Slipped stitch colorwork is an excellent way to combine two yarns without adding too much complexity. You only actually work with one color each round. To create the color-blended rounds, stitches are slipped rather than worked so that you retain stitches of the other color mixed in with the color you’re actually using to knit.
The pattern, sized for pre-teens to adults, is designed with warmth in mind. The slipped stitches create a lining, that thickens up the fabric and makes it more windproof.
