Here comes a fairy tale charming (if spooky) spider accent for the kitchen and bath. Use up small amounts of yarn to make a useful potholder or cleaning cloth.

Mosaic garter stitch involves garter (knit) and slipped stitches using one strand of yarn for two rows at a time (switching color strands every two rows). If you can knit stripes and slip stitches it will be easy.

Gauge and dimensions are provided in worsted weight cotton with size US 7 (4.5mm) needles. Adjust the needle size and/or yarn weight to obtain desired gauge.

Use contrasting solid colors or try semi-solid tonal yarn for one of the colors. As long as the contrasting and main colors contrast well, the pattern will reveal itself. The pattern includes written instructions with (optional) charts for making useful household linens and gifts!
