Artfully Agitated Stripes: An Introduction to Mosaic Knitting with Franklin Habit
At first glance, Mosaic Knitting looks like garden variety stranded color work–but it's not. Mosaic patterns are really two-row stripes, joggled here and there with slipped stitches. The result? Beautiful designs and intriguing fabrics in stockinette, garter stitch, and hybrids thereof. And amazingly–you'll never knit with more than one color in a row. Want to find out how it works, and how to design your own mosaic color patterns? Join us, and bring your imagination.

Supplies
Two balls of smooth (non-fuzzy), worsted-weight yarn (for example: Cascade 220, Universal Yarns Deluxe Worsted, or similar) in highly contrasting solid colorways; 1 circular needle (preferably 16-24 inches) in a size appropriate to give a comfortable, firm gauge (such as would be appropriate for a warm scarf or hat) in the yarns selected; notebook, pencils (not pens) and erasers for sketching and charting; two or more 8.5x11 sheets of graph paper ruled in squares at 4 squares/inch. (This paper is easily procured from shops or can be printed, free, at http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/square.html.)

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.
