What is Mosaic Crochet Anyway?

Mosaic crochet is a super cool colorwork technique that allows you to creates complex color patterns and designs without changing colors in the center of a row.

While mosaic crochet looks extremely intricate, it can actually be easier than other colorwork techniques. It often requires working in rows/rounds below the current row/round to create the cool color effects. (You’ll see more of how this works in the tutorial links below!)
