Day 267 and Linkies
I love mosaic knitting! I love being able to make colorwork without actually holding two strands of yarn at once or even three or more!
This was a simple one and the slip stitches were carried up three rows causing a little bit of a pucker making each little chain look a little more chainlike.
Here's the basic recipe:
2 rows stockinette color A
2 rows garter stitch color B
*1 row knit 6, slip 2 with yarn in back,* repeat and end with knit 6 color A
*1 row purl 6, slip 2 with yarn in front, * repeat and end with purl 6 color A
*1 row knit 6, slip 2 with yarn in front, * repeat and end with knit 6 color B
1 row garter stitch color B
I liked it best knit a little bit loosely and only used 2 colors here, but it would look amazing changing color B so all of your chains are different.
