Slip-stitch :: 3

The diamond motifs created by slip stitches in this pattern are hardly noticeable if you look at the garment directly. But when you change the angle a bit – here they are – nicely shaped diamonds. Using this pattern in a garment is an invitation to play hide-and-seek – lots of fun. You will definitely attract attention in a sweater made with this pattern. For best results don’t use this pattern for the whole garment, use it as an accent.

Yarn shown in this swatch: Knitca Lovely 100% bamboo, color 0366 Apple Green.
Needles: US size 6 (4 mm).

You can also work according to the chart below.

Don’t forget to knit first and last stitch as selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

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.
