  1. Begin by selecting your Main Color (MC) and Contrasting Color (CC) yarns. You will alternate between these colors to create the zig-zag effect.
  2. Start with a foundation chain of the desired length for your project. The pattern works in multiples of a certain number of stitches to maintain the zig-zag pattern. Make sure your foundation chain is a multiple of this number.
  3. Row 1 (Right Side): Using MC, single crochet (sc) in the second chain from the hook and in each chain across.
  4. Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), turn. Sc in each stitch across using CC.
  5. Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first stitch using CC. Sc in the next stitch using MC, sc in the next stitch using CC. Repeat from * to * across the row.
  6. Row 4: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first stitch using CC. Sc in the next stitch using CC, sc in the next stitch using MC. Repeat from * to * across the row.
  7. Repeat Rows 3 and 4: Continue alternating between Rows 3 and 4 to create the zig-zag pattern. Remember to change colors at the beginning of each row to achieve the mosaic effect.
  8. Continue repeating Rows 3 and 4 until your project reaches the desired height.
  9. Finish off your work and weave in any loose ends.
