Mosaic Stitch Sunglasses Sleeve

How to Mosaic Knit a Sunglasses Sleeve | Pattern & Tutorial by Vickie Howell #Mosaicknitting

Mosaic Stitch Sunglasses Sleeve

This week on Ask Me Monday I show how to knit in color using the mosaic knitting method. Watch the replay of the video to see how easy it is to create intricate looking color work, without ever working with more than one color yarn at a time. Once you’ve got the gist of the technique, then take it for a spin by making the Mosaic Stitch Sunglasses Sleeve pattern below. Once you do, don’t forget to tag @vickiehowell with your finished project!
