DROPS Spring / Summer 2011, patterns are coming online!
We are now posting the patterns on an ongoing basis as they are
finished and proofread. This year, the collection consists of many
classic and lightweight "must-haves". We have used new and old
knitting and crochet techniques to get beautiful asymmetrical shapes
and nice, interesting textures. There is everything from tunics and
small shoulder garments to trendy interior items in beautiful, bright pastels. The patterns
included in the new books are selected on the basis of the voting results and accompanying
comments have weighed heavily. There is something for everyone. Thanks for all the
comments and ratings! Enjoy! Presentation of this year's DROPS design team DROPS
