Are you ready? It’s time for the second instalment of my Mosaic Crochet Mini Series where we’ll be learning all about Inset Mosaic Crochet. If you missed the first part, I’d highly recommend that you check it out first! You can find it here; Overlay Mosaic Crochet.
It’s you’re not already mad about Mosaic, maybe this tutorial will convince you! I absolutely adore this technique. It’s fun to make and creates absolutely beautiful looking graphic designs. I LOVE modern Mosaic crochet!
As I mentioned, we’ll be covered Inset Mosaic today, however if you want to catch the whole series here are the important dates:
- Overlay Mosaic Crochet
- Inset Mosaic Crochet
- 3 Ways Of Dealing With Ends!
- NEW PATTERN!
WHAT WILL THIS SERIES TEACH ME?
This video will introduce you to the basics of Mosaic Crochet, including:
Mosaic Crochet Video:
- Reading a chart
- Basic technique
- Differences between Overlay and Inset
- Demonstration of pattern – I’ll be demonstrating using a popular Mosaic pattern.
Once you get the hang of this, your possibilities will be endless!
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN OVERLAY AND INSET MOSAIC?
Stitches worked into BLO or FLO
Pattern work in one row of each colour without turning
Yarn tied off at the end of each row which created lots of ends
Stitches worked into full stitch
Pattern worked in 2 rows of each colour turning at the end of row
Yarn is not tied off so there aren’t lot’s of ends and you can ‘float’ up yarn.

Yarn: In the videos I have used MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran in Stone and Ice. However, as this is a general stitch tutorial any yarn can be used!
Hook: Use the correct hook for your yarn. I have used a 5.5mm
I also recommend you download this file: Mosaic Inset PDF, so that you can join in with the video.
This technique is worked back and forth working 2 rows of one colour at a time. You do not need to tie off your yarn.
Stitches are worked into the full stitch
You will be creating space for the ‘drop down’ treble by creating a chain space.

I’m interested, but wish there were a text version. I’m just not keen on video tutorials.

I have a blog post detailing my favourite borders here: https://blog.bellacococrochet.com/my-favourite-crochet-borders/ – these would all work well with this pattern, depending on what kind of look you’re going for
