Mosaic crochet (also called overlay mosaic crochet or just overlay crochet) is a technique that uses BLO (back loops only) single crochet stitches and FLO (front loops only) dropped double crochet stitches to create intricate designs. In fact, you would crochet textured stitches that lay over (hence the name overlay crochet) previous row stitches. As a result, it creates very intricate patterns reminiscent of tapestry or cross-stitching.
A corner-to-corner crochet shawl uses a popular technique of C2C crochet that consists of diagonal rows to create a square. As we create a triangle, you would be only increasing rows, so there is no need to learn the decrease. As a result, each angled row has numerous “tiles,” additionally called “squares” or “blocks.” In short, each tile has 3 double crochet stitches, plus 3 chains that represent a fourth dc stitch. Note: to keep your edges straight, make the last double crochet of the row into the top of the turning chain instead of the chain space.
