Knit and Drop... Knit and Drop....


Sort of.... I'm knitting a scarf where you do the "drop stitch" a bit differently than normal. Here is how you do it.... cast on as many stitches as you want - use whatever size needle you want - whatever type of yarn you want... I cast on with a Manos yarn (can't remember name) and cast on 18 stitches. First you knit as many rows as you choose (to go between your "drop" stitches. This can be two rows, three rows, four rows... well, you get the picture. I'm using two rows - sort of wish I had done more. Anyway, when you get ready to do the "drop" row, you put your needle in as if to knit, then you bring the yarn around the back of the right needle and "over the top" of the left needle and then around the back of the right needle, over it and then finish your knit stitch as normal... Hope I explained this well enough for you to try it!
