I call it "Ripples in the Sand"!
Completely reversible; no wrong side!
4" x 58"
194 yds Elann Peruvian Highland Bulky (3.6 skeins)
This is my pattern:
Cast on 24 st.
Work K1-P1 rib across RS and WS.
However, the very first stitch of each row should be slipped knitwise, without knitting. Then just carry on for the remainder of the rows. The last stitch of the row is purled. No slipping.
So, Row 1 would be like this: slip 1 knitwise, (P1K1)x3, end P1.
Each side is like that.
Rows 1-7: rib
Row 8: slip 1/ rib 7 / CF8/ rib 7, ending in P1.
Repeat Rows 1-8 til your scarf is desired length.
End with Rows 1-7.
Bind off ribwise.
CF8 is: slip 4 onto cable needle, rib the next 4, rib the 4 off the cable needle
It is useful to place row markers. It is easy to miss a Row 8 and go on to a Row 10 for a cable. Count your rows.
Here is the appearance of the edge stitch:
You can see my white row markers still in place as of this photo!
A bulky weight scarf doesn't need to be any wider than 4".
