Knit Mosaic Chevron Stitch

Ask Me Monday: Knit Mosaic Chevron Stitch

Knit Mosaic Chevron Stitch

This week on Ask Me Monday, I show my favorite type of knit color work, mosaic knitting. For this tutorial, we’ll focus on the knit Mosaic Chevron Stitch, as called for in both my Zags Cowl and Vampire Teeth Scarf. The skills taught, however, will give you a good primer for how most mosaic stitch patterns work. Have fun!
