wavy rib pattern scarf help
I have read and re read the pattern. I have seen this question on other forums. Row 1 I understand.
Row 2 and all even rows

This means I look at the current row I am on and knit accordingly.
Others say do the just opposite. Purl the Knits and so on.
If it was supposed to do the opposite then why does it not state that

K3 is the border to that mean P3 the next row.
I have stopped on this scarf because it is not come out correctly.

Hope someone can give me help. I will be going on to another

I don't know about anyone else, but I tend to see patterns as, well, patterns. In this scarf you have to think of each row in sets of six. You get that from the first 4 rows you knit of the K3, P3 ribbing. Then you note, the deviant row starts on row 5 with a P1, [k3, p3] to last 5 sts, k3, p2.

It's going to go back and forth a bit as you go along. This is just me looking at the pattern, I haven't even tried it yet, but it seems to me to be a back and forth set of 7 alternating types of stitch patterns.

God, I hope this makes sense because it makes perfect sense to me right now as I look at the pattern. Because, you cast on 42 stitches of 7 blocks of six stitches in a K3, P3 ribbing. Then you have a back and forth alternating pattern to create the wave after 4 rows of ribbing.
Knitting to keep my sanity. It's working... kinda...

For ribbing you do knit the knits and purl the purls on the current row. For seed stitch you would do the opposite, purl the knits and knit the purls. If you have a link to the pattern we can take a look and help you out so you can finish this.

What Angela says makes sense. The odd number rows change a bit so the rib pattern is offset a stitch. The even numbered rows you knit the knits and purl the purls just like the pattern says.
