Description

Mosaic knitting, a relatively new form of two-color knitting, has become popular because it is easier for the knitter than most traditional forms of color work. The price of this ease is an unusual set of restrictions on color placement for the pattern designer. Carolyn Yackel and I have researched the impact of these constraints on the symmetries of knitting patterns, culminating in a classification of the color-swapping symmetry groups possible in mosaic knitting.
