Mosaic Crochet Mittens

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

― George Bernard Shaw 

These overlay mosaic crochet mittens work up quickly 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

Mitten Construction – How to crochet Mittens

The mosaic crochet mittens are constructed by working from the top down. I love working Mosaic Crochet in the round because You can very easily create a seamless join. To keep this crochet pattern simple I worked rows for the thumb opening. So you will have a few ends to weave but only for the thumb section. The crochet mitten is completed with a join as you go cuff and then the thumb is worked around the thumb opening.

How to read a Crochet Mosaic Chart: 

How to read a Mosaic Crochet 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.

Special Stitches:

Drop-down Dc – Drop-Down Double Crochet – Work a double crochet in the front loop of stitch 2 rows below.

Inv sc2tog – Invisible Single Crochet Decrease – Go through the front loop only of next 2 sts, yo pull through two loops, yo pull through last two loops.
