Mosaic & Lace Knits

20 Innovative Patterns Combining Slip-Stitch Colorwork and Lace Techniques

Barbara Benson

Paperback
Combine mosaic and lace in your knitting for easy colorwork with impeccable style.

The impact of two-color knitting made while knitting with only one color yarn per row--yes, please! Add in a dash of lace to keep the fabric flexible, and what you end up with are knockout colorful knits with beautiful and comfortable drape.

Barbara Benson has been experimenting with the fusion of mosaic knitting and lace stitches over the past few years, and has created this breathtaking collection of 20 shawls, cowls, scarves, hats, and other accessories. To make the patterns accessible to any knitter, she has added a helpful instructional section that covers the basics of knitting slip stitches, how to read lace and mosaic charts, how to work mosaic in the round, and tips and tricks to help you avoid potential pitfalls.

The book has projects for all level knitters. Start with a project in which the mosaic and lace are worked in different sections, such as a hat with alternating bands of mosaic and lace. Then progress to more complex patterns where the slip stitch and lace stitches are worked at the same time. Each stitch plays an important role--these patterns will keep the interest of even the most experienced knitter!

Mosaic &Lace Knits is not just a collection of beautiful and wearable
designs. This book is full of newly developed slip-stitch patterns that
merge lace with mosaic slip-stitch techniques in a very clever and precise
way. I am a huge fan of Barbara’s designs.
