 “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

― George Bernard Shaw

The Modish Mosaic Hat works up quickly in overlay mosaic crochet and the results are stunning. The overlay mosaic crochet technique involves working single crochet stitches in the back loop and working drop-down double crochet stitches to create the design. So if you can crochet these stitches you’ll have no problem crocheting this pattern.

Hat Construction – How to crochet the Modish Mosaic Hat

The mosaic crochet hat is worked from the bottom up. The band is worked in rows then joined. The mosaic pattern is worked around the band in rounds. The top of the hat is decreased and gathered to close the top of the hat.

How to read a Crochet Mosaic Chart: 

The chart is read from right to left for each round. Rounds are worked in alternating colours, as indicated on the left column. The entire round is worked in the colour stated. Ignore the colours displayed in each box; this shows how the pattern will look; you will not change colour throughout a round. A blank box indicates you will work a sc in the blo. A box marked with an X indicates working a drop-down double crochet.

When working mosaic crochet in the round, don’t cut colours. Drop off the colour at the end of the round and pick up new colour as you go. Colour is changed at the sl st join. Always tighten yarn tails when joining at the end of each round; this will keep the join invisible.

The pattern is worked in multiples of 4
