One of the things I like most about knitting is how the basic can appear intricate, as well as the amazing synergy created by two simple colors. Xander achieves both by interposing an easy and entertaining slip-stitch pattern between broad swaths of color, creating the illusion of a complicated weave in a versatile and easy-to-wear piece.
Explore wild color combos or stay on the safe side – regardless, you’ll be dressed to impress.
