This multi-colored stitch pattern involves the usage of slip stitch techniques throughout the work. Knitted in a multiple of 3 stitches plus 3 and a fairly fast knit, the Slipped Stitch Squares pattern is not prone to curled edges thus making it one of the most low maintenance knitting patterns. The design of this pattern allows it to knit up into a thick panel – perfect for blankets and throws.
Multiple of 3 sts + 3
Row 1 (RS) (Color A): knit.
Row 2 (Color A): purl.
Row 3 (Color B): k1, sl1, *k2, sl1; rep. from * to the last st, k1.
Row 4 (Color B): k1, sl1 wyif, *k2, sl1 wyif; rep from * to the last st, k1.
Repeat Rows 1-4.
wyib (with yarn in back): This term is used when the yarn is at the front of the work (after a PURL stitch has been performed) but has to be put to the back before the next action is performed. Take the yarn from the front to back between the two needles.
wyif (with yarn in front): bring the yarn forward as if to perform a PURL stitch.
