I named this pattern Oscilla as the rhythmic slipstitch repeat is like a slow wave or oscillation as you work each round. This is an easy to follow pattern, using only one yarn at a time.

Slipstitch (also known as Mosaic Knitting) is when you only work certain stitches on each row or round, then with your second color, work those same slipped stitches on the following round. This gives a Fair Isle look without having to worry about tension, still creating a warm and lofty piece.

I chose to work Oscilla in six of our Minikins in coordinating, but contrasting, colors. Optionally, you could pick just two colors to show the full, unbroken gradients!
