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.

Repeat rows 1 through 12 until desired length.  Finish by knitting 4 rows.  Bind off all stitches.
