I wanted an easy way to knit plaid while not having to worry about intarsia and lots of little bobbins of yarn so I thought, why not add the vertical element in the purl ravines of ribbing! That way your crochet slip stitches lay even with the surface of the knit stitches keeping the illusion of a single knitted piece. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl crochet slip stitch GAUGE 4.5sts and 6 rows = 1" in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 32" around x 10.5" deep SUGGESTED YARN 250 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Valley Yarns Northampton COLORWAY Light Grey
