On My Needles

After my recent knitting disaster, I thought it best to keep on keeping on.

I am making my youngest daughter a scarf 🙂

Crest of the wave lace pattern scarf. Please share. You will always look forward to Mondays, with our craft inspiration roundups -CraftyLikeGranny.com #knitting #knittingstitch #laceknitting

 

The stitch pattern is Crest of the Wave lace stitch, and it has been easy so far.

The repeats for the lace stitch are the same, so I have memorised the instructions.

Knitting this pattern helps me to relax.

Are there certain knitting stitches/patterns that help you to relax?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    How did you make the scallops for your daughter’s scarf with the Crest of the Wave lace stitch?

    • Jodie- Editor Crafty Like Granny on August 28, 2018 at 4:39 pm

      Hi Vicki
      The scallops are created when you follow the lace stitch pattern repeats. It’s a lovely feature 🙂 If you end up knitting something using the Crest of the wave lace stitch, please share a pic. Cheers Jodie
