Slip Stitch


Slip Stitch is a great way to add texture and interest to your knitting.
When knitting slip, certain needles do not knit and the working yarn travels UNDER the out of work needles.

Once you understand how slip stitch is created on your machine, the sky's the limit!

  • Change the number of rows slipped
  • Change the needles selected
  • Change the number of rows between slipped stitches
  • Put some needles out of work
  • Add color
  • Mix 'n match stitch patterns
