Slipped stitches add texture and blend beautifully with the ribbed hems. Slipped stiches as the hem edges help create snug cuffs that don’t flare. The pattern can be feminine or masculine depending on the colors you choose, and works equally well in solid or variegated yarns. Decreases are carefully calculated to line up with slipped stitch pattern with minimal interruption at the top of the mitten.
