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.
