The Dewdrop Stitch Pattern is a nice and easy little yarnover pattern.

In fact, it is perfect for beginner knitters who want to try out an openwork pattern.

Another reason it is perfect for beginners, is that it is a non-curling fabric. This means that no blocking is needed to make it lay flat.

Even though it is not classified as a reversible pattern, the “wrong” side of this pattern is still interesting.

This makes it great for a project where you have two public sides. So, that makes the Dewdrop Pattern perfect for baby blankets as well as scarves or cowls.

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for Level 3 - Easy Level Knitters
