Whether subtle or bold, using slip stitches can create such beautiful texture and color play! Choose 2 or 3 colors to create a fun and easy to wear accessory - gray with shades of blue, white sprinkled with speckles and paired with pink or burnt orange, maybe even a forest green with ochre… whatever you decide, The Drifter is sure to be an engaging knit!

Both the 2 & the 3 color versions are available in the same PDF!
