FO - Boys "Magic" Scarf
I have posted a few times about having made my son a magic scarf using a drop stitch pattern that I made up. I decided to show you all because it was hard to explain. So here goes:

It would help if I EVER wrote anything down. I'm not really creative when it comes to making up patterns, I am better at taking something and modifying it. All I did for this pattern was to knit up some swatches with the yarn I wanted to use. Then I started dropping stitches. It took five swatches to find a drop repeat that looked okay. The thing about the furry magic scarves is that they hide the large holes created by the dropped stitches. ANYWAY - I used worsted weight wool blend yarn. I decided to drop every sixth stitch, so I chose a multiple of six for my cast-on and knit in stockinette stitch on circular needles. You have to remember that with dropping every sixth stitch, it will get longer and wider than your cast-on. (Knitting math says that dropping every sixth stitch will increase the size of your tube both length and width wise by 1/6th). So you plan for that when you decide the length of the tube you knit. There is a special cast-off of the tube, I used this one. Now the finished pic on that pattern is scary which is why I experimented so much before I decided how many stitches to drop. :-)
