The Huntsville pattern includes directions for making both the mosaic cowl and fingerless mitts with mosaic trim.

For mosaic knitting in the round, rounds are worked in pairs, two rounds using the same color. The first round work as indicated in the pattern. On the second round, using the same color, you purl the same sts you knit in the previous round, and slip the same sts you slipped. Choose two colors of yarn with lots of contrast for best results.
