Slip-stitch patterns work up beautifully in hand-dyed yarns. It helps the colorway show itself off a bit differently and adds some texture. Pure Alpaca Paints is soft and warm - begging to be a cowl. There was some very interesting pooling and texture with this stitch. If you do not want a rolled edge, I would suggest several rows of moss stitch on each edge.
