Afternoon In Lisbon Knitting Pattern by Lisa Hannes
This large and cosy rectangular wrap features an intriguing interplay of two colours worked in garter stripes and an eye-catching beautiful mosaic motif.
Mosaic knitting is an easy colourwork technique that uses slipped stitches and only one color at a time, which makes for fun knitting and striking results.
Different alternating sections with three mosaic parts make this pattern a fun and engaging knit, resulting in a cosy item to highlight your daily wardrobe.
The pattern comes with fully written and charted instructions so you can choose which you prefer to work from.
