The Slip-Stitch-Scarf is an easy beginner’s pattern that produces a stunning scarf. The pattern immitates classic woven/checkered structures with its two colours. But don’t be intimidated: you only knit one colour per row.
The slip-stitch-pattern is based on garter stitch so the resulting scarf is really soft, warm and squishy (and you don’t even need to know how to purl!). It’s easy to incorporate a very strong second colour without getting too bold. On this example it’s purple framed by grey.
