Gauge

24 sts & 31 rnd = 4’’ / 10 cms
Worked over stockinette stitch using larger needles in the round, after blocking.

24 sts & 18 rnd = 1,4’’ / 3.5 cms
Worked over stitch pattern using larger needles in the round, after blocking

NOTE:
I decided to use a silk mohair yarn with a fingering yarn to create the pattern. The use of two contrast colors or two neutral colors will make the slip stitch pattern seem very different.
