I love finding interesting, easy ways of using color in a piece. This slip stitch squares pattern is really simple to knit, yet it creates a beautiful, soft look. Work it up as shown here or experiment with your own colors. Try reversing the colors for a different look, as I did in the coordinating cardigan (Pattern 112).
In Slip Stitch Squares pattern, 21 sts and 31 rows = 4"/10 cm.
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
