This pattern was inspired by the beautiful handspun yarn from Fuzzbee Yarns. I loved the slight variation in the thickness of this single ply handspun, and I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off the beauty of the yarn. After trying a slew of different stitch patterns, some simple, some quite complicated, I settled on this lovely drop stitch pattern. It is simple to knit, and looks elegant without being too plain or too ornate.

The pattern includes both written and charted directions.
