Drop Stitch Crochet Cowl by Randy Cavaliere is just one of the many wonderful free patterns over at RedHeart.com. This cowl is part of their ‘Learn a Stitch, Make a Cowl’ series and I just LOVE IT!
This is my first video in my new partnership with Red Heart and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed working on the step-outs for this video. Honestly, I’ve been wearing the sample for a couple weeks and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it!

YouTube Video Notes:
I show you how to do a drop stitch in crochet which resembles the same motion as Broomstick Lace but is slightly different.
I used a size 25mm [US 50] to better show the stitches on video. But the pattern calls for a size 19mm [US 35] needle.
