How To Read A Crochet Mosaic Chart

The mosaic crochet 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 the colour stated. Ignore the colours displayed in each box; this shows how the pattern will loo.

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.

This pattern is worked in multiples of 8 plus 3. For the baby blanket ch 96 plus 3, for a throw ch 160 plus 3.

For Rows 1 -2 you will work your colours just back loop sc all along placing a sc into both loops for the first and last sc.

You will work row 2-30 as the pattern suggests, the rest will be a repetition of row 2-17 till you reach your desired size.

If you choose to work your crochet blanket like i did, that is working 30 rows of mosaic then 16 rows dc, then just complete the mosaic graph, however, if you wish to work a whole crochet blanket using the mosaic pattern, repeat rows 2-17. Or, after you are done with row 30, go back to row 2.

Well, finish the blanket, then we shall get back to busincess. Caring about the blanket.

How to care for a mosaic blanket

Before i explain how to wash a crochet mosaic blanket, read the yarn labels. So will allow washing machines, while others will only call for hand washing. So depending on the yarn you use, washing methods will differ.

Be sure to wash the blanket before use, because trust me, it is dirty from all the moving around of the blanket when you were crocheting and the yarn of course. You do not know what it has been through. I hope you enjoy your new crochet blanket.
