Some more random mosaic knitting charts

Here are two more mosaic charts I doodled recently. (They aren’t made using my encoding method, so there’s no hidden meaning involved.) I couldn’t think of names for one of them based on appearances, so I just went with a family name.

I checked all of them at Scott Pakin’s mosaic charting webpage which has a feature that checks to make sure that a mosaic chart is actually possible.

I’m going to have to write up a thorough tutorial on mosaic knitting and how to read this specific kind of chart now that Twist Collective’s awesome website is gone. In the meantime, here’s the closest thing I can find right now. (The isolated column to the right in my charts indicates what color is being used in a given row, like the first column in the charts on that page.)

An added benefit to finding that page is learning that the same charts can be used for mosaic crochet, which I didn’t know was a thing!


  • These are stitch patterns such as might be found in a stitch dictionary. These are not patterns for a finished object.
  • The non-slipped stitches in the second row of each stripe may be either knit or purled, as desired.
  • Before starting any of these instructions, knit two plain rows in Color B, represented by the white squares on the charts.
  • Designers, please feel free to use these in your patterns. I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
