This mitten pattern features mosaic knitting, possibly the easiest way to do color work. With no floats and no second yarn to carry, mosaic color work is as easy as knitting stripes! AND, it remains stretchy, making it ideal for small fitted projects like mittens and socks. Mosaic knitting creates strong, graphic color blocks using slipped stitches. Tessellated or interlocking patterns are common in mosaic knitting and impart bold, energetic visual movement to the fabric.

For “Tess”, I’ve paired a classic Greek key motif with a solid thumb, mitten cap and simple hemmed edge. To avoid interrupting the stitch pattern, Tess features an after-thought thumb, a clean, easy and extremely fast thumb treatment, with no gusset to knit. The fit is relaxed, the look is whimsical and the knit is, well…super fun! I hope you’ll enjoy Tess.
