Description
An excellent introduction to slip-stitch technique, this cap is worked in the round from the bottom up, with descreases for the top. Traditional Bosnian slip-stitch patterning uses front- and back-loop stitches to create blocks of texture. Vertical stripes are on the bias, since rows worked in the round do not stack up one stitch over the other.
