What does dropped stitch lace look like?

I’ve been writing about knitting socks and dropped stitch lace using Wisdom Yarn's Prose. Now I’ll reveal what the dropped stitch lace looks like after you drop all the stitches. Here’s a before picture.

This is a “before” shot of what dropped stitch lace looks like. Get ready for all to be revealed.

And this is what it looks like when I have dropped every other stitch on this row and made a yarn over in each one’s place.

Unblocked dropped stitch lace isn’t really anything to write home about, but get that knitting onto a blocking board or foam and see everything transform into a new look!

In the above unblocked swatch, there isn’t much that is special there, is there? Well, this is one type of lace fabric that truly does benefit from the magic of blocking.
