Hello!
Quickie question for a strictly st st knitter so far...I found this pretty scarf on etsy.com (http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=14262)  and was wondering if it is done w/ a drop stitch or do you think that it is done w/ two different size needles?  Isn't it lovely?  I may need to buy it 'cause it's so cute and chunky!



Thank you!

I think it's just garter stitch on REALLY big needles - you know, knit on every row rather than purled.

It might have been done by arm knitting rather than with needles; I found a tutorial here a while ago: http://martasyarns.com.au/patterns-garments/arm-knitting.htm

It is a lovely scarf ^_^

Thanks, Teraspawn!  That's a crazy link - i'm going to have to try that someday!  My husband will think I've lost my mind entirely.  Smiley

Looks like huuuuge needles, two yarns held together, and I would guess probably st st with a reverse st st thrown in there every third or fourth row (that's just purling where you'd normally knit on the right side).  Pretty!  I wanna try one!

That's a drop stitch.. I have the pattern for it should you want it and not feel like figuring it out on your own.  Email me!

I agree. Drop stitch! And beautiful, to boot!

There's a drop stitch scarf, I'm not fond of the green though.

Same thing.

It may also be a stitch that features a fancy throw, in conjunction with drop stitch.

Well, sounds like I need to learn to drop stitches on purpose and get myself some big-o-giant needles.  Whooohoo!   Smiley
Thanks!
