Fun with Drop Stitches! - Patty Lyons | Knitting Teacher


  • Kris Huber Van Allen

    wow, this is incredibly timely for me! I am working through a pattern on Ravelry for a shawl (Stitch Sampler) that uses YO added between stitches to produce the elongation. I’ve only used added wraps of the K stitch. I don’t see a real difference in the final fabric between these two….is there a difference/reason to choose one method over the other?

    • Different patterns will use different methods depending on what they look they are going for. One will make all elongated stitches, one can create elongated stitches between normal stitches.

      The two patterns featured in this blog (click on name for more info) offer two very different drop stitch methods. There are so many things we can do with drop stitches. In my new class we also work with manipulated drops, lifted drops, all sorts of fun!
