Have you always wanted to try some colorwork? But you don’t want to have to carry floats? Or maybe you just love the relaxing and soothing rhythm of slip stitches like I do! Enter It’s a Slippery Slope – your gateway to more color! This is an entirely slip stitch pattern, even though it ends up looking exactly like stranded knitting in the end.

The mitts begin with a rolled edging and a special no-twist join written into the pattern. The sample is worked with 10 contrasting colors along with the master color, but the pattern is written for three colors, so you can choose your own style. Don’t worry – I’ve added all the color info in case you want to have a pair just like mine!
