Cast on a few stitches and work in a soothing texture pattern for a while and then move on to simple slipped stitch mosaic style colorwork with a poppy contrasting color. With mosaic colorwork you are knitting stripes and slipping stitches, never working with more than one yarn on a row. It feels almost like cheating! Once you’ve worked your way through your first base color you continue with your POP color and switch to a lighter shade of your base to create a 2 color gradient effect running behind the colorwork. The finish is more soothing texture in the lighter color. With some stripes, a few slipped stitches, and easy texture you create something that makes you look like you can work magic!
