 [livejournal.com profile] delgaserasca got me some looooovely alpaca yarn for my birthday (alpaca yarn is my second favourite after cotton yarn, although I use them for different things) so I decided to make myself a scarf. I did look around for patterns but eventually decided to make up my own. 

It is very simple but the finished effect was pretty so here is a drop stitch pattern by me:

Drop stitch scarf

Most patterns of this type recommend using needles bigger than usually recommended but in this case I used 10mm needles with 10mm yarn. However you can really do what you want with this kind of pattern. 

Use a chunky yarn of whatever type you like (this is Blue Sky Alpacas in Atlantis and it is NOT this colour but neither of my cameras seem able to pick up the green so this was the best I could do - anyway it is lovely).

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern.

Cast on 12 stitches 

Row 1: k
Row 2: k1 (yo, k1), repeat to end
Row 3: k (drop the yo, k1), repeat to end 
Row 4: k
Row 5: k1 (yo, k1), repeat to end
Row 6: k (drop the yo, k1), repeat to end 
Row 7: k
Row 8: k1 (yo twice, k1), repeat to end
Row 9: k (drop the yo twice, k1), repeat to end

Repeat rows 1 - 9 until the scarf is as long as you want.
