Practice Mosaic Knitting with the Lyre Beanie – Knitting

One of the knitting skills I’d like to use more of in the new year is mosaic knitting. It’s not difficult, in fact, it’s one of the easier colorwork knitting methods because it’s done just by slipping stitches — you never have to work with two colors in the same row.

But it’s not a technique I’ve used a lot and I want to change that.

A great starter project would be the Lyre Beanie by Lanre Ojikutu. This two-color design has a sort of stairstep zigzag pattern, and it’s worked in the round using worsted weight yarn. There are two sizes available, for teens and adults.
