Mosaic Magic: Afghans Made Easy
By: Lily Chin
Knitters have long enjoyed mosaic knitting, a
colorful technique that uses slipped stitches to give the appearance of
knitting with many colors on one row. Now Chin has adapted this mosaic
technique to crochet, using it to great advantage here in designs for sumptuous
afghans, throws, and even a few garments. The interlocking color patterns
of mosaic crochet result from the "dropping" of long double crochet stitches
from one row to another row below, giving the appearance of colored tiles.
The "magic" of Chin's approach is that her designs combine mosaic crochet
techniques with simple single crochet stitches and bulky yarns so that
with this book even the beginning crocheter can quickly complete a throw
with that popular designer look. Recommended for public libraries.
