Slip Stitch Knits has 12 of the most gorgeous and creative scarf, cowl, and shawl patterns. Slip stitch knitting is such a fabulous technique for adding texture and pops of color to a pattern. The patterns in this book are very well written. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The author gives some great tips to start and finish your projects like a pro and provides a ton of helpful information and resources. I want to try them all!
I am delighted with this book! I have never heard of Slip-Stitch Knitting before and I am totally fascinated by what you can achieve using this simple technique and only basic knitting stitches.

My favourite designs are the Yahara Bay Shawl, Thunder Hollow Run Scarf and Glacial Ridge Scarf.

The instructions are clearly written and include the Stitch Pattern Multiples for each design. Some of the patterns include Slip-Stitch Pattern Charts and some include a Schematic Drawing.

12 beautiful designs are included for you to try!

Review from Deb Boyken, Knitting Scholar Blog, June 2015

This is a nice, slim book (just 64-pages) of slip-stitch knitting patterns... which, I know, doesn't tell you anything you can't get from looking at the cover. The beauty of this book is that it gives you a dozen patterns that play with color and colorwork using slipped-stitches for knitting. You knit with just one color per row, but end up with creative, fun garments to wear. And by garments, I mostly mean things to wrap around your neck - scarves, cowls, and shawls. The book starts with some basic instructions and a how-to for reading slip-stitch charts, and then dives immediately into the patterns. There's a close-up of each stitch pattern to kick off the patterns and extra notes as needed for special techniques. Personally, I think the scarves are the winners here, with the cowls a close second. I'm not in love with any of the shawls, but I appreciate the stitch-work, nonetheless... a nice little book, with equally nice patterns.
