Lily Chin, the high-energy, in-demand designer twice named the Fastest Crocheter in the World, shares her surprisingly simple technique for crocheting intricate color patterns. In Mosaic Magic, each crochet project starts with rows of simple single crochet stitches, working with one color on a row at a time. The interlocking color patterns come from dropping long double crochet stitches from the working row to another row below. The 40 afghans, plus the 9 other projects (stole and hat, tea cozy and place mat, rug and pillow, women's vest and jacket, and men's pullover), found in Mosaic Magic fit a host of decors and fashion preferences. Pattern stitch multiples are given for each design so that crocheters can also use the patterns to develop their own projects.
