Cascading colours of simple mosaic stitches and a blending of softly flowing stripes all combine to give a touch of classic elegance and fun all at the same time.

Mosaic stitches are knit one colour per row and are as simple as knitting one stitch and slipping the other. If you are new to mosaic style knitting this is a great pattern to start with. There are no charts to follow because each row is clearly written and simple to remember (and because I myself prefer following written instruction over charts).
Here is an excellent YouTube video about Mosaic Stitch knitting

The mock cables in the border are knit by slipping a stitch instead of working with cable needles, so much simpler! The pattern clearly explains how to create the mock cables which makes it great if it’s your first attempt knitting them.

Making mock cables:
Mock Cable: MC3
Mock cables are made by following these four steps.
1.Slip the first stitch knitwise (as if to knit) with yarn at the back.
2.Knit the second stitch.
3.Bring the yarn forward between the needles as if to purl and then hold it over the right hand needle. Knit the third stitch. (this creates a stitch).
4.Pass the slipped stitch over the two knit stitches and the yarn that was held over.

The look is intricate and detailed but the methods are simple. Just don’t tell anyone how truly easy they are, let them be impressed.

Add some interesting closures to wrap it up and to keep it where it needs to be….beautifully settled on your shoulders.

Be prepared for compliments!
