Berg Shawl: mosaic crochet pattern

My mosaic crochet obsession began back in 2017. One sleepy early morning, after a cup of coffee I occasionally found an old free afghan pattern using mosaic crochet. I was impressed by its effective look and simplicity at the same time. And it inspired me to design my own Nya Mosaic Blanket later, which became quite a hit. (A new, continuous version of this pattern is being prepared at the moment and will be released very soon, so stay tuned!)

I left mosaic crochet for a while, but my social media feeds have been heavily covered with mosaic projects. And I decided to come back to this amazing technique. My recent design using it was Fjell Cardigan. And today I would like to introduce Berg Shawl!

The pattern is available on Etsy HERE and Ravelry HERE with 20% off through Monday, July 8th, 2019. No code is needed as the discount was already applied and the price you see is final. After that date the pattern will be listed at a regular price.

Berg Shawl consists of drapey and slightly textured body (made with so called Lemon Peel crochet stitch), several narrow mosaic stripes and one wide mosaic panel with arrows. When the body is finished, a simple border is added along two straight sides with shells and picots.

The difficulty level of this pattern is rated as “Intermediate”, but like with any mosaic crochet pattern I would say it is aimed to adventurous beginners. There are no difficult or tricky stitches. Just single crochet, double crochet stitches (US terms) and chains are used here. So the stitches are not unusual or difficult, but their placement will require some attention and concentration. But it’s also fun!

Berg Shawl pattern can be followed either with written row-by-row instructions or with the chart. Additionally you’ll have loads of progress pictures in the end of the pattern showing every mosaic row. The layout was made in such a way so that you don’t have to print them out, to save ink and paper. You can print out written text and refer to pictures on your tablet, phone or laptop.

What you will need

This pattern was written for Fingering yarn (4ply). I used a mix of hand dyed yarns by different brands. They are merino and linen blends.

I’ve bought several hanks from Pipa Yarns, a local Czech dyer. Petra lives just around the corner a place I will move to in autumn (hopefully). We occasionally got aquatinted on Ravelry last year. Such an unexpected and happy coincidence. Petra is shipping worldwide and is open to custom orders. Make sure to check her website.

I found out that 3mm Tulip crochet hook gave the drape I needed.

Some testers decided to switch to a larger hook for an extra softness. And yes, I am in LOVE with all test samples. Aren’t they magic?

I made two samples for myself, combining colors I had in stash. They look similar, but still each has its own character. I think green is my favourite. Mysterious :)
