In 2018 I hosted a fun KAL challenge over the 4 day holiday weekend with my basic brioche hat Harlow. For 2019 I thought it would be fun to host another challenge with a new technique to learn - Mosaic knitting! This is one of my favorite ways to play with combining colors, and is a simple technique for even newer knitters to try out! If you can slip sts, knit and purl - then you can do Mosaic knitting!
