Drop Stitch Sweater Knitting Pattern- an easy pattern that’s fun to knit!
I’m back with another Drop Stitch pattern! The Drop Stitch creates a pretty open weave that’s ideal for lightweight tops and scarves/wraps. This Drop Stitch sweater knitting pattern is as easy as they come. Two identical pieces are knitted (front and back), then they’re sewn together at shoulders and sides. There’s no complicated shaping which makes this pattern completely beginner-friendly.
Have you guys seen all the amazing yarn Lion Brand has been coming out with? This CoBoo yarn (short for Cotton and Bamboo) is perfect for summer knits. It’s breathable, super-soft and it has a great drape. Also, it comes in a rainbow of pretty colors.
