A Fresh Look at a Classic Technique Slip stitch is one of the simplest and most versatile knitting techniques, but it's often overlooked. The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is a modern and thorough take on this technique that delivers beautiful colorwork and gorgeous textures--with minimal effort. A complete overview covers all the basics of slip-stitch knitting, including stitch formation, reading charts, customizing stitch patterns, choosing yarns, designing with slip-stitch patterns, and more. Forty stitch patterns, many of which are reversible, stretch the boundaries of slip stitch, creating colorwork that is just as graphic as Fair Isle, but much simpler; woven-looking fabrics; and fabulous textures that are sometimes combined with lace and cables. Sixteen original projects for cardigans, pullovers, hats, bags, scarves, and more showcase the versatility of slip stitch by using it as an allover pattern or accent. Whether you're new to this exciting stitch or looking to go beyond the basics, The Art of Slip-Stitch Knitting is your essential guide.
