What is Mosaic Crochet?
Mosaic crochet is a technique that creates the illusion of complex colorwork using simple stitches. Instead of working with multiple strands of yarn at once, you work with only one color per row, using slip stitches to create a mosaic pattern. This technique is easy to learn and perfect for beginners looking to experiment with colorwork without the hassle of changing colors.
Worsted weight yarn in seven different colors (or colors of your choice)

Row 3: Chain 3. *Skip the next chain-1 space, slip stitch into the next single crochet. Chain 1.* Repeat from * to * across. Double crochet into the last single crochet. Turn.
Row 4: Chain 1. Single crochet into the first stitch. *Chain 1, skip the next chain-1 space, single crochet into the next slip stitch.* Repeat from * to * across, ending with a single crochet in the top of the turning chain. Turn.
Row 5: Chain 3. *Slip stitch into the next chain-1 space, chain 1. Skip the next single crochet.* Repeat from * to * across. Double crochet into the last single crochet. Turn.
Repeat rows 2-5 until your blanket measures 60 inches in length, or until desired length is reached.
