Waves Mosaic Crochet Blanket Free Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Have you ever just closed your eyes with your face to the sun and soaked up all warmth it had to offer while listening to the waves come crashing in? There is just something about the crash of the waves on the shore that instantly puts me at ease, and I wanted to encompass that feeling in the Waves Mosaic Crochet Blanket. And if you love mosaic crochet, aslo check out the Wish Upon A Star Mosaic Blanket or the Desert Cactus Mosaic Crochet Free Blanket Pattern.

Just like the waves can put me in a meditative state, the simple repeats and stitches make working up the Waves Mosaic Crochet Blanket offers a similar calming to my body and brain. And something similar with a twist is the Lotus Mosaic Crochet Blanket.

Mosaic Crochet has been a popular new trend; I can see why after picking it up. Simple, beginner-friendly stitches are used, and you get a ton of texture and visual interest. As a general rule, you only use one color per row of work. With the Waves Mosaic Crochet Blanket, you can skip all the extra tails because you will be using the Interlocking Mosaic Technique - or working one color for two rows without cutting, you can just carry the yarn up.

The Waves Mosaic Crochet Blanket is a fun mosaic blanket with a rewarding repeat. This can be worked with just two colors, a new color for every 2 repeats, or even a new color for every repeat. Using your own color inspiration is what makes it fun!

There is no need to fasten off colors when changing every two rows; simply carry it up the side. The bor-
der will be worked over these strands.

For this style of crochet, I do not chain 2 to make the 1 chain space as other patterns do. I simply chain 1
for each skipped square loosely and continue on.
If you want to hide your chains on the back of your work, to not be a choking/entanglement risk, work
the mdc around the chain stitches so that the chain is incorporated into the mdc.

Special Stitches:
mdc: A mosaic double crochet is worked as a double crochet stitch, but it will be worked into the
skipped stitch three rows below. This stitch will be worked on the front (or right sides) or the blanket.

Mosaic Colorwork Chart

How to read the colorwork instructions:

In the colorwork section Color A will be abbreviated as (A), and Color B as (B). Example: (B) x 9 = with Color B sc the next 9 stitches

Each square on the chart represents a stitch. All the odd-numbered (RS) rows are from right to left. The even-numbered (WS) rows from left to right. Read the chart from bottom up.
Each chart row represents two rows of crochet and each of these rows will be done in the same color. The color shown in the first and the last stitches of the row indicate which color to use for these two rows.
Each square represents either a single crochet, chain-sp, or mosaic double crochet in the first row of that color. For the second row of that MC always work a single crochet into a single crochet or mosaic double crochet from the first row.
When the square on the chart is a different color than the row color, or color in use, make a chain-sp to skip the stitch(es) below.
Always ch 1 at the beginning of the row as your turning chain, this does not count as a stitch.
