Another New Design!

My Mosaic Shadow Rug in included as a web bonus in Crochet World magazine. The first crochet project I worked on was a rug and that started a long love affair for me. They are like a blank canvas to be filled with color and texture.

This rug has both. The mosaic technique allows the stitcher to place different colors in specific spots while working with only one color at a time. Color changes are made by double crocheting over the opposite color (essentially covering up the previous color). These raised double crochets create a rich texture that will make you sink your feet into the rug and never want to leave!

Happy stitching!
