Difficult Techniques, if any: keeping even tension when slipping sts

Knit by: Slauditory

Because it is a slip-stitch pattern, the pattern draws in laterally. Also, it’s highly textured; that’s why the fabric has a rippled texture after blocking. It’s a thick and cushy fabric.

    I really like this. It’s a nice looking slip sttch pattern.

    All of the swatches are just beautiful! I have fell in love with all of them.
    I found this site from looking at Rochelle’s blog. All her work is beautiful too.
    I fell so much in love with it, that I ordered all of the Treasuries and the Mosaic Knitting book too. I probably shouldn’t have all at once, but I have been wanting them. I just couldn’t help it after seeing all of the wonderful work on here.
    Thanks for giving me another excuse to knit, knit, knit!

    I just love it! It’s very beautiful! Altough I didn’t really understand the bottom edge–does it suppose to be waivy? What happens if the edge would be in garter or other stitch?

    First of all, thank you! I really like this pattern.

    To explain the waviness: the way the slipped sts work is that it draws up the fabric wherever the slipped sts are, hence the waviness. the first row (in pattern) is in knit; the cast on I used is long-tail (which may explain its appearance.

    I am sorry but I left a version of this comment on Flickr.

    I am working on this pattern now as I have seen it done in 4 colors on a Latvian mitten. Wonderful pattern.
    Please don’t take offense but your sample has several mistakes in the pattern.
    Your first pattern rows are correct but for some reason on the reverse side of the second row of of the lattice color (blue) you did not knit the stitches but purled them instead giving 2 knit stitches on the front when there should have been 2 purl stitches.
    You did this consistently every other (not every) wrong side row of the blue, so that half of your lattices are wrong (and half are right). Just look across the “points” of the lattices and you can see that half of them are smooth from surface knit stitches (the wrong ones) and half of them are bumpy from surface purl stitches (correct).
    No criticism intended. I find for a simple pattern there are tricky aspects and the appearance of this fabric makes it hard to figure out how it is done.

    I think for this treasury this picture should be replaced with a correct sample.
