This pattern was originally inspired by the infamous “Clapotis” shawl that has diagonal laddering of dropped stitches. It’s a fabulous pattern, but is a little instructionally-intimidating, so in 2008 I came up with a mock-up pattern with a similar effect. The laddering doesn’t slant on a diagonal, but this pattern has minimal instructions with a close-to-same look with instructions so easy you can practically knit it hanging from a tree upside-down while munching on pizza in the dark. If that’s your thing.

Pattern Abbreviations:
BO3=bind off 3 sts
CO1=cast on 1 st
PSSO=pass 2nd st over
RS=right side of work

Stockinette stitch: Knit across on the right side, purl across the wrong side of work.
