Easy as Pie.

Drop Stitch Scarf

I love scarves. I especially love the easiest of easy scarf – the drop stitch. It's one of those fun scarves you knit and just when you think you're making a mistake you're not, it's all part of the plan.

I made one back in 2009 after being inspired by a sample at the yarn shop in Philadelphia, Loop. The scarf above was actually started about a year ago but it was put in the WIP pile while I went on to other knitting. I just happened to pull it out during a bit of a stash inventory I did last week. (Alert: stash sale is a-coming!) 

If you want to make one similar 

Yarn: Rowan Bamboo Tape (now discontinued) 3 balls
Needles: US 10 

Directions:
CO 28 stitches

Knit 6 rows.
Next Row: K1, Dbl YO, repeat to last st, K1.
Next Row: *Knit 1, Drop YOs* to last stitch, K1

Repeat from start all the way through to desired length!

I love the drape of the bamboo tape in this type of scarf. It's too bad Rowan discontinued this yarn.

Speaking of pie, have I told you all about the BEST pie place that's literally steps from my apartment? Just when I was thinking by moving to California I would become all healthy and organic, I come across Chili Pies (& Ice Cream). I am weak for the Mexican Chocolate Pecan pie a la mode.

  1. Ooh – I have some tape yarn from a long ago abandoned tank top. This would be a perfect use for it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I love this! I am currently making this scarf, and I am LOVING it! It’s surprisingly easy to do. I will say, though, that I found myself needing far more than 3 balls of yarn. I found some Bamboo Tape yarn on Amazon by a different brand, and while it’s beautiful, the balls of yarn are quite small. I have already used 2 and they’re averaging about 10 inches of length each ball, so I advise more than 3!
