A regular bind off should work well but it needs to be done loosely. If you have to, go up a needle size or two. When you cast on, you just do a regular cast on and the pattern pulls the fabric into scallops. You may get inverted scallops for the cast off but it should still wave. This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUuoHSun9WI) shows you what that looks like and recommends a bind off on row 2 of their pattern for the neatest effect.

Thanks for the video. I'm working on a feather and fan dishcloth and I'm really struggling. Much appreciated!
