Book Description

Mosaic crochet is a cutting-edge technique that allows you to work two-colour patterns without having to change yarns in one row. You simply skip stitches in one row and connect them by filling in with the alternate colour two rows later. This produces incredible modern geometric patterns that look amazing as throws, blankets, afghans, pillows, rugs, bags and other accessories  using a much easier method than other crochet colourwork techniques. One crochet hook and two balls of yarn are all you need to get started. 

While it might look complex, mosaic crochet is actually incredibly straightforward once you learn the basic techniques. If you can work a chain, a double crochet (US single crochet) and a treble crochet (US double crochet), then you can mosaic crochet. If you're a beginner don't worry, all the stitches you need are covered in the book. And what's even better is that there are minimal ends to sew in because it works on a two-row method with the yarn carried up the side of the work.

In the only book on the subject, crochet designer Esme Crick of Red Sparrow Crochet, shows you how to make 12 bold, statement throws and then how to use the same pattern to create a further 12 spin-off designs for smaller projects. Esme shares her skills, passion and gentle humour with you, so that you too can create beautiful throws and stylish homewares whatever your crochet level. And it's not just about slavishly following a pattern, but about building your confidence to make these designs your own, exploring the possibilities of colour and being inspired to start your own design adventures along the way.

With full step-by-step guidance on the mosaic stitch, charts for all the mosaic crochet patterns, and 24 projects to make with full written patterns, this stylish modern crochet book will change the way you approach crochet colourwork forever and give you a wealth of beautiful throws and accessories for your home.

Inside Crochet

One of the simplest - and most effective - methods of crocheted colourwork is mosaic crochet. You only work with one colour at a time, so there's no juggling yarn, and once you've got the hang of the pattern it's wonderfully meditative. Esme Crick (@redsparrowcrochet) is one of the best-known mosaic crochet designers, and with good reason - her classic yet contemporary patterns have something for everyone. Her book begins with a detailed introduction to the technique, with plenty of colourful step-by-step photographs. Then it's on to the projects - 24 in total, with 12 throws and 12 contemporary patterns featuring the same mosaic designs. Each design also includes swatches to show you an alternative colour combination. 

The Block Party Throw is a wonderfully modern blanket to display over an armchair or the back of a sofa, while the combination of black and white patterning with a bright green border in the Diamonds Throw is a real show-stopper! The soothing colours of the Dutch Houses Throw are a great way to show off a non-geometric design, while our favourite has to be the fabulous Yes Throw - guaranteed to make you smile every time you look at it.
