Magical Mosaics with Ginger Luters
Mosaic knitting is a special form of slip stitch knitting, a fun and easy way to introduce color and geometric pattern into your knitting. Although the finished patterns often look complicated, the technique is fairly simple, using only one color in any one row. We’ll knit some maze-like patterns and then consider ways in which we can vary these patterns, both by changing the charts and by playing with color.
Two (or more) yarns, one light and one dark (strong contrast is important here). These should be smooth DK or worsted weight yarns. Needles should be one or two sizes larger than you would normally use for this weight yarn.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
