Comments: This faux-plaid is made with slipped stitches - for the longer ones, you wrap the yarn twice so that it carries nicely, without puckering the fabric. Very fun effect, but I fear the slipped stitches would catch on things too easily, and get ruined. Oh well... (ps: that is a greenish yarn for the background, its not just your eyes!) ;)
