This pattern was inspired by the beautiful handspun yarn from Fuzzbee Yarns. I loved the slight variation in the thickness of this single ply handspun, and I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off the beauty of the yarn. After trying a slew of different stitch patterns, some simple, some quite complicated, I settled on this lovely drop stitch pattern. It is simple to knit, and looks elegant without being too plain or too ornate.
The pattern includes both written and charted directions.
28 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
I started knitting in the long cold winters of Armenia while serving in the Peace Corps. Knitting was a way for me to keep some remaining shreds of sanity. My first knitting projects were small toys that I would hide in my friends homes when I went to visit them...Ok, maybe knitting fed my lack of sanity.
