Mosaic Crochet Patterns Part 4 "THE SAMPLER THROW"



The Mosaic Crochet
Sampler Throw

The inspiration behind this mosaic crochet throw is from embroidery and weaving designs.
Some of the patterns just had to be turned side ways to achieve the design in mosaic crochet.
Then I had to decipher the lengths of the vertical patterns to make them in a uniformed design for the mosaic crochet technique.
Once I had them all graphed out I just had to work out how many repeats of each design I would need to make the pattern work.
So I went with the Mosaic Funky graph first
with the repeat of 48 st's for the pattern sequence I began with 100 chain stitches. 96 st's for 2 pattern repeats a side stitch for each side and a spare stitch for after and before both side stitches, which gave me a narrow border on the throw.
I crocheted over my end st's as I worked the throw.
I used Worsted weight (10 ply) and a 5mm hook.

Within the graphs I have marked the mosaic double crochet with a d, I've designed other graphs with an x, I thought it may be less confusing?

I have begun to write written instructions and will eventually include them within this post.

I separated each pattern with a couple of rows of single crochet made in the back loops also.

Mosaic Crochet Patterns Part 3




My Mosaic Crochet Journey 3

This mosaic crochet pattern chart is part three of the many patterns I want to share with you.

Mosaic Crochet "Me A Solid Heart" is an excellent sampler for those of you, who want to try mosaic for the first time.
It's 39 st's wide and 27 rows.
The pattern is shown in both the graph and written instructions.
This is what your sampler will look like once completed.
I used Au 8 ply (US DK light worsted) yarn and a 3.5 (E 4) mm hook.
It measures approx 7 inches in height and 10 inches wide.
This would be a great width for a scarf  (39 st's).
Then you would just repeat the 27 rows over and over until you reach the scarf length  required.

A couple of tips here.


The written instructions are in US terms.

You can click on the graph picture to download for your personal use. 
 I have also made this graph pattern with the outline of a heart.
This will look great along side of your solid heart pattern.

Based on the solid heart graph, I have made a much larger graph, it's called endless love.

Mosaic Crochet Patterns Part Two




My Mosaic Crochet Journey 2


This mosaic crochet pattern chart is part two of the many patterns I want to share with you.

I call this one Zig Zagged.
I made a pillow cushion with a starting chain of 120 so I could repeat the pattern sequence 6 times.
To avoid hiding or sewing in the ends of a mosaic row, I made it in the round by slip stitching the starting chain ends together to form a circle, then I just followed the graph pattern repeats over and over until I had the height that I wanted for the pillow cushion.
I used a 5 mm hook and worsted/10 ply yarn.
I think it turned out pretty good and I only had to join the top and bottoms of the pillow cushion.
Here is the chart I made to use for the mosaic crochet pillow cushion.
Click on the chart, then right click the chart to save it.

 Although the charts take many hours to perfect then make, I love to share my creations freely with you all.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more.

Mosaic Crochet Patterns Part One



My Mosaic Crochet Journey
 
I have been enjoying my mosaic crochet journey so much that I have been designing my own mosaic pattern charts which I want to share with you all. 
This is part one as I have plenty more to share with you.
Free Pattern
The cushion on the left has a simple formation of triangles.
I stacked the pattern on the lower part of the cushion.
The upper pattern (left cushion) begins the same as the lower pattern and with the second repeat I flipped it to form a different look which I loved as it reminded me of a sliced up orange.
I then made the cushion on the right with a stand alone version of that pattern.
Below is the graph that I created for these mosaic designs, feel free to use them.
Although the charts take many hours to perfect then make, I love to share my creations freely with you all.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more.

 This is the complete chart for the cushion on the left.
