Sometimes a project just screams to be made and that was what happened with Silver Dusk. I’d been dying to try out mosaic knitting and when these two yarns came along they just happened to be perfect! This is a simple mosaic pattern easy enough for beginners and engaging enough for the seasoned mosaic knitter. As a knit-in-the-round, mobius cowl, all the floats are hidden inside--and the floats are never more than one stitch long so tension won’t be an issue! The pattern was so fast and fun to whip up. I had a blast and I hope you will too!
