Named for its resemblance to waves at sea, this rectangular scarf features an interesting, fun and very textural 3D type pattern accomplished by clever use of increases and decreases on a mainly garter stitch base.

The pattern chart is fairly large and the written instructions are no shorter, yet many knitters have stated that the pattern is easily memorized after working only a few repeats.

Feel free to use any yarn of your choice. However, I do recommend yarns with some sort of wool component for greater stability of the “waves”. Gauge is not all important either, but do keep the stitches fairly firm in order for the pattern to really pop.

The pattern was originally published in Danish under the name “Bølger” (Danish for “waves”) as one of the designs in my second, self published booklet Sand - strik med inspiration fra stranden (“Sand - Knits Inspired by the Sea”).
The pattern is still only available in Danish in the form of the booklet which is distributed by Familien Davidsen (http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/brands/beritdavidsendk) and can be found in many Danish yarn stores.

For the time being, the single pattern is available in English and Dutch.
It was generously translated into English by Els and Laura of the Dutch yarn shop Wolwinkel Elitt and with the help of my knitting friend Charlotte de Vries. Thanks :-)
(I am responsible for the English translation myself.)

The pattern will become available in German as well at some point, but for now I dare not say when… (Follow me on Facebook (Goodlifeknitting) for news on that.)

Opskriften på dette halstørklæde findes på dansk i mit hæfte “Sand - strik med inspiration fra stranden”, og vil ikke blive solgt som enkeltopskrift på dansk foreløbig.
P.t. fås den her som enkeltopskrift på engelsk og hollandsk, og på et tidspunkt vil den også blive oversat til tysk.
