This cloth depicts an apple worked in mosaic garter stitch. The original pattern has been revised (2013) with an option to vary the apple shape, round or tall, by adjusting a pattern repeat.

The pattern specifies worsted weight cotton yarn with US7/4.5mm needles but other yarns/weights/needle sizes are worth trying; the pattern is a great stash-buster for leftover yarns. I also recommend DK weight Hemp for Knitting AllHemp6/AllHemp6Lux using US6/4mm needles. Hemp is wonderfully slow to take on bacterial odors in the kitchen and bath and can go into the washer and dryer. Wool makes marvelous hot pads/potholders and could be used for felting project(s).

Mosaic knitting involves alternating strands of working yarn; just one strand is worked for two rows at a time. Garter and slipped stitches define the background and motif areas. If you can knit stripes and slip stitches, you can knit mosaic stitch.

Follow the written-pattern or the mosaic-knitting chart (or use one to cross-reference the other).
