Live on the edge with today’s scarf! Drop stitches on purpose for a unique look!

Over the last two weeks, we’ve shared with you some of the scarves we’ve been making for our Hat & Scarf Charity Drive at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. Whether you’re making them as gifts or for charity, come back from now until Thanksgiving for inspiration & patterns for easy scarves from the Studio’s staff.

Andrea’s Drop Stitch Scarf (show in Scarlett)

CO 24.
Row 1 – 7: Knit.
Row 8: *K1, YO* repeat from * to last stitch, end with K1.
Row 9: Purl across row, slipping each YO
Row 10: *K1, drop YOs* repeat from * to last stitch, end with K1.
Repeat rows 1 – 10 for body of scarf.
Knit 7 rows.
Bind off and weave in ends.

*As with all of our scarf patterns shown, we only used one ball for our scarves, but you can use two and make them as long or short as you wish. Vanna’s Choice’s recommended hook size is J-10; its recommended needle size is US9.

    This pattern picture and the directions don’t seem to match. I believe she does the 7 rows of knitting each time she does the drop-the-slip-stitch row?

    Zontee says: Hi Mary, yes, you’re correct. Sorry, that was an editing mistake. We’ve gone ahead and fixed it.
