'Wavy' scarf from knitty
hi all,

I am knitting this for my mother for christmas and I have a question about the pattern.

it says for all even numbered rows, K the K stitches and P the P stitches. I want to be sure that for those wave.. it would actually turn out in stockingette stitch.

for example, the first row is K3P3 ending in P3 based on the number of CO stitches so my next row I assume should be P3, K3.

And just to make sure I really have it..

Row 9 is P2, [k3, p3] to last 4 sts, k3, p1.

So can I assume that Row 10 is K1, P3 [P3, K3] to last 2 stitches, K2.

Thanks!!!!

Actually, you are CLOSE. Row 10 should be K1, P3 [K3, P3] to the last 2 sts, K2.

That is a FUN scarf to knit! Good luck!

And if your first row is K3,P3 across ending in P3, then your second row should be: K3, P3 across

You want to knit the stitches that look like knit stitches (purl stitches from the previous row) and purl the st. that look like purl st. (knit stitches from the previous row).
I hope that wasn't even more confusing.

Perfect. that makes sense. I just finished a basket weave scarf so I can really identify which are which as I come to them. a few weeks ago when I CO for this scarf I was really confused. But now that I have seen the K and P stitches A LOT for the other Scarf I think I am ready.

Thanks guys!!!

my mother wants a *gasp* white scarf. so I bought Patons decor to make it. I wanted to use a nice cashmere or merino for her, but with white you NEED to be able to wash it so I figured better to be safe than sorry!!!! Her winter coat is red with white trim so this will match nicely.

Thanks for all the help!

Wavy Rib - Clarification to Instructions
Stitches Used
Pattern Stitch: Wavy Rib

Rows 1, 3, 5, 13, 15, and 17: K3, (p2, k2) 6 times, end k1.

Row 2 and All Even Rows: K the knit sts and p the purl stitches.

Rows 7, 9, and 11: K3, (p6, k2) 3 times, end k1.

Rows 19, 21, and 23: K3, p2, (k2, p6) twice, k2, p2, k3.

Row 24: Same as Row 2.

Rep Rows 1-24 for pattern.

I want to make sure I do the even rows correctly. When I do row 2 I start with p1 and (k2,p2 ) 6 times ending with p3. I am correct in doing the reverse of what the even row instructions are?

Thanks, Annie

Yes, that's right. When you do the WS rows you knit the sts that look like knits, and purl the ones that look like purls as you're looking at them. Don't try to figure out what they were on the previous row; the back of a knit st is a purl and vice versa, so you just work them as they appear on the row you're doing now.

wavy rib pattern
CONFUSED ISN'T THE HALF OF IT. I have ripped out this scarf three times. And it still does not look right. I think they have the ROW 2 EVEN ROWS worded wrong. It does not say what I think it should say.

I thought this was an easy pattern but now i have a headache.
I look at the row on my needle and knit accordingly. If it looks like a KNIT I KNIT etc. But it is not looking right.

I will start another pattern of something else TOMORROW

Now I can't wait to finish this Irish Hiking Scarf to start the Wavy Scarf. Some girls in my family are going to be very happy this Christmas.

It sounds like the even rows are worded correctly and that you're doing it right. But it's not a straight rib, but a wavy one that's moved over a little, so it won't look like regular ribbing. Try it for about 3" and you should see the pattern look like it should.
