Quarter 2 of Knit Pro is learning colorwork. We are kicking off Quarter 2 with learning Mosaic knitting with the Assookinanii Cowl. Mosaic knitting creates colorwork patterns using two colors in different rows and slipping stitches; you do not work both colors at the same time. It's a great way to add designs to your patten and to dip your toe into colorwork.
The Assookinakii cowl is knit in the round using 1 solid and 1 variegated skein of fingering weight yarn. The sample was made using Soka'pii and Dyed in the Wool. The columns are made just by slipping stitches. This is a 2 part class.
