Mosaic knitting is an easy and fun to knit colorwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one colour at a time. Slipped stitches is the easiest way to do colorwork and is a great introduction to using 2 colors. This garter stitch shawl is knit in a solid color from the smallest point and bias shaped through the two-color mosaic segment to create the fluid and body-draped fit of this unique shawl. From the Dos Tierras Collection, a wonderful pattern collection to showcase this brilliant, soft, and bouncy yarn.
