Editorial Reviews

With the help of master crocheter Lily Chin, you'll learn mosaic crochet techniques that will improve your ability to create stunning and colorful crocheted afghans and more. Based off the mosaic knitting principle of working one color at a time, Lily Chin walks you through the steps of creating a mosaic fabric by crocheting downward to cover the previous color row. The right side of your fabric comes alive with color, and the wrong side rows are plain single crochet-making this technique easy for all skill levels, focusing on patterns every other row.

5.0 out of 5 stars The DVD is a Great Companion to the Book September 9, 2011
By J. Bass
I bought this DVD bundled with Ms Chin's Mosaic Crochet book (the 2006 edition) from another online source, because the DVD wasn't availabe on Amazon at the time of my purchase and I wanted to get both the DVD and book. (Please note: The DVD listing here on Amazon is only for the DVD. The book must be purchased separately.)

The DVD is wonderful. While the two basic stitches used in mosaic crocheting are the single crochet and the long double crochet (Ldc), it's how Ms Chin uses these two stitches, how she varies the Ldc and how she mixes up the variations and colors to create interesting effects and textures that's so intriguing.

On the DVD, Ms. Chin demonstrations how to do several variations of the Ldc: the I stitch, the slash (a slanted I stitch), the V stitch (both regular and lopsided), the X stitch and the "chicken feet" stitch. She also shows some of her favorite combinations of these stitches and shows how using one, two or three colors can change the look. Also there are short intros on how to do post stitching, the Tunisian simple stitch and the foundation single crochet (fsc) stitch (all within the context of mosaic crochet).

There are no patterns included on the DVD, just demos, but most of the finished projects that Ms Chin uses in the DVD to showcase the mosaic technique are included in her book. In fact, after finishing the DVD, I went back and made additional notes in the book for each project, such as which Ldc stitches were used.

I highly recommend this DVD to anyone interested in learning more about mosaic crochet and to anyone who has purchased Ms Chin's book on mosaic crochet. It's a great companion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful DVD September 2, 2011
I watched this DVD from beginning to end. I have already used the first lesson and will watch it again to do some of the advanced techniques. She shows and explains what she is doing and how she can use the particular stitch combinations in actual afghans and garments along the way. I would recommend this to an advanced beginner for the first few lessons as it incorporates basically the single crochet and a long double crochet, not difficult.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool video June 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
The video is pretty cool, but she tends to keep going on and on about the stitches, and not really showing much of how they are really done.

Buy the book to go along with the video, otherwise you will be stuck in deep doo-doo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mosaic Crochet September 24, 2013

The book is just pictures of the afghans----no instructions or how-to. I bought the DVD to give me the how-to. I wish it had been in the book too though---as I learn better from reading it.

If you want to learn more ways to crochet and how to do them then get "Mosaic Crochet" with lily Chin showing you how to do each and every different kind of mosaic crochet you can think of. It is very detailed and Lily Chin talks at a level that everyone can understand.

Cheers
