Mastering Mosaic Knitting
1 day workshop with Charles Gandy
Mosaic knitting is an easy and fascinating way to do two-color work without stranding. In this fun filled workshop we will learn how to read mosaic charts and make them come to life. We will discuss when to slip and when to knit or purl. If you like simple work that looks complicated but is so much fun to work, than this is the class for you.
Please bring the following:
We will use the suggested supplies to make small swatches and study the technique. IF folks would like to begin the scarf they should bring two skeins of highly contrasting colors. Charles used a nice Alpaca blend to make the sample in the photo.
- At least 50 yards neutral WORSTED weight yarn. (white!?)
- At least 50 yards of a HIGHLY contrasting color yarn (black!?)
- Appropriate Needles : Size 6, 7, or 8
- Tapestry needle
- Tape measure
- Row counter
- Stitch markers
