Fluted Slipstitch is a textured knitting pattern that is quite similar to ribbing without actually being a rib knitting pattern. It does not behave like a ribbing pattern and is reversible, looking the same on both sides.
The two-row pattern is easy to learn and creates softly rounded columns of fluted slipstitch on both sides of the knitted fabric. As it does not shrink on itself, it is a great pattern idea for scarves.
