I created a diagonal drop stitch scarf pattern back in 2008, but was waiting to post until I could get the full pattern together. I didn't realize then that it would take FIVE YEARS! Still, I created this pattern to show off variegated yarn that didn't result in horizontal blocks. It's also a good way for advanced beginners to start playing and using new skills.



I used size nine straight needles and Lion Brand Suede yarn to make a two-colored (Cruella De Ville) scarf. It still had good drape, but will be nice and warm once the weather cools down again.

I created a free download of the pattern, but it's very simple and you can use any yarn you like. I hope this helps some people expand their skills! If you decide to knit it, please drop me a line if you see any mistakes and let me know how it turned out! http://fanofstuff.com/diagonal-drop-stitch-scarf-pattern-3

I'm not a knitter, but I like the effect of the stitch, it is quite interesting.

That looks great, the wool looks lovely and soft.
