  • Lace i.e., decrease and open increase combos
  • Colorwork (2 or more colors, fair isle, stranded, intarsia, mosaic or slip stitch color work; stripes do not count) e.g., Fair-Isle, Mosaic, or Slip Stitch patterns
  • Traveling (decrease and increase stitch combos)
  • Unusual (Bobbles & Leaves & Entrelac - 3-D shapes on a knitted surface & anything else that doesn’t fit traditional categories)
