Mosaic Mug Rugs

mug rug
Have you been intrigued by the beautiful knit Pressed Flowers and The Shift Cowl patterns? Both are worked with mosaic, or slip stitch, colour techniques! In this 3-hour introduction, we’ll try a couple of different mosaic styles and give you the experience you need to jump right into those beautiful patterns. Your swatches can be used as mug coasters! (Optional – for thicker coasters, you can sew on a piece of wool felt as backing - I'm using pieces of a felted wool sweater). I’ll also demonstrate the Chain Cast-on, which results in a cast on edge that matches the standard bind off.
