This Three and One Tweed Mosaic pattern is a classic slip-stitch pattern worked in two colors.
In fact, this particular slip-stitch pattern uses a garter-stitch based mosaic structure. That means that there are no purl stitches – good news for anyone who does not like purling!
What is more, the pattern repeat is only over 4 rows, making this a very easy pattern to master and memorize.
As with all mosaic patterns, you only use one color for each pair of rows you knit. However, you use slipped stitches to create vertical columns of color.
Actually, this is achieved as the slipped stitches pull stitches of contrasting color up.
Furthermore, mosaic patterns work best when working with colors that are quite contrasting, as they will make your pattern pop more.
