I love the look of mitered squares, but find knitting each square a bit tedious; the stopping and starting makes it hard for me to get into a groove. This mosaic design creates a mitered square appearance without all the work. This scarf is knit using slipped stitches – an easy technique that creates textured, two-color results while knitting with only one color at a time. If you can knit a garter stitch scarf, you can knit this scarf. A chart is necessary for the colorwork pattern, but don’t let this stop you from knittnig this scarf. It really is an easy technique.

Skills: Cast on, knit, slip stitches purlwise, bind off.

Size: 7” wide X 72” long.

Of course you have the right to do what you wish with the finished object. But posting projects is always appreciated.
