Slip Stitch Party by Isabell Kraemer
Slip Stitch party is the latest shawl design from Isabell Kraemer, which we are captivated by and can’t wait to see it knitted in our yarn, and think that Cheviot Marsh 4ply would be perfect.
….are you ready for a good party?
SSP is worked flat (sideways), increasing along one edge to create an asymmetrical triangle. Stitches are increased in the slip stitch pattern and then onward into the 1×1 ribbing. A built-in slip stitch edge and the slip stitch colorwork (you only work with one color on any given row) will be the perfect introduction into colorwork (promise – you will have nothing but fun!). The combination of easy slip stitch patterns and the sportive wide ribbing give this shawl a sophisticated yet casual look.
