Toddler Drop-stitch Scarf Knitting Pattern

4 Materials
4 Hours
A drop-stitch scarf is easier than you think to make, and knitting a toddler scarf is a great way to try a new technique since the project is so small (and cute)!
Cast on 15 stitches. (You can cast on more or less depending on how wide you want to scarf to be.)

Begin knitting in seed stitch and continue for 4 rows.
On the fourth row, knit and purl with the drop stitch technique. I wound the yarn around three times for this scarf.
Continue to knit in seed stitch for four rows, drop-stitch for one, until you’ve reached the desired length of scarf. Since this is a toddler scarf, this is a very quick project.
Bind off the last row seed-stitch-wise, and sew in the yarn. At this point, I thought it would be cute to make the scarf into a cowl, so I sewed the ends together.
