Interweave Knits Magazine - Spring 2006 Yarn Requirements

Stitches I like

Linen Stitch and Half Linen Stitch

Scribble Lace

Mosaic Garter Stitch is a slipped stitch pattern stitch that uses 2 or more colors to achieve a color knitting effect without "carrying" the yarn.  It is easy to do and has a interesting "beaded" effect.  This site shows an example with 17 colors!  You carry the yarn up the side, twisting to keep it secure.

    

Mosaic Garter Stitch pattern called Crosspatch from a Knitty.com pattern in garter stitch. Based on Barbara Walker.   .
