By working a slip stitch round juxtaposed with simple garter, a beautiful texture is created which shows off both your knitting skills and the beautiful ModeKnit Worsted Yarn of your choice to perfection!
This is a wonderful project for the knitter who would like to try colorwork, but only wants to use one color at a time! It’s a great technique, as long as you can knit and purl, you can do it!
Each kit comes with two 50g skeins of either ModeLuxe or ModeWerk (choose your color combinations below, click here for the full palette) and the pattern for this delightful piece!
The stitch pattern looks great in just about any combination.

Bright blue and stark scarlet streaks on a deep purple base create a dramatic and beautiful fabric.

Sometimes Pink & Black play nice, like on a Chanel box, but in this colorway they’ve met in a dark alley and are halfway through a rip roaring night on the town. And they might not be home for breakfast.
Strong red & pink tones on light orange base with a touch of yellow, hot – like the planet for which it was named!
A strong blue with overtones of blue/black make this an unforgettable colorway.
A mix of strong green and mid blue tones on an aqua base floats over touches of warm yellow.
Deep, rich, strong red, so full of life you can almost taste it!
A warm olive green with yellow and black overtones, excellent as a neutral or for traditional male garments.
Not just black, but a combination of colors overdyed with the darkest grey to create layers of black with unusual glints of lighter grey.
Rich orange and subtle pink tones blend onto a yellow base make a color with a bit more life than the average orange blend.

Skill Level: K 2 Easy
Notions: Darning needle, waste yarn for provisional cast on (optional)
Sl 1 – Slip One Stitch Keeping yarn to the wrong side of work, insert right hand needle purlwise into stitch and slip onto right needle.
K2tog-L – Knit 2 tog with a Left Slant Knit 2 sts together so the working needle is pointing to the left as it enters the stitch (dec will slant to the left) aka SSK, k2togTBL or skp.
K2-tog Bind Off – K2tog-L, slip the stitch just created back onto the left needle and repeat. Work to the end and pull the fiber tail through the last loop.
Provisional Cast On – This is a term used to describe a temporary cast on which can be easily removed later, leaving a row of live stitches to be slipped onto a needle and worked. One favorite method is to crochet a chain in waste yarn with at least as many sts as you would like to cast on. Tie off the end of the chain, placing a knot in the tail. Slip your knitting needle into the bump at the back of each chain, creating a “stitch” on the needle. When desired, the chain can be loosened and pulled off at the knotted end.
