A Dropped Stitch

Words that can strike horror into any knitter and those that live with her.

But with this pattern, these words create an airy scarf that can be used to dress up a sweater.

Live in a warm climate? No worries, the ribbon yarn lends itself well to the hot temperatures.

With a single skein of Red Heart Sashay, or other ribbon yarn simply cast 5 stitches onto a size 13 needle. And knit every row until you have a small amount of yarn left.

On the last row, very loosely bind off in knit 1, drop 1 across. Make sure to end with a knit.

Now pull the dropped stitches all the way down the length of the scarf.

Using a sewing needle and thread, sewing the ends into the scarf.

In less time than it takes to watch a movie you can create an airy ribbon scarf.
