What is Mosaic Crochet?
First, let's focus on the most common first question: what is it? The mosaic crochet technique involves crocheting with two colors (traditionally) without changing the yarn in the row.
It is also known as colorwork crochet and it's often described as the same or similar technique to tapestry crochet.
Both can involve charts or diagrams and create stunning visuals.
The way that mosaic crochet comes together is moving back and forth with the colors and that results in beautiful and creative motifs. The front looks one way and the back looks another.
See for yourself with this list of 10 Free Mosaic Crochet Blanket Patterns.
Blankets, afghans, and throws display this technique beautifully because it's one big piece that can show off the motif in any way you want.
The focal point is stunning no matter what design you go with. Stick with two colors or go wild with a stunning arrangement that truly embraces the tessellation.
You'll see every type in this collection. Browse these pretty mosaic crochet afghans and choose your next exciting project!
