Colorwork the Easy Way! Mosaic Knitting
Thursday, October 15, 2020
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (EDT)

Slip-stitch patterns can boast amazing colorwork without the hassle of stranding or working with multiple colors in a row! Along with the basic mosaic knitting technique, learn how charts are written and read differently for Mosaic knitting and about the visual characteristics of Mosaic fabric, including when combinations of variegated and solid color yarn will work together and when they will not. Practical tips about navigating the technique and advice regarding the best uses for mosaic knitting are included. Once you learn the technique on a practice swatch, you will proceed to knitting a mosaic hat designed by the instructor.
