Okay I have B. Walker’s mosaic book from the library… and I’ve seen other resources… what I’m missing/not seeing about mosaic knitting is the back side of the work. I should probably just make up a large swatch to figure this out myself but I’m hopnig someone is already a mosaic-ist and can tell me…
Does the back of mosaic look essentially like stranding? I understand that you work two rows (one RS and one WS) of a piece with one color then do two rows of the second (vs. carrying both colors along in stranding). What I don’t understand, nor have a found a picture of, is what mosiac looks like on the back (WS) of the piece. Does the color passing the slipped stitches resemble stranding?
… and therefore, your patterns should only go X-few stitches without a color change otherwise you end up with large, untethered strand, right?
Am I on the right wave-length? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and guidance!
