Short Description: I’m an Irish girl at heart. Envision a young girl, who grew up listening to tales from her grandparents about the old country, leprechauns and banshees. And took Irish dancing lessons for 10 years. It is no wonder that this colorway, paired with these slip stitches, inspired me to name this pattern Slip Jig.
Slip jig. It is both a type of Irish music and the Irish dance to music in slip-jig time. A graceful dance that is echoed in this pattern, as the stitches are slipped and the variegated colors effortlessly take center stage. May these socks dance off your needles!
