Crest of The Waves Scarf
This a very simple scarf pattern involving exactly one pattern row. This pattern is not copyrighted and you are free to share.
Materials: Pick the yarn and needles of your choice. I'd recommend a large needle in relation to the yarn. For example, for the example scarf I used a DK weight mohair blend with a size 8 needle. For a worsted weight, I might use a size 9 or 10 needle. For a fingering weight, maybe a size 6 needle. The idea is to create a very drapey fabric. I prefer lighter colored yarns for this scarf, but that's just my personal preference.
