Mosaic Chart Directory for Knitting and Crochet


75 geometric designs by Anna Nikipirowicz

Book Description

A collection of 75 exciting modern mosaic designs suitable for both crocheters and knitters. Every pattern includes photographs of both the knitted and crocheted samples, charts, and written instructions.

Mosaic crochet and knitting is an easy, versatile colorwork technique allowing the maker to create stunning patterns without having to carry multiple strands of yarn per row. This technique allows you to create striking geometric patterns that can be used on everything from homewares such as blankets and pillow covers through to accessories.

Although it looks impressive, mosaic crochet and knitting techniques are easy to learn and fun to do. Mosaic crochet work is done with a combination of chain stitches and varying stitch lengths over a couple of rows, and mosaic knitting is done with a combination of knit and slip stitches.

There is a section at the beginning which looks at both mosaic knitting and crochet techniques with step-by-step photography and instructions so you can brush up on your technique. This is followed by the stitch directory which is grouped by theme including: Geometric, Aztec, Nature, Seasonal and General.

Every design starts with an introduction followed by a guide on how to mosaic knit and crochet it with colourwork charts and photography showing both knit and crochet samples. Each pattern has an ability grading (in hooks and needles) and they vary in complexity from very simple designs through to much more complex chevron and diamond patterns.

About the Author

About Anna Nikipirowicz

Anna Nikipirowicz was taught to knit and crochet as a child by her very talented mother, but without practice, the skills were quickly forgotten. In 2005 she rediscovered her skills and an obsession was born. In 2014 she started designing and selling her patterns, and her designs are regularly featured in craft magazines. Anna is a keen blogger and runs her website www.moochka.co.uk where she shares her love of knitting and crochet. Anna is also a workshop tutor, teaching knitting and crochet across the UK. She has published four books with Search Press, and her Crocheted Wreaths for the Home (Search Press, 2020) is a bestseller.

Anna lives in Hertfordshire with her husband Dave and two cats, Ollie and Brick.
