Sea Foam Wave Drop Stitch Knitting Pattern

Learn the Sea Foam Wave Drop Stitch Knit Pattern with free written instructions and video tutorials. My lesson tutorial on the regular Drop Stitch Garter Knit Pattern became instantly popular! Let’s turn it up a notch and create this beautiful ocean-inspired pattern simply by varying the number of yarn overs to create this beautiful wave design.

With an 8-row repeat, this airy summertime knitting pattern can be created into a wide variety of projects like scarves, cowls, shawls, blankets – even sweaters! It’s a great knitting pattern for your Summer Knitting because it has wonderful breathability. If you knit with just one color, it is also reversible.

SHAPING AND BLOCKING Sea Foam Wave Drop Stitch

You will want to sort of shape your wave pattern a little bit, you’ll definitely want to take control of that yarn, those yarn overs, and pull them into shape. Depending on the type of yarn that you use, you might want to block. I lightly steamed mine because this is cotton yarn, to really make those waves stand out and have my yarn overs lie as flat as possible.
