The Basic Drop Stitch Scarf is a great way to learn the drop stitch. It’s actually very easy, and not too scary once you get used to it! With just a three row repeat, this pattern is easy to memorize and travels easily. You can make it any length you want, and you can even change the width by casting on more or less stitches. Enjoy!
