All About Mosaic Crochet

So, what is mosaic crochet, you ask? Mosaic crochet is a colorwork technique that uses two (or more) different yarns to create an intricate-looking pattern without changing colors within the row or round. 

There are a few different techniques within mosaic crochet. The most common are inset mosaic crochet and overlay mosaic crochet (though you might hear of some other mosaic crochet techniques as well).

Mosaic crochet requires at least two colors to achieve the beautiful colorwork effect. (Check out this post on changing colors in crochet if you’ve never done this before.) So, you’ll notice that many patterns in the list below recommend two different yarns. Feel free to choose your own yarns and colors if you prefer – just be sure to check your gauge if you’re substituting yarn brands.
