My favourite kind of project? One that looks fabulous but knits up easily.

Knit on the bias, you’ll get maximum impact from a mini skein and a few garter ridges. There are 3 single stripes and 2 double stripes in the contrast colour, giving you a slightly different look on each side. Instructions are given for a three-needle bind off and for grafting so that you can choose the method you’re most comfortable with.

Easy to modify and make your own.

If you love this, you might also love the +1 Pop Collection - a set of 7 other patterns that also use 1 mini skein and 1 regular skein.
