An almost abstract pattern of waves in a tangle of dropped stitches - a challenging knit, with lace stitches on right side and wrong side rows and lots of dropped stitches to keep track of.

Painted Waves is also available as part of the knit/lab Waves volume 2 eBook.

The sample was knit on 3.25mm/US3 needles with a half set, 320yds/300m of colorshift yarn in the Peacock Blue to Hot Pink color bridge colorway. It’s a small summer scarf, measuring approximately 17in/43cm wide by 45in/114cm long. A project worked with a full set (640yds/600m) of the yarn and a 138st CO will measure approximately 26in/66cm wide by 57in/145cm long.

Unfortunately, ColorShift is currently unavailable. If you are looking for substitute yarns, ColorShift Yarn is described in the Etsy Store as a two-ply jumper weight (fingering) yarn milled from 23.5 micron superwash Merino wool that knits up at about 8 st/in on US1-2 needles (2.25-2.75mm). There is a Gorgeous Gradients group here on Ravelry which might be a good starting point for substitute gradient yarns, and you can click on the “yarn ideas” tab above to see what yarns have been used in Ravelry projects.

The chart is quite big due to the asymmetric repeat of the wave motif.

Charted pattern with large chart and short written instructions.
