   Mosaic Knit & Crochet CAL - Q1 2021
   Rewards: Up to 1500 yards and 5 stars

Craft-A-Long Details:

  • Pattern Choices: Your choice of any knit or crochet pattern that utilizes mosaic colorwork.
  • CAL Dates: Jan. 1 - Mar. 31st

This is a multi-pattern craft-a-long that starts on January 1st, 2021 and runs through March 31st. Choose any knit or crochet pattern that uses mosaic colorwork for your project. Mosaic colorwork, also known as slip stitch colorwork, is a magical technique where you only work with one color at a time using slipped stitches to create an effect that is far more complex than the actual knitting or crocheting. In crochet, the technique also requires the use of a special stitch called mosaic treble, which we encourage you to experiment with as you expand your crafting repertoire with us this season!

While all mosaic is slip-stitch colorwork, not all slip-stitch colorwork is mosaic. There are several other forms of slip-stitch colorwork which are not considered mosaic, such as slip-stitch cables, lattice work, or methods used to reduce stranded colorwork to fewer colors per round which are still fundamentally stranded/fair isle patterns.

You can use any mosaic knit or crochet pattern for this craft-a-long, but due to the volume of requests for custom approvals, we will be unable to individually approve every participants' patterns, so if you are still unsure whether or not a pattern utilizes mosaic or not, please select a pattern from this bundle of pre-screened mosaic patterns.

This craft-a-long officially begins on the first of January. First, choose your pattern! Pick your yarn, maybe even get ambitious and do a swatch (while earning your Swatchbuckler badge!), and cast-on with your fellow ESKers in the Ravelry thread. When your project is done, head to your Progress Dashboard to submit your project and get your yardage and stars. Our goal is to have as many of you as possible finish your projects within the timeframe of the craft-a-long (truly crafting "along"), but we'll accept submissions for all 2021 craft-a-longs all the way up through December 25th to allow maximum participation.

Prizes: All 2021 CALs have six size options to allow everyone to play. You'll earn more yardage and stars the larger your project is. You can combine as many projects as you'd like - just wait to submit until all your projects for the CAL are done.

Requirements for ALL craft-a-longs:

  • All yarn should come from Eat.Sleep.Knit except for minor embellishments
  • All projects should start on or after the start date for the craft-a-long and be completed and submitted by December 25th, 2021
  • All projects should use the patterns or themes specified by the individual craft-a-long requirements
  • All projects completed within the craft-a-long calendar timeframe will be eligible for the Ravelry prize drawings for that craft-a-long.
