Mastering Mosaics

Thanks for taking Mastering Mosaics! I hope you now feel confident enough to take on any mosaic knitting project, and excited to explore the possibilities.


Barbara G. Walker “unvented” the slip-stitch technique she coined “mosaic knitting”.


Her book Mosaic Knitting is chock-full of mosaic patterns.

Three of her other Treasuries of Knitting Patterns have chapters with mosaic patterns. The Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns contains text instructions only, while the Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns and A Fourth Treasury of Knitting Patterns contain charts only.

Stitches Midwest 2016: The Tribal Jacket designed by Katharine Hunt is in Knitter’s Fall 2013. You can see it on Ravelry.

Stitches Midwest 2016 and Stitches West 2016: I’ve corrected the Trees chart on page 2 of the handout (and I’ve corrected the handout for the next time I teach the class).

The yarn I used for the placemats was Cascade Ultra Pima, and the Trees swatch was worked in Plymouth Cleo.
