Hey, lovely!

I hope you are well today. Thanks for stopping by to learn how to drop stitches in your knitting and make this gorgeous Drift Cardi pattern by Kristina Smiley.


Nothing to fear! You are going to love this technique and want to drop ALLLL the stitches. Haha.

Have a watch:

See? I told you it was fabulously easy.

You can grab this Drift Cardi pattern here.

We used 1 Seashell Hues yarn kit to make this but any fingering weight yarn you love will do the trick. Even lace or sport would be divine.

“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.” Don Miguel Ruiz
