Stitch of the Week: Raindrops Stitch

December 28th, 2012

 Hey Knitters,

The Raindrop Pattern takes a little skill to knit.  So if you are an intermediate knitter, then give is stitch pattern a try. If you’re not, you can still try it. The raindrop stitch is a reverse stockinette stitch that really makes the raindrops pattern individually stand out.

This is a 6 Stitch pattern repeat.


Yarn Round Needle (yrn)

Purl two together (p2tog)





Cast on multiple of 6 stitches plus 5 extra stitches. Work 4 x 4 swatch gauge to practice.
