Deciphering Mosaic Knitting Charts

Deciphering mosaic knitting charts and 3 tips about slip stitch colorwork
Mosaic knitting  is possibly the easiest type of colorwork. I sometimes think of it as "cheater" colorwork. You can create very complicated looking designs but, unlike fair isle, you are only knitting with one color of yarn at a time.

Before You Begin

Mosaic knitting is also called slip stitch knitting. The designs are basically created by knitting in stripes and slipping a few strategically placed stitches. So, if you can knit stripes, you can do this.

The challenge some knitters face is deciphering the charts because there is more than one correct way to chart a mosaic pattern.
