The Italian Job is a two-color mosaic and Garter stitch asymmetrical triangle shawl. Two-color Mosaic patterns are created with slipped stitches and by alternating colors every two rows. Stitches that are slipped on the first (RS) row are slipped again on the following (WS) row.

This mosaic pattern was adapted from Barbara G. Walker’s “Greek Cross Medallion” in her Second Treasury of Knitting patterns and is presented in both written and chart form. Use whichever is the most accessible.

The Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors yarns have a lovely firm ply and come in a beautiful array of colors. Pick two colors that will contrast so the tile patterns will pop.

Gauge: 24 sts and 54 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Garter stitch.
