10 Free Mosaic Crochet Patterns
There are two main variants of mosaic patterns: overlay and inset (or interlocking). Overlay stitches are made in the front or back loop only. In my opinion, overlay is the easiest and fastest way to crochet this technique and it also saves yarn. You can find my overlay mosaic crochet tutorial here.
Interlocking mosaic crochet uses double crochets and chains to create a design on the right side and the wrong side, making it reversible. Both layered techniques create a super thick and cozy fabric.
I have included a variety of patterns in both overlay and inset mosaic crochet so you can try them both and see which style you prefer. Most of these patterns include written instructions and mosaic charts to help you visualize where to place the stitches.
