Amazing Gryffindor Bag

EE KCAL Project

I am making nice progress on my Swap Bag, in between socks of course. I love this slip stitch motif knitting technique. It looks like the more complicated stranded colorwork or intarsia knitting, but is just a simple slipping of stitches of one color in the row.

Hmm, I would like to learn this. What is this technique called. It looks lovely.

Slip Stich Motif or Mosaic knitting, you can look at the original pattern to get the basics.

I also found a book of motifs that uses this technique.
