Drop Stitch Scarf

Drop Stitch Scarf
The Drop Stitch Scarf is one of those knitting patterns I love, deceptively simple, elegant and never boring. The perfect spring scarf because it is light and airy, so it will keep away the brisk chill morning without leaving you sweaty. Best of all  — it’s fun! We’ve seen it done in solids and multi’s and it comes out fantastic every single time.

    These will be lovely to size up wider and make into Prayer Shawls. My church has a ministry that does them. Thank You
