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.
