Trying to find a similar stitch pattern...?
I'm working on a drop-stitch scarf (Easy Drop Stitch Scarf pattern on Ravelry). Here's what the stitch pattern looks like:



I'm trying to find (without any luck) a stitch pattern that's similar, but without the "holey" areas of the dropped stitches, that I can incorporate into a hat and mittens. There is a drop stitch hat pattern to match, but winters here are too cold for all those holes in a hat, especially for a child (who I'm making the set for).

Would anyone know of a stitch pattern (or actual hat or mitts pattern) that gives that wavy look? I think I'm adventerous enough to try and modify a basic garter/stockinette hat/mitt pattern to add even a bit of the wavy bit to the cuff/edge to make the set match more. Thanks!

Short rows can do that. Have you seen Lizard Ridge? If you learn the technique you can incorporate it into many things. I see you're on Ravelry so I'll link there as well.

Here's a Lizard Ridge Dishcloth -

ooh, that's just what I'm looking for! I've heard of short rows, but haven't used them in anything yet. First time for everything! Thank you so much!

Yeah, Lizard ridge would do that. Many people are using the dishcloth pattern for scarves, and even cowls.

Lizard Ridge is exactly what came to my mind too! I am dying to make something with it! I would love to do the Noro afghan, but I need to win the lottery first lol!

There is also the Double Hourglass, also called Wavy Ribbing pattern that I have in one of my stitch books. It gives pretty much the same look as lizard, except the pattern develops vertically instead of horizontal.
