Dive in to this totally tubular herringbone creation from Andrea Mowry in luxurious Road to China Light.
Across the Pond
by Andrea Mowry
... I knew I wanted to create a mash up using two different techniques, and that at least one of the techniques involved colorwork... A cowl is the perfect canvas for trying out some new techniques, and mosaic knitting is a favorite of mine! My love for knitting drew me to the graphic herringbone stitch pattern you see in “Across the Pond.” I love that it looks like big knit stitches! Mosaic knitting is also an awesome introduction to colorwork, as you are only ever dealing with one strand of yarn at a time. I also really love eyelets, and add them into patterns whenever I can! I found that the angles of the mosaic pattern balance out the round polka dots of the eyelets. The resulting cowl is so easy to wear. I love to thrown it on with jeans and a t-shirt, or dressed up with my favorite jacket. I hope you love it, too!!
