Shiftalong is a mosaic hat designed by Andrea Mowry using two contrasting skeins of Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool. A fun riff on this mosaic technique that shows off Spincycle Yarns to their fullest advantage, with a small project you can complete in a weekend. A great holiday gift!
Mosaic knitting...is one of my favorite ways to play with combining colors, and is a simple technique for even newer knitters to try out! If you can slip sts, knit and purl - then you can do Mosaic knitting!
