Treat yourself with this gorgeous, lightweight scarf or wrap to wear in spring and summer. Short rows alternated with lace rows are used to create a light wavy pattern with a bubbly effect. It’s great to use yarn with a long color gradient, but it works as well with a solid color.

Besides basic garter stitch, you need the following skills to knit this scarf:

  • Basic lace stitches: i.e yo (yarn over), k2tog (k2 together), ssk (slip slip knit)
  • German short rows with double stitches (however, the pattern explains how to adapt it to use the “wrap and turn”-method, too).

The finished piece measures about 46 cm in width and 170 cm in length.
