Mosaic & Lace Knits is an introduction to a technique that I have been developing over several years that brings colorwork into lace using slip stitches. Handling only one strand of yarn at a time, no carrying along the row or stranding, allows development of colorwork patterns without any floats running behind your work and obscuring your lace.

Using a big, soft yarn allows you to whip up this chic and graphic scarf in no time. A simple lozenge motif runs up the center between ladders of lace. Even with the holes, the alpaca will keep you nice and warm. I wanted to keep the yardage on this scarf to one skein of each color, but if you want a wider scarf you can easily use more yarn to double
the central repeat to have two columns of lozenges running the length of the scarf.
