Terry's Mosaic Chevron Pattern
- I chose to use green and white for my dishcloth - what colors did you use?

hi fellow knitters -
  Here are your last day of rows!

I really hope that you have enjoyed this design - I thought it was a lovely cloth -
and you could adapt it to make an afghan even-*chevron patterns* are popular now - it could make for a nice little baby blanket.
 
Thank you so much to our designer, Terry Liann Morris ~you can find more of her designs at Ravelry, 
and at her own site, see the end of this pattern for that info.

  Let's not forget to keep Janet in our thoughts and prayers for recuperating - we all know that can often be harder on us than the surgery!  Take care, Janet - Get Well Soon, we are eager to see you back in our next KAL  : )
Thank you for letting me host this KAL -
I've enjoyed introducing Mosaic Knitting to some of our knitters ~ Linda  myknittingfavs.blogspot.com

APRIL 1st KAL  - Pattern
Hope you are ready, fellow knitters!  I am sending this out and posting it to my blog a bit early -
 as it is a rainy windy day here where I am - a perfect sit-inside-and-knit kind of day!!

Here are the how-to's to remind yourself again-
just take one row at a time - you will do fine!
Enjoy !   ps--drop a line and let me know what colors you chose to knit with !

                 Notes
You will be working with only one color at a time and either knitting or slipping the stitches.

All slipped stitches are worked as if to purl (purlwise).

 slip 1 wyif:  All slipped stitches on even (wrong side) rows are made by bringing the yarn to the front
(to the wrong side, which is facing you), slip the stitch, and take the yarn to the back
to knit the next stitch

Leave the yarn in back when slipping stitches on the right side rows.

 Slip the first stitch of each row as if to purl, then take the yarn to the back to knit the next stitch.

** This cloth is knit from the bottom up to the top  -

**2 colors needed: Color A [Dark], Color B [Light/pastel]

Abbrev:
RS – Right Side
WS – Wrong Side
wyif – with  yarn in front
slip 1 – slip 1 stitch, as if to purl [this is done at beginning of each row]

Day 1 –
*With color A cast on 36 sts.

*[with Color A] Knit one row

Row 1 (RS): join in color B, slip 1, k2, *slip 1, k1, slip 1, k3, (slip 1, k1) twice, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3
Row 2 (WS): [color B,] slip 1, k2, *(k1, slip 1 wyif) twice, k3, slip 1 wyif, k1, slip 1 wyif, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3

Row 4: [color A,] slip 1, k2, *k4, slip 1 wyif, k1, slip 1 wyif, k3, repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3

hi Fellow knitters -
  we begin our next KAL on Friday, 4/1 -
  Hope you have your 2 different skeins chosen.  Reminder:  two contrasting colors [one dark, one light works well]

I am going to tell you what we are knitting this time, just because it may be something some of you have not knit before - it is called Mosaic Knitting.
No, it is NOT difficult!  Taken one row at a time, using only one color at a time, it's fairly easy for even a beginner to learn.
Just read over these guidelines, don't worry about anything - it will all fall into place when we start knitting. 

   These are notes that the designer gave with the pattern, so I include them here for you now -- see you soon with your first day's rows! ~ Linda
Reminder:  Rows will be posted on my blog page -

APRIL 1st KAL   - Pattern   Notes
1. Mosaic designs are made by alternating two different colored yarns every other row.

2.You will be working with only ONE color at a time and either knitting or slipping the stitches. At the end
of a wrong side row, you will drop the old color and pick up the new color before beginning the next right side row.

2. All slipped stitches are worked as if to purl (purlwise).

3. slip 1 wyif:   All slipped stitches on even (wrong side) rows are made by bringing the yarn to the front
(to the wrong side, which is facing you), slip the stitch, and take the yarn to the back
to knit the next stitch

4. Leave the yarn in back when slipping stitches on the right side rows.

5. Slip the first stitch of each row as if to purl, then take the yarn to the back to knit the next stitch.

Note: This cloth is knit from the bottom up to the top  -

2 colors needed: Color A [Dark], Color B [Light/pastel]

hi fellow Knitters!
  In a few days it will be April....and we all know what that means! Yes!  A new month, a new KAL!

This will not be a lace cloth - and it won't be a picture cloth either -
but it is a *pattern* design.

Get ready with these supplies:
 - size 7 needles [or your preferred size for dishcloth patterns]
 - two skeins - yes, 2 ~ contrasting colors - for example, blue and white ... red and yellow ... ... you get the idea
 - this may be a *new* knit skill for some of you - and I will be letting you know some more of the particulars when we get close to the 1st of April

 For now, get your preferred colors ready - see you soon.

Have a Happy Easter!
~ Bunny Lassie ~
