Just drop it already!
I know, I know. Dropped stitches are a nightmare when you’re knitting. You’ve either got to frog it or painstakingly, row by row, work that stitch back up to your needles and try to slip it on without dropping the stitches on the other needle. Like I said, it’s a nightmare.
Until it becomes your dream come true.
Dropped stitches, when used creatively, add a fun eye-catching design to your knitting.
The Sea Foam Stitch pattern shows one of my favorite ways to use dropped stitches. It looks difficult, but did you know without the dropped stitches this is just plain old garter stitch?
Yup, this striking design of rolling waves of color is basically the same garter stitch you use for dishcloths. It’s just dressed up with dropped stitches.
By adding dropped stitches of various heights to a few of the rows you break up the garter ridges with bubbles.
