Why on earth does a designer call a pattern “not a drop“ and there are hundreds of drops? Well, whenever I showed the scarf to a group of knitters, they always remarked “Ahh… a drop stitch” and I always answered “No, it’s not a drop (stitch)”.

This is a reversible lace pattern, which means both sides look the same (see photos). It will work best with 2-ply or 4-ply yarn which is not too fuzzy.

The pattern includes some uncommon stitches, which will give the shawl a unique look. For this reason the pattern includes a very detailed photo tutorial showing how to work these stitches.

This is a multisize pattern. Adjust size to your preference.

Since I am not a native speaker my patterns are proofread by native speakers.

The photo which shows the red scarf is made of Wollmeise 100 % Merino, Colorway “Herzblut” (courtesy of AngelinasKnits).
