New Knit Stitch a Week: Double Drop Stitch

Double drop stitch

Teaching myself one new knit stitch a week, from the Complete Guide to Needlework book, c. 1979.

I cast on 14 stitches in Stitch Nation Washable Ewe on size 8 needles.

A bit of a funky look as a swatch, but it looks very nice when stretched out. Working all of the drop stitches was fun, and less tricky than I thought.

Rows 1, 3, 5, 7: knit
Rows 2, 4, 6: purl
Row 8 (wrong side): K00 (winding thread twice around the needle)
Row 9: rep Row 8, letting the extra loop drop
Row 10: K, letting extra loop drop
