For this project, I decided I wanted to outline each stripe with two layers of surface crochet slip stitches. The result is shown in the right hand photo. The lower layer of slip stitches is crocheted with worsted weight kitchen cotton yarn in a light blue color; this layer was crocheted first. The upper layer of surface crochet is crocheted in dark blue embroidery floss afterward.
