I made 2 drop stitch scarves. This is a really easy stitch that is simple to memorize and great for knitting in the car. To do a drop stitch, you wrap the yarn around the needle between knit stitches. On the next row, you drop the wraps. For this pattern, the wraps range from one wrap, to two wraps, then 3 wraps, then back to 2 wraps and then one wrap. In between the wrap and drop rows, you do a few knit rows and it creates the wavy pattern.
I LOVE this yarn! It's Merisoft Hand Painted merino by Punta Yarns color HP71. The picture doesn't do it justice.
The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. It's called Drop Stitch Scarf by Christine Vogel. I've talked about Ravelry a lot. If you knit or crochet, you HAVE to check out Ravelry!!!
