As the name of this sweater suggests, the colorwork is not what it may seem at a first glance. Mosaic stitch is essentially a slip-stitch knitting that looks like stranded knitting – but is easier to execute, since only one color is used in any given round. The mock V-neck is knitted in the same stripe sequence as the body and therefore is worked simultaneously with it. Slipped stitches on either side of the V help to embed the simple stripe into the patterned body and bring the two together.
