Tuesday Tutorial: Working Dropped Stitches

Hello!

Today I’m revisiting one of my video tutorials that never got a proper introduction on the blog.  That video is from the Yarn Year Round Club in January 2016, showing how to work the dropped stitch sections on the Wonderland Wrap.

I just love the dropped stitches in this pattern, the Wonderland Wrap!

The technique is one of my favorites, because it makes the fabric build quickly, and it is great for showing off beautiful color in hand-dyed yarns.  This pattern shows off our custom colorway, “A Winter’s Eve,” created by SweetGeorgia yarns.  (Pssst!  There are a few skeins left for sale in the Yarn Year Round Extras Shop here!)

There is more than one way to do dropped stitches, and in fact, I use a different one in my Sunset Sky wrap.  The one shown here, for the Wonderland wrap, though is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, who is willing to be patient, and careful not to get the extra wraps too tight!  Check out the how-to below:

That’s all there is to it!  Hope you enjoy revisiting this technique, and will try it soon!

Have you ever worked dropped stitches before?  Do you enjoy it?

Tell me in the comments!

Happy Knitting!
