Sedona Mosaic Crochet Shawl Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links, view my disclosure policy for details.

The Sedona Mosaic Crochet Shawl is a real statement piece. Wear this whenever you want to turn heads!

As soon as I saw the Chroma “Sedona” colorway, I knew that it had the “wow” ​​factor that I was looking for. In winter, I tend to wear a lot of black and grey, so I wanted to create an accessory that would brighten up even the most dreary days.

This triangle scarf is definitely easier than it looks, and offers the perfect opportunity to try out mosaic crochet.

Studio Crochet | Issue 1

This pattern is featured in Issue 1 of Studio Crochet magazine!

This magazine is a brand new collaboration between Hannah from HanJan Crochet, RaeLynn from Itchin’ for some Stitchin’ and myself. 

The theme of our first issue is luxury, and this is exactly what we had in mind when creating our designs. The magazine is not only filled with premium crochet patterns, but also helpful articles, tips and tricks, as well as offering a little “behind the scenes” look into each of our lives.

If you are new to mosaic crochet, Issue 1 of Studio Crochet magazine also includes a full step-by-step mosaic crochet tutorial to accompany the Sedona Mosaic Shawl pattern.

There are 2 additional ways to get this pattern:

Option 1: You can purchase the individual pattern as an easy-to-read, print-friendly PDF in the following places:

Option 2: Scroll down to get the written instructions for this pattern for free (excludes mosaic charts).

The pattern uses the “inset” mosaic crochet technique, and this means that you only need to change colors every 2 rows – so despite all of the colorwork, there are actually minimal ends to weave in!

To create this shawl, you can follow the written instructions below, or if you prefer a visual representation of the pattern, the PDF version also includes colorwork charts for each of the mosaic sections. 

What you’ll need for this mosaic crochet scarf

Yarn

Any #4/worsted weight yarn in three contrasting colors will work great for this pattern. For my shawl, I used WeCrochet Chroma Worsted in the colorways Sedona, Bare and Black. I just adore the contrast between the bright gradient of Sedona and the monochrome black and white.

Chroma is a cozy blend of 70% superwash wool and 30% nylon – I definitely do not feel the cold with this triangle scarf!

Hook

For my shawl, I used a 5.5mm (I-9) crochet hook. It is not absolutely essential to match gauge for this pattern (as it would be for a garment for example). But you will want to choose a hook size that does not create very tight stitches, as this would make your scarf fabric just a bit too dense.

Other supplies

You will also need a yarn needle to weave in those ends.

Mosaic Crochet Shawl Construction

This shawl is crocheted using the “inset” mosaic crochet technique. With this form of mosaic crochet, rows are worked in pairs, and you will change colors every 2 rows. The nice thing about this is that you won’t have a million ends to weave in at the end!

If you are new to mosaic crochet, Issue 1 of Studio Crochet magazine also includes a full step-by-step mosaic crochet tutorial to accompany the Sedona Mosaic Shawl pattern.

This triangle scarf is worked from side to side, starting at the narrowest point and then increasing in width with each row. Conveniently, your row number will always correspond to your stitch count. So, you will always know what row you are on simply by counting your stitches!

Construction

  • This triangle shawl is crocheted from side to side, starting at the narrowest point, and increasing in width with each row.
  • Each row increases the stitch count by 1.
  • On RS rows, the increase is made at the end of the row.
  • On WS rows, the increase is made at the start of the row.
  • The shawl is worked over 7 sections as follows:
    • Color Block 1 (C1)
    • Mosaic Section 1 (C1 & C2)
    • Color Block 2 (C2)
    • Mosaic Section 2 (C2 & C3)
    • Color Block 3 (C3)
    • Mosaic Section 3 (C3 & C1)
    • Color Block 4 (C1)

Mosaic Crochet

  • The Mosaic Sections in this shawl are worked using the “inset mosaic crochet” technique.
  • In each Mosaic Section, rows are worked as a pair e.g. Row 1a, Row 1b, Row 2a, Row 2b etc.
  • Each pair is worked in a single color – there are no “mid-row” color changes.
  • For each Mosaic Section, you can either follow the written instructions below, or use the colorwork chart for the relevant section in print-friendly PDF.

Color Changes

  • At the end of each “b” row, change color on the last yarn over of the last sc, and then begin the next “a” row with the new color.
  • Between row pairs, do not cut yarn unless instructed to do so; you will simply float the new yarn up as required for each color change.

General Pattern Notes

  • Ch 1 at the start of each row does not count as a stitch.
  • In Mosaic Sections, “ch 2, sk next st” counts as 1 st.
  • The stitch count for each row is given in [ ] at the end of the row.
