Introduction to Knitting Mosaic Colorwork

Video Tutorial - Learn how to knit mosaic colorwork in the round
I love knitting mosaic colorwork, but it almost feels like cheating. The method creates intricate looking color patterns, but basically you are only knitting alternating colored stripes, one color at a time, for two rows or rounds each. Much of the design in mosaic colorwork is created by simply slipping stitches from your left needle to your right. It really can't get much easier than that.

Another benefit of mosaic colorwork is that you don't have many yarn tails to weave in at the end. Whether you are working in rows or rounds, your yarn can be carried up the edge or the back of your work.

Introduction to Knitting Mosaic Colorwork
Mosaic colorwork is the easiest way to create knit color patterns because only one yarn color is worked at a time.
