Abstract Mosaic Knitting Pattern

For this pattern, you’ll need needles of your choice of size and two different colors of yarn.

This is the actual abbreviated pattern, for people who have no problems reading them. For beginners, I will explain how to do it more in depth below.

Cast on, Color A, Multiples of 8 + 3, Pearl one row.

Row 1: Color B- K1 *K2, SL 3, K3; rep from *. End K2.

Row 2 and all even rows: P all K, SL all SL from prev. row

Row 3: Color A- K1 *K1, SL 1, K5, SL 1; rep from *. End K2.

Row 5: Color B- K1 *SL 1, K3, SL 1, K3; rep from *. End K1.

Row 7: Color A- K1 *K3, SL 1, K1, SL 1, K2; rep from*. End K2.

Row 9: Color B- K1*SL 1, K5, SL 2; rep from *. End SL 1, K1.

Row 11: Color A- K1*K1, SL 1, K1, SL 1, K4; rep from *. End K2.

Row 13: Color B- K1*K2, SL 1, K3, SL 1, K1; rep from*. End K2.

Row 15: Color A- K1*K5, SL 1, K1, SL 1; rep from *. End K2.

Use Color A (This will be the color that shows a little more) to cast on in multiples of eight. I decided to make a scarf specifically to demonstrate in this hub, and I cast on 40 stitches. I’m going to upload photos of what each row should look like as s you progress on the pattern.

Add three more stitches and purl one row using Color A. I ended up with 43 stitches.

My Color A was Black and Color B was White, but I switched them later on in the scarf for a little while.
