Following my previous post about Sockapalooooza designs, I had some really helpful suggestions. And someone called “secretsockpal” (oooh! Is this my sockapaloooza partner?!) came up with the suggestion of a mosaic pattern from “Sensational Knitted Socks”. It took me a little while to realise that mosaic knitting is a whole new technique to explore – one I never knew existed! Using slipped stitches to create a two-colour pattern without producing a double-thickness fabric And apparently “More Sensational Knitted Socks” has lots more mosaic designs in it too – ooh! Has anyone out there knitted any of these designs? I tried Google and didn’t come up with much. The only caveat I have found so far is that the resulting socks might not be as stretchy as normal. What is your experience?
