Mosaic Knitting is a term coined by Barbara Walker to describe slip stitch knitting using 2 colours. This simple, yet effective technique can be used to create stunning designs without having to work with more than 1 yarn at a time. This class will focus on how to read Mosaic patterns and how to use the technique. We will work on a series of patterns to make a”Sampler” that can be joined and made into a cowl, or continued into a scarf
