So normally, the last thing you want to do is drop a stitch. Well, with this lacy scarf that's exactly what you want to do! Dropping a stitch is harder than you may think, it takes awhile to work the stitches out all the way down the scarf. This technique creates a beautiful ladder all the way through the scarf giving the scarf almost a woven look.
This technique can be used for anything from knitted curtains to let a bit of light through. Or to a plain sweater pattern to jazz it up, you can even drop the stitch different lengths down the sweater to create a design (at the end of the 'run' just sew it with matching thread to keep it from running further). To get started with the technique try our scarf pattern.
28 stitches = 4" Gauge is not all that important for this project.
