Mosaic Knitting
 
  Exotic, intricate designs with no bobbins, tails, or hassles.  An amazing technique created by Barbara Walker.  Only one color yarn per row and easy tension to keep to gauge.
 
  Once you've mastered this technique you can do a whole garment or be satisfied with just pockets or cuffs to adorn a plain sweater.  Options are endless.
