Mastering Mosaics with Edie Eckman
Dramatic colorwork using only one color at a time, easy enough for beginners but intriguing to experienced knitters-what could be more appealing? Mosaic knitting does just that and more. It's forgiving of uneven tension, doesn't require exact stitch counts to match multiples, and allows you to go on auto-pilot every other row. Furthermore, you can switch up stitch patterns without affecting the gauge. The downside? Understanding this fascinating technique can be somewhat confusing at first glance. Banish that bewilderment as you learn to read mosaic charts, play with garter-stitch and stockinette-stitch variations, and maybe even get started designing your own mosaic patterns.
