Dropped and Found Wrap ~ Free Knit Pattern | Jessie At Home

Something I would really love to try!!!

Dropped and Found Wrap ~ Free Knit Pattern | Jessie At Home.

At first sight I thought, “Oh, how fiddly and complicated it must be to make this huge stitch!  But, this stitch pattern is just too incredibly easy.  It is accomplished simply by using dropped stitches, then weaving, or ‘braiding’ them (in a manner of speaking) from bottom to top.

I am sure this look can easily be replicated in crochet as well using chain stitches.  And, I swear I saw a video tutorial on this as well…just can’t seem to find it now! (dadgummit)

Here’s a video to show just how easy this look is to accomplish this stitch by knitting:

Sooo, what I am thinking is…what a lovely blanket (afghan, if you are old-fashioned like me) this would make.  Super warm and snugly.  I would think that using over sized needles might give a very nice drape while not ending up too ‘bulky’.   Oh!  Bulky yarn!!!

Yet another ‘thing’ on my endless list of things-to-do!!!  Have a great weekend, and ~ GO HAWKS!!!  (Just had to throw that in!)  ~GMa Ellen

    Love this – just finished ti now I am going to pull the ends together as shown in the picture I have, making a large tassel which pulls it together and takes away the bulkyness this has been so much fun and rewarding to do ‘;)

    I am having trouble understanding what I should be doing. Do I cast on 81 sts. and basically make the whole shawl at one time with the dropped sts along the entire piece?
