Mosaic knitting is a quick-to-learn technique that will enable you to make beautiful, colorful knitted projects in no time.
This collection of techniques and knitting patterns for mosaic knitted homewares and accessories includes everything you need to get started with this exciting technique.

Mosaic knitting is a technique that creates beautiful colorwork but is less complicated than other knitting colorwork techniques, it also creates a softer fabric than stranded knitting and the finished knitted fabric maintains its stretchiness making it soft and flexible. Unlike other knitting colorwork techniques, mosaic knitting is beginner-friendly - if you can knit, purl, and slip a stitch you can make these projects. The patterns in this collection avoid any complicated shaping and are knitted flat to keep them as accessible and beginner friendly as possible.

Mosaic knitting patterns are essentially knitting stripes and slipping stitches in a pattern to create striking geometric motifs. With mosaic knitting you only work one color per row, so you don't have to worry about carrying floats of yarn as you do with stranded colorwork techniques.

Readers are led through the basics with step-by-step instructions and diagrams so that they can master the techniques before trying out their skills on 15 different projects. All of the patterns are accompanied by charts and there are instructions for how to follow the mosaic knitting charts, as well as how to read the written patterns, how to work in stockinette (stocking) stitch, and how to carry yarn up the side of your work.

There are step-by-step photographs showing how to work the stitches, as well as advice about choosing and changing colors. Each of the projects has an ability rating so you can build your skills on the easiest patterns before moving on to more challenging, but still accessible, projects.

This collection includes 15 projects with stunning geometric designs including wraps, shawls, and cowls as well as blankets, throws, and pillow covers. For each of the projects author, Ashleigh Wempe has designed an alternative colorway so you can see an example of how different color combinations work for each of the designs.
