WAVE CLOUD is a long wrap around scarf with accents of ‘waves’ knitted after the main part has been created – the waves are worked horizontally along the length of the scarf by picking-up sts and working moss-stitch waves.
The main part is worked in LIGHT MOONSHINE (or any of our soft and luxurious DK yarns) and the waves are worked in WARM SPECKLED (or any of our 4ply yarns). If desired add pom-pom accents randomly along the ‘waves’.
