The staggered slip stitch is a great stitch for beginners who want to add some texture to their patterns. This stitch is commonly seen in hats, scarves, and even sometimes as decoration on sweaters. No matter how you use it, the staggered slip stitch will add a subtle raised texture that looks both fun and classy in just about any pattern.

While slipped stitches are best for knitters who are just beyond the beginner level, the textured look this stitch gives is very appealing to the eye. Similarly, it is not as difficult to master as cable stitch, so it is a great new knitting trick to learn. With this new stitch, you can make gorgeous pattern for things ranging from afghan blocks to baby blankets to cowls.
