Here is the scarf I finished a couple of days ago. I’m calling it smokey wave scarf ’cause with those different shades of gray it looks a little bit like swirling smoke. 🙂

Smokey Wave Scarf

The pattern is my own invention, though I guess I’m probably not the first to knit such a scarf. Anyway here is what I did:

Cast on 64 stitches.

Knit one row, purl back, and knit another row before you begin with the wave pattern. Also always slip the first stitch of each row.

I used 2.5 needles (European size) and the yarn is acutally my prefered sock yarn. ( Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Mexiko Cotton Stretch) So my scarf is about 18 cm wide.

Wave pattern: It’s a simple feather and fan stitch worked over 4 rows.

1. row: Slip first stitch, k1, k2tog twice, *YO, K1 4 times, K 2 tog 4 times* repeat till there are only 6 stitches left, k2tog twice, k2

2. row: slip first stitch, knit till end of row

3. row: slip first stitch, purl till end of row

4. row: slip first stich, knit till end of row

Repeat the pattern till the scarf has the desired length and then cast off. Mine is about 2 meters, though I think the “normal” scarf is only 1,50 m. Have fun knitting! 😀
