Knit a mosaic masterpiece in two colors of Quarry for style you can take to the city or the country. This striking coat is worked flat in one piece to the underarms, with increases forming slanted fronts that fasten with a single large closure. The sleeves are also knit flat, and the double-ribbed bands and dramatic collar are worked on stitches picked up from the body once seaming is complete. Mosaic knitting uses only one color per row, slipping the stitches that will appear to form the foreground, so it doesn’t create as thick and dense a fabric as stranded colorwork would. Choose two shades with high contrast—we used Slate and Moonstone—to make the most of Lander’s graphic geometry, or try a subtly shifting combination like Alabaster and Gypsum.
