Mosaic crochet is a beautiful and easy way to create colourwork patterns. It works up quickly and the results are stunning. The 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
The Surfside Mosaic Pillow crochet pattern is designed in Brava worsted from WeCrochet. You can go check out the gorgeous selection of colours Brava worsted offers HERE. Brava offers a smaller selection of Brava 500 if you prefer working from one large ball.
The surfside mosaic pillow is made by crocheting a mosaic front panel and single crochet back panel. The panels are finished with a slip stitch border. Panels are then single crocheted together. Tails are hidden inside the pillow so that there are no ends to weave.
If you love the crochet throw blanket on the end of my bed you can also crochet that pattern! Find the Free crochet pattern HERE.
So let’s go over the basics to get you started crocheting the Surfside Mosaic pillow pattern.
How to read a Crochet Mosaic Chart:
The chart is read from right to left for each row. Rows are worked in alternating colours, as indicated on the left column. The entire row is worked in colour stated. Ignore the colours displayed in each box; this shows how the pattern will look; you will not change colour throughout a row. 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. Work a single crochet through both loops for the first and last stitch of a row. When working mosaic crochet in rows, you will cut the yarn at the end of every row.
The chart below is an example ONLY (not the pillow chart)
