Stip is a set containing a beanie, a pair of fingerless mitts and a cowl, all three with a very cute little slipped stitch pattern (choice between 2 stitch patterns). Only one color is worked per round to create the colorwork (no fiddly stranding with two threads). It is an ideal stasbuster. Choose 2 or 3 of your favorite colors and brighten up the winter days.
The three stip patterns (hat, mitts and cowl) are bundled in one e-book: stip

The hat starts with a tubular cast on - a super easy way with an always impeccable result is described in the pattern - and is worked bottom up and seamlessly in the round. The length can easily be adjusted to make a beanie or a more slouchy hat. A large pompom finishes the hat. (Instructions for making a pompom included).
