Day 15 – Overlay Mosaic + back post sts

We’ve got a couple more days of repeating stitches we’ve done before, so you can relax for a little bit whilst we prepare for the big finale. Need a recap of these techniques? Take a look back at day 5!

Note: Overlay mosaic crochet is worked with the RS facing you at all times, so you will need to cut yarn at the end of rows 1–4. DO NOT TURN your work at the end of rows 1–4

    (RBC) Was it something like Round Treble backpost . So you put your needle through and around the back of the stitch.
