FIBERSIDE CHAT Natasja Hornby 4/2/23

Stunning Mosaic Projects

Have you found yourself captivated by beautiful mosaic knitwear designs and are curious to learn more about how to create stunning mosaic projects for yourself? If so, you’re invited to join us in a fascinating Fiberside Chat with knitwear designer, Natasja Hornby, as she discusses her exploration of the mosaic knitting technique and provides hands-on instruction to help you create your own mosaic works of art.

During the presentation portion, Natasja will provide a brief history of mosaic knitting. With this background knowledge, we will see how Natasja uses shawls as her muse to explore the infinite mosaic possibilities, and expand upon the basics, to design what she fittingly refers to as her ‘Grand Mosaic Shawls’. The story behind her design inspiration will take us to the beautiful city of Marrakech (Morocco), with its rich heritage in colorful textiles. Finally, Natasja will share samples of her stunning Grand Mosaic Shawl designs and elaborate more on the practical side of things, like choosing yarn, colors and reading the mosaic charts.

If you’re the hands-on type, you are welcome to knit along with Natasja’s mosaic demonstration. In order to do so, you will need a few materials and to complete a small bit of knitting beforehand. The materials include: a light-colored and a dark-colored DK weight yarn - a few yards of each knitting needles in a size to match your chosen yarn. In order to get right into knitting the mosaic technique, a small knitting set-up will need to be done prior to the demonstration. With the light-colored yarn, CO 13 stitches and knit 3 rows. Once that is completed, you are ready for our knit along!

Natasja lives in Amsterdam and spends most of her non-knitting time on photography, visiting galleries, museums, and enjoying all of the cultural and culinary indulgences the amazing city of Amsterdam has to offer. Her work has been featured in Laine, Amirisu, Knit Now, and the Dutch crafting magazine, Handwerken zonder Grenzen. Visit the About page on Natasja's website to get to know her better at her website, Moonstruck Knits.
