KIP stands for Knitting in Public. This scarf/shawl is perfect for that! The pattern is easy to remember, and it is easy to spot where you are without a lot of counting and figuring. The Kip is a scalene triangle: all sides are different and all angles are different. It can be knit with almost any weight yarn. When you run out of yarn, finish with an icord bind off.
The pattern is a section of stockinette, rotated with a section of the slip stitch pattern.
A fringe is added at the change of each pattern
**It is easy to find where you left off. Great for carefree knitting!
