This shawl is all about slip-stitch and mosaic knitting. It combines garter stitch with some fun-to-knit colourwork elements.
Mosaic knitting creates beautiful graphic 2-colour patterns that look stunning and complex but are created by using only one colour at a time and slipping stitches. So it’s easy to knit while creating fascinating results - one of my favourite colourwork techniques!

The pattern is fun; it is playful and addictive. Due to different sections, it knits up quickly and will make a wonderful, easy-to-wear accessory to highlight your daily winter wardrobe.

This pattern was originally released as a Mystery-KAL. It is now available as one single pdf, but still in the original format with the different clues.

The pattern contains fully written and charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.
