Note: This is a two-session class.
Time: Wednesdays, February 26 and March 4 from 5-7 pm
Level: Advanced Beginner
Curious about colorwork but intimidated by knitting with more than one strand of yarn? Mosaic knitting is like stranded colorwork, but without the stranding: knit using only one color at a time and slip stitches to create a colorful, textured fabric. There are two project possibilities, both knitted flat: Nightshift is a worsted-weight triangular shawl knitted with an applied i-cord edging; The Shift is a sport-weight cowl worked using three colors, a little bias shaping, and seamed along two edges to finish.
- Nightshift: 800 yards worsted weight yarn. Recommended: two balls of Noro Ito in two different colorways, or one ball of Noro Ito and 400-450 yards of solid or semi-solid worsted weight wool yarn
- The Shift: 450 yards sport weight yarn. Recommended: three colors of Schoppel-Wolle Edition 3, or three balls of Edition 3 in a single color
- Nightshift: 32″ circular needle in US 8 (if you are a tight knitter, a US 9 is recommended)
- The Shift: 32″ circular needle in US 5
- Misc.: scissors and a tapestry needle
Pre-Requisite Skills: casting on, knit, purl, and binding off
