One of my favorite things about working with yarn is that I can make amazingly textured garments with just a few strands. That’s also is why I love using slip stitches – this technique is very simple and it allowed me to create detailed colorwork and textures at the same time.
You can make detailed stripes like in our Slip Stitch Pom Scarf and Hat or experiment with stitches and patterns in our Mosaic Tote. Use a variety of colors with Vanna’s Palettes or BonBons or even a color-changing yarn for a gradient effect – I recommend Landscapes®, Tweed Stripes®, and Unique.
Here are some of our new patterns that also use the slip stitch technique.
