How would I go about making holes in stockinette stitch similar to this?

Those are deliberately dropped stitches allowed to ladder down.

See? I couldn't have done that if I was dead.

It's the technique seen in Knitty's Clapotis and a couple items in the Stitch N Bitch books.

There's a pattern in a Knitter's Magazine too. You place YOs, knit the extra stitch and then drop it after knitting a few inches. Making the yo keeps the stitch from going all the way to the caston.

It also depends on what type of holes you are talking about... if you want to drop stiches or make actual holes like the cheese scarf on the completed projects board. You might check that project out as she's already taken the time to write out a great pattern with holes!

The dropped stitches won't make the knit garment come apart, would it?

As long as you use a YO to start them, no. That prevents it from unraveling. Also know that the extra stitches and their ladders will add to the width of what you're making. Try out a sample -- CO about 30 stitches, then randomly place some YOs after a few rows. Knit about 4 inches and drop the stitches that were made from the YOs. Then you can get an idea if that's the effect you want.

I like to play around with knitting, trying out patterns to see what works, even just monkeying around without a pattern. That's what all that leftover yarn is for, right?  Wink

I'd like to make a punk-ish sweater, but it's too late for that here! I'll probably do a belt and armwarmer.  Huh
