This little 4 st, 4 row slip stitch pattern has become my favorite discovery this autumn. It gives a closely knit fabric that feels and looks woven. No need to block. No curling. No fancy stitches, beyond knitting, purling, & slipping. Just perfection.
I was going to make a cowl with 2 skeins, but loved it so much I went back and purchased 12 more skeins for a large wrap.
I am letting the yarn do all the work, not even bothering to match up the skeins’ differing start places on the color run.
I’m making mine 24 inches wide by 72 inches long - that takes 14 skeins. If you want, you can easily make it shorter or narrower. Just think in multiples of 4 plus 2 for the stitch count and multiples of 4 for the rows
The pattern results in the slipped stitches migrating to the left on a diagonal line. So easy & cool.
Make a scarf, make a cowl, make place mats or a table runner. Whatever you make, you won’t be disappointed.
