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.

The book is currently available for pre-order through Amazon and should be hitting your favorite local yarn or book store on March 31st!

The variegation in this yarn when combined with the superb stitch definition called for a simple mosaic pattern to show off the yarn off to its best. The simple lace pattern runs up the side of the mitt so that when you put it on it is slightly offset on the back of your hand, keeping the lace off of the palm where it might snag.

If you would like to see these mitts in action you can check out the video patter tour on my YouTube channel Watch Barbara Knit.
