practice makes perfect
Just as cursive is a mystery to those who have yet to master it, color work seems daunting to knitters who have yet to give it a try. In reality this stitch pattern is created one color at a time using slipped stitches and mosaic knitting techniques to make it appear more complicated than it really is.
You will need to know how to read knitting charts, or be willing to attempt them, as the stitch pattern is not written out line by line.
