KISS…keeping it so simple.

I love simplicity.
Simple stitches,clean lines and effective colour contrast all add up to an elegant finish. The seed stitch borders add texture to the design and keep the look classic and modern all at the same time.

This pattern is written out in full row-by-row and does not use charts.

I have made a second sample in purple and grey,using Patons Shetland Chunky please read for small instruction change because of Patons yardage.

The instructions are all written, not charted and are a simple repeat of two rows of mosaic. Only one colour is knit in each row, super simple. The stitches themselves are surprisingly basic considering how striking the finished effect is.

This is a fun and quick knit and if you are new to the mosaic style it is a great project to start with.

Here is an excellent YouTube video all about Mosaic Stitches.

Fair warning…this is addictive!
