Project-Based Mosaic Knitting
Learn the magic of mosaic knitting. You can knit with two colors the easy way – with the strategic use of slipped stitches. You will create intricate looking patterns while using only one color per row! There is no need for stranding or carrying a second color of yarn along the wrong side of the knitting. You will look at garter and stockinette versions of mosaic patterns, work on understanding the concept by swatching a couple of patterns. We will also look at reading mosaic color charts (it is super easy) and then cast on a design from Simone’s mosaic colorwork collection. *Note: Simone is working on a fingering weight cowl design for this workshop – photo to follow. This pattern will be available for purchase at the workshop.
