Common Questions about Mosaic Knitting Patterns
Mosaic knitting is slip-stitch colorwork (slip-stitch knitting), using a combination of colors in a slip-stitch pattern to avoid floating on the back of the knitting project. You can use this knitting technique with garter stitch or stockinette stitch and achieve stunning results much easier than the other colorwork methods.
Since you are slipping stitches to achieve your colorwork you won’t end up with floats along the back, so this type of knitting lends itself well to almost any type of project but is especially wonderful for a baby blanket or scarf, shawl, and socks.
Not at all! It may take a little practice to get the hang of this technique, but most patterns have a mosaic knitting chart to follow so you can keep up with your colorwork rows, and don’t end up with long floats on the back of your project!
