This Adventures in Knitting pattern provides a map to learn a new technique while making your project! Each pattern provides the pattern instructions, charts, technique overview, technique “how-to,” tutorials, and “keys for success.” Print out the pattern double-sided and fold into thirds for optimal use.

Mosaic Knitting is a color-knitting technique which creates patterns in two colors, but only one color is worked per row while the other color is slipped. These mitts provide an opportunity to learn how to work the mosaic technique, make mosaic garter and stockinette patterns, and read mosaic charts.
