Color, Tips & Techniques
Mosaic knitting is one of the easiest way to include complex-looking colorwork into your knitted projects. Through the use of slipped stitches, mosaic knitting is perfect for beginners who are attempting colorwork for the first time. If you’ve worked stripes in two colors, you can work mosaic knitting. This class will cover the characteristics of mosaic knitting, how to choose yarn for your mosaic project, reading mosaic charts, how to correct your errors, and will look at creating your own mosaic design. We will work on a mini project to absorb the technique, and Ambah will share some of her favorite mosaic projects. Class notes include a code to download one of Ambah's mosaic shawl designs to tackle next.
