Echoing Waves Scarf to knit




Introducing my Echoing Waves Scarf. This chevron shaped scarf starts with a few stitches and uses a stitch pattern that creates textured lines across the face of the scarf. It’s easy to knit with only one purl row out of every 4 rows knitted. Carefully placed increases and decreases give the scarf its shape as it grows. Make it as small or large as you like and use any weight of yarn by choosing a needle size to compliment that yarn. 150-200 yards should give you a nice size scarf and 500-600 for a shawl size. No blocking required. The scarf should be washed and laid out flat to dry on a flat surface to relax the stitches.

The pictured scarf was made with one skein of Tahki Yarns Tandem (107 yards Aran weight) with size 9 (5.5 mm) knitting needles. Finished size after washing and laying it out flat to dry is: 27" along center x 20" along last row. This made a shorter summer scarf. You'll need more yardage for a longer scarf.

The three page pattern sells for $4.00 in my Ravelry pattern store.
