Drop Leaf is a fun and dainty scarf which uses drop stitches to create a lacy appearance. The scarf is constructed by knitting the center piece and continuing or picking up stitches to knit the scarf ends. Prior to working the ends, stitches are dropped and pulled along throughout the scarf.

The scarf can be knit in any weight yarn simply by changing the needles. The length may also be altered
to create a super long, warm scarf if desired.
