These 14 mosaic crochet patterns are so beautiful, they are going to make you want to start crocheting immediately.
Ever seen a crochet project that has contained an amount of detail that you can’t wrap your head around? Well, it is most likely a piece done with a style of crochet called mosaic crochet.
This method of crochet is also called jacquard, intarsia, tapestry, fair isle, and colorwork crochet. It is a method that mostly uses single and double crochet to make incredibly detailed patterns. However, it is hard to make shaped projects in this style.
Because mosaic crochet can produce some beautiful designs but is mostly flat, many people use it to make Afghans, pillow covers, and wall hangings.
If you know how to do regular crochet then you will have no trouble picking up mosaic crochet.
