Sandstone is a lovely cowl with snug fit and pretty colourwork.

Knitted in the round from the bottom up, Sandstone features simple lace and an easy mosaic pattern. It’s a quick knit with worsted weight yarn, and a wonderful project for trying out mosaic knitting.

Mosaic knitting is a simple technique where only one colour is worked on each row and the colourwork is created with slipped stitches. If you can do stripes, you can do mosaic knitting. This project is also a fun way to play with colour combinations. Choose subtle, natural shades like used in the sample, or have fun with happy and bright colours.
