Have your tried Mosaic Crochet? Mosaic crochet is a technique where you can create
tons of colorful geometric patterns, but you only have to work with one color per row!
This is achieved by working one to two rows skipping stitches in a sequential pattern, then filling in the skipped stitches with an alternate color on the next row.
It is really quite fun and addictive! We’ve included two photo tutorials and a few easy projects to get you going.
Start by making the Mosaic Tiles Place Mat to get the hang of it, and then progress on to the gorgeous Morocco Mosaic Afghan!
We’ve also included an article about Hat Not Hate, an anti-bullying campaign launched by Lion Brand Yarn Company and their brand ambassador, Shira Blumenthal. The campaign raises anti-bullying awareness by distributing blue hats to school-aged children each October. We’ve included 2 hat patterns so you can join in this worthwhile cause.
