Learn to make striking color patterns in your knitting while working only one color per row. Mosaic knitting is incredibly popular right now, and with good reason. It is simple to learn, but once you’ve mastered the concept, the possibilities for play are limitless. We’ll cover mosaic knitting both flat and in the round, and talk about incorporating textural patterns, yarn management, and color planning. You will work on several different swatches and leave this class with the skills and inspiration to tackle any mosaic pattern or to design your own!
Participants should provide worsted-weight yarn in 2 contrasting colors, wound off into 2 balls of each color that are at least 20 yards long; both straight needles and double-pointed or two circular needles (for working a small circumference in the round) in an appropriate size (US 7–9); scissors; and stitch markers.
Homework: Before class begins, with darker color, cast 30 stitches on to your straight needles. Knit two rows in garter stitch (knit every row).
