Pinstripes & Chains in Knit Now

The Pinstripes & Chains set is my latest design, in issue 12 of Knit Now - it's at newsagents now in the UK, and should be at select shops in the US next month.

This hat & mitts set makes use of stripes and slipped-stitch colorwork to create vertical stripes - optional cables add an extra bit of interest. Best of all, the above hat & mitts set took just one 50g ball each of the two colors! Time to shop the stash...

I loved knitting these - the slipped stitches are so simple and I love the pinstriped effect. Carrying the yarn up the inside of the work means a minimum of ends to weave in. While knitting the two sets of mitts (one with cables and one without), I had a serious case of "one more round"!
