Design Your Own Mosaic Shawl. A Workshop with Melanie Berg at This is Knit in Dublin on 8 April 2017

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.
