This pattern will make an amazing baggy sweater, scarf, top, skirt or dress – that is anything you have in mind except for something really stretchy and close-fitting because as any slip-stich pattern this one creates beautiful texture at the cost of some elasticity.

All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.
You can also work according to the chart below.
Note: 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 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.
