Let me count the ways. When it comes to creating dropped stitches in your knitting, you gain the great advantage of adding an endless amount of variety by simply dropping your stitches…intentionally!
In the short video below, I’ll share a few ideas that you may want to jump off from to start exploring this technique, and I’ll demonstrate two versions of the basic drop stitch and then you’ll see why I think drop stitches are so divine!
I love to manipulate a variety of drop-stitch methods. Each of the techniques I use either builds upon another version or is used on its own. In the video, I discuss the Basic Drop Stitch, Horizontal Strand Pick-Up Drop Stitch, and a few other methods that put a spin on this easy technique.
By using these methods in a variety of combinations, along with experimenting with various needle sizes, you can create a variety of shapes such as triangles and squares. You can also play with double strands of yarn, and embellishments such as fringe and beads.
I hope you found my video informative and inspirational!
