Pattern Description:

Xuxa (pronounced SHOO-sha) is a long cowl accented with a striking graphic pattern created using slipped stitches. This pattern was inspired by the yarn itself. I wanted to create something that accentuated the way these colors clash and yet they look beautiful together.

The slipped stitch pattern is created by slipping sts on the MC rows and then knitting the slipped sts during CC rows.
