This pattern looks simple and it is. Once you master an easy technique of slipping stitches (follow description in “Key to chart”) you are sure to love knitting slip-stitch patterns. The most amazing thing is that the knitted fabric created with this pattern doesn’t look knitted at all. Actually the fabric looks like woven. This effect will look great on a jacket. If you decide to make a jacket with lapels or collar, you can use another feature of this stitch pattern – a very attractive boucle-like wrong side (see the second picture below). But beware, slip stitch patterns are not as stretchy as other knitting stretch patterns.
Cast on an even number of stitches. Work stitches in right side rows like row 1 in the chart below. Don’t forget to knit first and last stitch as selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge. In every wrong side row work stitches like row 2 in the chart below. Repeat rows 1 to 8 till necessary for completing your project.
Note that the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier for you, the number of each row is shown at the beginning of the row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
