Crochet Pattern: Faux Drop-Stitch Scarf

By Candace – 7 Comments
While thinking about the problem of replicating the knitted drop-stitch effect in crochet, I hit upon an idea. Solomon’s Knot might work if it was stacked instead of worked as a net. Fortunately for those of us who like the look of strategically dropped knit stitches, it does work, and once you get past the foundation row, it’s easy for an experienced crocheter to work up. If you get stuck, remember to check out the links in the Special Instructions section to get an idea of how the stitches should be made.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 6.5″ (16.5 cm) wide, 54″ (137 cm) long

Light Weight Yarn (125 yards)
Crochet Hook E (3.50 mm)

9 rows in pattern = 6 1/2″ (16.5 cm) wide by 3″ (7.5 cm) long

Special Instructions:
fsc=Foundation single crochet
SK= Solomon’s Knot (counts as 2 stitches, chain should be 1 inch long)
Ech= Extended crochet chain (made as long as the ch in your Solomon’s Knot)

    Well you have done it again. I do love the solomons knot or knot stitch.
    once you get the hang of it is very simple. This will be one of my
    favorites. This gives me an answer of incorporating other stitches with
    the knot stitch. Thank you so much.

    Hello Candace and Everyone,

    I don’t do much blogging (as you can probably tell), but I just had to write to tell you how cool your idea for this scarf is. The Soloman’s Knot is not a favorite stitch for me, and your use of it this way is just awesome! I hope you copyrighted this stitch sequence, because I’m thinking many people will be copying it–it’s that great! Like Linda Cee, I know what my next scarf gift will be. Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays, too!
