Stip is a set containing a hat, a pair of fingerless mitts and a cowl, all three with a very easy slip stitch pattern (choice between 3 stitch patterns). Only one color is worked per round to create the colorwork (no fiddly stranding with two threads). The cowl is worked as tube in the round. The double fabric and the density of the stitch patterns gives it that extra warmth we need in winter. It starts with a provisional cast on and is worked sideways. Both sides will be grafted using the kitchener stitch. The sample is about 56 cm / 22” long, but can easily be made longer.
