The latest project from the Spincycle Yarns team uses a technique we know many of you are curious about: Mosaic Knitting. Where with fair isle knitting you are juggling 2 or more colors per row, the genius of Mosaic Knitting is that it uses slipped stitches to create the colorwork effect. These elongated stitches join together over the motif to give the appearance of stranded knitting, with the ease of using a single color per row. (note: the ribbing here is still worked in fair isle). This style of knitting was brought to popularity and dubbed Mosaic Knitting by Barbara Walker, and is implemented beautifully in the Issa Cowl from Spincycle.
Issa is the perfect project to start building up your gift knits as well as your skill set. Learn a simple new technique, and enjoy every inch of working with the phenominal Dyed in the Wool from Spincycle Yarns.
