This incredibly soft knitted cowl is akin to that found in my first Soooo Soft Knitted cowls post. These cowls are so much more convenient than a scarf (no dangly bits!). Just pull over head and get warm!
Once upon a time, it was a corn sheaf jumper. But this latest creation is a variation on that: corn sheaf & flowers knitted jumper.
Mosaic Crochet vs Mosaic Knitting: I have already talked about Mosaic Knitting Basics and then, What is Mosaic Crochet? (or what it isn’t). So before I move on to talk about how to mosaic crochet, let’s have a quick look at the differences between Mosaic Knitting and Mosaic Crochet.
This is the Barbara Walker Mosaic Knitting Chart I worked off.
How to read those intriguing mosaic knitting charts? Well I am going to use this chart (by Barbara Walker, who coined the term Mosaic Knitting) as our working example. And I will be going step-by-step, very slowly. Once you get it, all the mosaic knitting charts will be a breeze.
Mosaic Knitting Basics. I am beginning a new journey into Mosaic Knitting. (Mosaic Knitting is also known as slip-stitch knitting.)

Sidenote: Mosaic Knitting is also known as slip-stitch knitting.
I have spent hours graphing out knitting patterns manually (urgh!). Now I believe I have found a simple way to chart knitting patterns digitally (yay!).
Before I was intimidated by grahped knitting patterns. But after a bit of practice, I am pleased but not surprised, at how much faster and easier having visual graphs are to wordy text.
I am trialing using knitting fonts. The details of where, what, and how to are over at my technical site: Free Knitting Fonts for Mac & Windows.
Hopefully, I will be able to output some digital chart knitting patterns soon. Stay tuned!
