Skill Level: Easy

A basket of blooms with (optional) butterflies awaits your favorite dishes. Knit a soft trivet to help protect the table or furnishings. Worked in mosaic garter stitch, just one strand of color works every two rows while the other strand rests at the edge. Gauge and dimensions are provided with a medium weight cotton. Choose colors that contrast well. Try your camera’s “black & white” setting to look at your yarns in gray-scale and check the contrast between your selection(s). The pattern provides full written instructions with (optional) positive and negative charts for making a useful trivet and gift!
