Virginia's Charivari Shrug - One Stripe Done

I finished up the first ruffled stripe this week.  Wonderful mindless knitting.  I tried a variation on the knit-front-back that is going around, instead of knitting into the back of the stitch you put your needle like you're going to knit into the back of the stitch but just slip the stitch onto the needle instead.  It is called knit-front-slip-back.  It gives a cleaner increase, you don't get that little bar.

Pattern:  Traveling Zebra by Louise Robert
Yarn:  Bis-sock by Biscotte & Cie
Needle:  US 2.5 (3 mm) & US 4 (3.5 mm)
