The Medina Mosaic tiles are inspired on the colourfull and bright Mosaic designs you’ll find in many places around the Mid-East. I tried to capture the mystic, complex and intregious look of them into these tiles. The mosaic- or also known as interlocking crochet technique really suited the theme for this. The pointy corners and combined texture are really fitting the idea.

Some practical things about the pattern.

The pattern comes in a written version with photo-instructions along the way. But there is also a printfriendly version without any photos. As this pattern is really easy to make and have a beginners experience level i think you will use the printfriendly version as well because it is more practical.

The pattern is tested carefully before publishing it.

The pattern is now available in English, Finnish, Spanish, German, Dutch, Swedish, Polish, Czech, Indonesian, Turkish and French.

German version is translated by Christina Berberich. Dutch version is translated by Iris Mekeirel ( rocknwol ). French version is translated by Anna Lainé. The Swedish version is translated by Johanna Lindahl from Mijo Crochet. The Polish version is translated by Anna from nitkomanka.The Czech version is translated by Helen KA. The Indonesian translation is made by Tayu Purnamasari. The Tukish version is made by Idil Caliskan. The Spanish version is translated by Julia Veloso.The Finnish version is made by Riikka Panu.

All information about colours is in the pattern. The tiles are build up with 22 colors of Scheepjes Catona yarn. This is a lot, but as you will use some colours just for a few rows it is great you can buy also smaller amounts of this yarn to save money. But….as i wrote down every detail about using colours, you can make this pattern with any kind of yarn and as much colours as you like. Even if you use two colours it works out great. Or maybe use scrap yarns ?
In the pattern i didn’t make a end total up for all the yarn i used but instead of that i just wrote down how much you need to make a tile per colour. As you maybe want to rearrange the coloured tiles in a different way the mine, you can just calcute how much you need. So its flexible in every way !

UPDATE 10/03 : I’ve wrote a seperate blogpost on my blog about the total amounts of yarn needed to make th original version of the pattern. There were a lot of questions about it.

The finished size of a tile will be : 13 x 13 cm / 5,1 inches x 5,1 inches
The finished size of the entire project with border will be : 90 x 90 cm / 35,4 inches x 35,4 inches

The pattern contains really easy stitch content, mostly of them are sc’s and dc’s, and some back loop and front loop crocheting.

The pattern is build up in different parts. Of course there is all the practical information, as the pattern to the medina mosaic tile. It is just one single square made in 5 different colour combinations. Then there is a description on how to join the tiles and of course the border part.

06/10 : errata : Round 14 says you must have a total of 12, sc’s on both sides, this must be 13. After this date the pattern is updated.
