In my last post I asked for scarf pattern recommendations and Marilyn suggested that I get on Ravelry and look up the Drop Stitch Scarf pattern. Since she’s all kinds of awesome, I took it to heart and jumped on Ravelry. There were lots of scarf patterns listed under “Drop Stitch Scarf” but I’m pretty sure this is the one she meant in her suggestion.
I took a look at the pattern, decided I could handle it and cast on that night. I cast on with size 9 circulars because apparently I don’t have any straight needles in that size, but it seems to be working out ok. I will admit to having to rip out a couple rows due to accidentally dropping the wrong stitch and not noticing until I was a couple rows past it, but overall this is a fun pattern. All of the yarn overs and stitch dropping can be a little scary at first but I think it will turn out great.
The only drawback is I think this one is going to require blocking when I’m all done and I’ve never blocked anything (Shhhh…don’t tell the knitters!) I guess I’ll have something new to learn, eh?
Anyway, this is as far as I’ve gotten on it so far because I was busy making Halloween cookies last night but I plan on working on it some more tonight while I watch my shows.3 Comments
