Vertical Stripe Slip Stitch
I’m on a vertical strip slip stitch kick lately, including them in designs for everything from light-weight flowing shawls, to chunky Christmas stockings. This week on Ask Me Monday I show how to use the technique both flat and in-the-round, plus offer some great vertical stripe slip stitch project options. Enjoy!
