This scarf uses the knit and purl stitches to create a ‘wavy’ variation of the traditional rib.

Wave Rib Scarf

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


25 sts + 30 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Wave Rib Pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Wave Rib Scarf Reviewed by katy holman on 2012-09-28 *****
Making this Scarf for my sister halfway threw and its very pretty I am using Forest Green Heather Yarn. Did not get the guage right so its a little wider but otherwise a great scarf. How about a matching Hat Pattern?
