How to Mosaic Crochet: I have already talked about How to Read Mosaic Knitting Charts. So today, let’s do the same for crochet.
Mosaic Crochet vs Mosaic Knitting: I have already talked about Mosaic Knitting Basics and then, What is Mosaic Crochet? (or what it isn’t). So before I move on to talk about how to mosaic crochet, let’s have a quick look at the differences between Mosaic Knitting and Mosaic Crochet.
This is the Barbara Walker Mosaic Knitting Chart I worked off.
The main question begins with “What is Mosaic Crochet?” But maybe what I should say is,
What isn’t Mosaic Crochet?
A quick posting on this adorable pair of baby Elephant Booties. Included here are some basic starting steps. And a link to the requisite free crochet pattern.
Teddy Bear booties is a brown, soft and cuddly pair of baby booties. Crochets steps and tips follows.

A chart of bootie sizes is a handy thing to have if you are into making booties for babies. Obviously! As with much of the measurements of things, there does not seem to be a concrete, universally agreed upon sizing. So I will just go with this below.
How to make and put together Tapestry Crochet bags sequentially
I was hooking away at my amigurumi and then pop! I was into making tapestry crochet bags!! I don’t even know how that transition happened.

I call this stitch the “ksc stitch” (knit single crochet stitch). I came upon it in experimentations. I call it “Knit single crochet” (or ksc for short) because it looks like a stockinnette knit stitch, doesn’t it?
For me, this is the ideal stitch for use in crochet amigurumi doorstops and for tapestry crochet bags. The ksc stitch produces a very strong fabric (almost like woven canvas) and is so dense that it is prevents weighted amigurumi small stuffing from falling out.
