The Mosaic Gift Card Cozy ornament is worked from the Top-Down. Begin working the band in rows from the side across. Join the band and work the mosaic pattern in rounds around the band. Sc together to seam the bottom of the cozy. Add a tassel and wooden bead on a string for hanging.
Drop-down Dc – Drop-Down Double Crochet – Work a double crochet in the front loop of stitch 2 rows below.
How to read a Mosaic Crochet Chart:
The chart is read from right to left for each round. Rounds are worked in alternating colors, as indicated on the left column. The entire round is worked in the color stated. Ignore the colors displayed in each box; this shows how the pattern will look; you will not change color 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 colors. Drop off the color at the end of the round and pick up new colour as you go. Color is changed at the sl st join in the blo. Always tighten yarn tails when joining at the end of each round; this will keep the join invisible.

I’m so happy with how my Christmas Tree turned out. I added wooden bead garland and a few pinecone ornaments. Not only do these ornaments look beautiful on a Christmas tree, but they make the perfect present toppers as well. The decorations vary in skill level, and some can be made with no crochet experience. That way, the entire family can get involved. I used my Easy C2C Blanket for my Tree Skirt and the plaid blanket will be coming to my shop soon. If you love my Christmas Sweater you can get it HERE and my skirt HERE.
