The Wavy scarf knitting pattern


Last week I gave you a pattern for the Wave stitch swatch, and that looked like this:

I’m sure you figured out by now that it was a rehearsal knitting for this scarf.

The Wavy Scarf is an easy knit, and grows quite fast. Think “knitted Christmas gifts”. Wink wink…

Also, I think this pattern is just perfect for a beginner lace knitter.
