Mosaic Knit Blanket
MOSAIC KNITTING is not Fair Isle or Stranded work, and depends solely on slipping stitches. You work with only ONE color of yarn at a time!! Each color is worked for 2 rows--a forward pass and a return row. They are both worked on the same stitches, but you slip with the yarn in different directions on the return pass. You can work both 'knit', and the effects will be different, but you will have to slip the stitches with yarn in front on all the slipped stitches, on the return row, which is harder. The effects that can be achieved are lovely! If you purl the return row, you just keep the yarn where it is.
Play with COLOR. Use a different solid color for each motif section, keeping the background the same. I'd love to see what you do!
Yarn usage: Color A (contrast purple) about 300 g
Yarn usage: Color B (main grey) about 500 g
Yarn usage will be dependent on your needle size and tension, and the relative 'weight' of the yarn.
