This lovely crescent shawl is worked in 3 colours in a mix of garter stitch and a beautiful mosaic motif that transitions from one colour to the next.
It‘s fun to knit and cosy to wear!

Mosaic knitting is an easy & fun to work colourwork technique that creates fascinating results. You only use one colour at a time and slip the other to create the eyecatching 2-colour motif.

The pattern provides fully written out row-by-row instructions as well as charts.

This pattern was created in collaboration with Shalimar Yarns and I had the pleasure to work with their gorgeous Paulie yarn for my sample.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!
