Giving You the Slip with Lily Chin
Most of the time, we think of slipped stitches in color, forming patterns know as Mosaic Knitting. Yet slipped stitches can also yield effects in texture as well. Explore single color slip stitching for raised surface interest. Slipped stitches can also neaten the side edges of the knitting. See how versatile this little action is. Sample several swatches and see the slipped stitch in action.
