When you look at the beautiful lace that you have knitted don’t you always think, “The thing that would make this even better is color-work”? Well, perhaps it was just me, and I did, and then I set about figuring out how to combine colorwork and lace. The solution I discovered was using the slip stitch techniques of mosaic colorwork knitting. Mosaic creates colorwork by knitting stripes and slipping stitches. There is no carrying of yarn across a row, so there are no floats to get in the way of your beautiful lace. This class will cover the techniques that I have developed over the course of the last few years to make the lace and color play nice with one another. This class will give you all of the tools you need to confidently cast on for one of my mosaic lace patterns and is best for confident knitters who pick things up quickly. If you prefer a more leisurely style, check out the longer Mosaic and Beyond class.
