Wave Scarf Shawl

Wave Scarf Shawl

Lacey Scarfy Shawl Piece done in Louise Harding Yarn. The Yarn is called "Grace" and it is 50% silk and 50% wool. It is very soft. I am trying to learn a few more lace stitches and this was pulled together using an improvised pattern. Inspired by ocean waves coming ashore.

cast on 66 stiches with size 10 needles

Lace Rib:

Row 1 (RS) K1, *YO, K2tog, P1, K1; rep from *

Row 2 P1, *YO, P2 tog, K1, P1; rep from *
Repeat this pattern 5 times

Feather and Fan Wave Pattern:

Row 1 (RS) K28, P1, K2, YO, K2tog, K2, P1, K28

Row 2 K10, P18, K1, P6, K1, P18, K10

Row 3 K10, K2tog 3X, YO,K1 6X, K2tog 3X, P1,K2, K2tog, YO, K1, K2tog 3X, YO, K1 6X, K2tog 3X, K10

Row 4 K28,P1, K6, P1, K28

Knit 10 rows Garter Stitch
Each row a straight row of knitting

Repeat the Lace Rib, Feather and Fan Wave Pattern, and Garter Stitch Patter until reaching desired length of scarf. This creates a beautiful lacey ripple effect like wearing a scarf of ocean currents.
