I always have the best intentions when I buy a new pattern book. As I did when I bought this book at the end of 2016. Unfortunately, there is always so many others patterns I would also like to do, which is why I am just now going through this great book. So you can see that by the time I work down my bucket list, a few years usually pass down the road. There are just so many beautiful patterns out there to try, and not enough time.
Although, I am so glad I pulled out “Learn to Crochet Mosaic Hats” for this years “Bucket List” month. Not only did it give me an opportunity to crochet some beautiful hats but also to learn a new technique.
I love the Mosaic crochet afghans and plan to do one in the future, but for learning purposes I thought it might be wiser to start out with small, instant gratification projects. By doing so, it will help encourage me to learn the next combination of stitches, and by giving me some experience in different pattern combinations using this technique.
If you are wanting to learn the crochet Mosaic stitch or just crochet a few small hats, this is a book you might want to invest in. It is a well written book with very easy to understand instructions.
One thing I liked was the fact that every pattern used the same size hook to crochet all the hats. I know this might not seem very important but is was nice crocheting from one hat to the next without changing hooks.
Even though the instructions were clearly written, each row has a pattern that must be followed in order to achieve the desired design. Once I figured out the pattern, it was an easy repeat across. Just make sure you take your time, go slow, and be certain you have the pattern correct before proceeding.
Also, I would suggest you keep an eye on where you are, if you lose what row you are on the hat will not come out right.
Lastly, I would strongly suggest you read through the section in the front and take the time to practice the stitch before you start your first hat. In the long run it will save you lots of time.
If you have already mastered the Mosaic crochet technique or like me, would like to learn it. Please comment below and let me know.
FYI: Tomorrow I will be posting a tutorial on the basic mosaic crochet technique and on Wednesday the finished hats from this month’s “Bucket List”.
Until next time, keep those hooks flying.
