Be So Wild Knit Drop Stitch Shawlette FREE Pattern

Be So Wild Knit Drop Stitch Shawlette FREE Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl

Drop stitches are a fabulous way to show off the texture of beautiful and uniquely constructed yarns. It is the perfect way to show off the texture of Be So Wild Yarn, a yarn exclusively made in Kristin Omdahl’s studio, combining ribbons, mohair, sequins and more, and wrapping them all together with a silk thread. This pattern is super quick! One of the greatest benefits of drop stitches is that they grow a fabric exponentially! The how-to tutorial video walks you through this incredibly simple process step by step.
