The magic about this pattern is that the stripes are vertical on one side, and horizontal on the other! This slip stitch pattern may seem a bit fussy at first, but it is easily memorized after a few rows.

This makes a nice thick hotpad if worked in worsted weight cotton, but with wool and larger needles it is a striking and unique scarf! The scarf In the bottom two photos used #8 needles and 31 stitches for a scarf 4.75 inches wide. The yarn is Knitpicks Chroma Worsted.

I have also made this hot pad in wool, and then felted it (if you do it this way, be sure to add extra length before felting!).
