This large & cozy rectangular wrap features an intriguing interplay of two colors worked in garter stripes and an eye-catching beautiful mosaic motif.

Mosaic knitting is an easy colorwork 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 fun and engaging knit, resulting in a cozy item to highlight your daily wardrobe.

The pattern comes with both written and charted instructions so you can choose whichever you prefer.
