This 3 hr workshop will introduce students to the magic of mosaic knitting. The easiest way to start working with 2 colors has to be mosaic knitting! Through the strategic use of slipped stitches, we will create intricate looking patterns while using only one color per row. No stranding or carrying a second color of yarn along the wrong side.
Class level: advanced beginner
Participants should know how to knit, purl, work in the round, cast on, bind off. Experience working with 2 colors is NOT necessary!
Students will learn the basics of mosaic knitting. We will look at garter and stockinette versions of mosaic patterns, work on understanding the concept by swatching a couple of patterns. We will also look at reading mosaic color charts (it’s super easy!) and then cast on one of the designs from Simone’s new mosaic colorwork collection ‘Karyai – classical beauty meets modern forms (patterns separate)
Pick a pattern from the list below to cast on during class, chose from cowl, boot topper, mitts, scarf, or shawl.
- smooth sport to worsted weight yarn in 2 colors for the swatches
- appropriate needles for swatch yarn
- sport weight yarn to cast on the chosen project, (depending on level knitter or size of project desired)
- General knitting notions (such as darning needle and scissors etc)
