Mosaic Tile Scarf

Abbreviations:  BO- bind off; CO- cast on; k- knit; p- purl; rep- repeat; st(s) - stitches; x- times; wyif- with yarn in front



Mosaic Knitting uses 2 colors, but only one color is used at a time for two consecutive rows.  The pattern is worked by reading the first row of the chart from right to left, knitting the sts of the working yarn and slipping the stitches of the resting yarn.  The last 3 sts of every row are slipped with yarn in front, thus creating the I-cord edge.


Row 2 is worked not by working from the chart, but by knitting the sts of the working yarn and slipping the other stitches purlwise, with yarn in front.     On the wrong-side rows the last 3 slipped stitches from the right-side row are knitted with the working color.


As an example, the first two rows are worked as follows:

Row 1With Mochi Plus, K4, sl 1, K3, sl 1 (K1, sl 1) 3 times, K3, sl 1, K3, sl 1 (K1, sl 1) 3 times, K3,             sl 1, K1, sl 3 wyif.

Row 2Continuing with Mochi Plus, K the first 3 slipped sts and all Mochi sts, sl all CC sts with    yarn in front.  Slip the last 3 sts wyif.


The 3rd and 4th rows are worked with the Allegro DK, knitting the light stitches on the chart and slipping the Mochi Plus stitches. The arrows designate slipped sts at end of rows.
