Using A Chart
Rebekah Yeager's free Ravelry pattern, Turkish Tiles, a slip stitch dishcloth.... is very comprehensive. It has full written instructions as well as a few charts. I followed the written instructions when I made the two dishcloths shown in the previous post. But now that I have the hang of mosaic knitting and slipping stitches to create a pattern, I wanted to try using a chart. Thumbs up, I think I have it. I'm not sure if I'll make a cushion cover or a small blanket, it depends how far the yarn goes. The brown is left over from my Alice in Wonderland cardigan. The cream is a rather horrid mohair/cotton mix yarn that I was given. I'm a great fan of mohair, I used to have a spinning business spinning mohair, so I know that there are different qualities of mohair and this is not the best. But it's fine for practising a new technique.
