Mosaic Shawls WorkshopAvailable until Fri 7 Apr 2017 9am
Have you avoided the mosaic technique so far because it looks so unbelievably complicated? But it isn't! With this amazingly versatile technique, you can easily combine two colours for a stunning result.
In this workshop, you'll design your own top-down triangle shawl that uses the mosaic technique. You will create an original mosaic pattern and Melanie will walk you through all the necessary steps, from casting on, over fitting your pattern into a triangular shape, to finally binding off.
Of course you will also be knitting, and although the timeframe isn't big enough for knitting an entire shawl, you'll be ready to do so once you've completed the course.
Melanie Berg is an independent knitwear designer, who has had patterns featured in publications by Amirisu, knit.wear and Malabrigo Yarns.
Melanie combines texture and color into wearable modern designs that are both playful and beautiful. She designs to surprise — from matching cheeky stripes with elegant lace, to choosing unexpected color combinations.
