Mosaic Checkered Knit Stitch

Ask Me Monday: Checkered

Checkered Mosaic Knit Stitch

This week on Ask Me Monday I was joined by illustrator, designer and YarnYAY!’s Maker Assistant, Becky Joiner. We chatted about her design for our latest YarnYAY! Kit, the Dottie Vest, including how to measure yourself and how ease works. Then Becky showed how easy colorwork can be with Checkered Mosaic knit stitch. Watch, swatch, and go!
