mosaic knitting

It IS possible to knit intricate colorwork designs using only one strand of yarn per row! It’s called mosaic knitting, and it’s almost too good to be true. This knitting method of colorwork is so streamlined and easy that suddenly, colorwork is accessible to everyone who is comfortable with knitting and purling. 

Students will acquire a working knowledge of how to read a mosaic color chart, how to knit mosaic, how to easily manage the floats that result from mosaic knitting, and just for good measure, how to make jogless 2-round stripes when knitting in the round. The class project will be a pair of charming fingerless mitts as shown in the photo.

The class size will be small and the atmosphere will be relaxed and friendly. Learning new knitting techniques requires learning new motor skills, so be prepared to be gentle and patient with yourself as you learn, and be ready to ask for help when you need it.

Skill Level
This class is most appropriate for intermediate level knitters who are comfortable with knitting and purling as well as knitting in the round, and have completed several projects.
