Many knitters get confused over the directive to “slip” a stitch.
To slip a stitch means simply to move it from one needle to the other. That’s all that “slip”, by itself, means.
I just published my newest pattern, The Pastafarian FSM Hat, on Ravelry!
I really wanted to get this one out earlier, in more time for Christmas — but life conspired against me, with a death in the family and a computer that also died (but thankfully was resurrected with about 3 days of work).
Ok, so maybe it’s not exactly “new”. But it is by “popular demand”!
This is the second post in a series about scarves I am knitting, inspired by some creative, artistic knitted scarves I saw in a gallery a few months ago. (For more background, please visit the post for Beach Gallery Scarf I.)

A couple of months ago I was out at the coast, and saw some knitted scarves in a gallery. Technically speaking, they were very simple, but they were beautiful, and the price tags on them were in three digits, in some cases. So I was inspired to try to create my own version.
First up: a slouchy, ribby, fashion-forward adult hat. The pattern is “Super Cupcake” by ChicKnits, and it uses the K1B method to create the stitch pattern that she calls Shaker Rib, but is also known as Brioche Stitch, and those of us who remember the 80’s called it Fisherman’s Rib.
