Discover Mosaic Knitting with the Pine Sweater – Knitting


Mosaic knitting is one in all my favourite sorts of colorwork. As an alternative of getting to hold and work with two completely different colours of yarn on the identical time, mosaic knitting lets you work with only one colour per spherical, slipping stitches to make the sample seem.

It’s an effective way to make a repeating graphic sample, and it’s very easy when you perceive the way it works.

You may play with this easy methodology of colorwork within the Pine Sweater sample from Lauren McElroy.

The sample makes use of cumbersome yarn and consists of colour patterning on the yoke and alongside the underside of the sweater. It makes use of cumbersome yarn and is labored within the spherical from the underside up. The underside sample seems like timber, whereas to high is easy diamond shapes.

On Ravelry the sample is described as utilizing mosaic knitting on the underside and slipped stitches on the high. What’s the distinction? Mosaic knitting is at all times labored with two rows or rounds in every colour, and the row or spherical is similar every time (as in, no matter stitches have been slipped on the primary row of the colour are slipped once more on the second row).

Then again, slip sew patterns can change from one spherical to the subsequent, and stitches could also be slipped in several methods (with the yarn to the entrance, for instance, which isn’t performed in mosaic knitting).

Take a look at this publish from Heather Storta that goes extra in-depth into the distinction between slip sew colorwork and mosaic knitting.

The sample is adjustable to completely different sizes and is appropriate for intermediate to superior knitters. You may obtain the sample from Ravelry.
