Mosaic inspired designs

I am currently finding a huge amount of pattern inspiration in the Cosmatesque mosaic floors of Italian churches! I’m currently producing the patterns for two designs – the first one is a cowl based on the diamond patterns of a floor in Torcello, Venice, and the second one is a pair of fingerless mitts inspired by a floor design in St Mark’s Basilica, Venice. The mitts use Tukuwool fingering from Finland, which I saw for the first time at Edinburgh Yarn Festival.
