Knitting (derived from the word ‘knot’) is the process of using two of more needles to create a fabric made of a series of loops. Loops and loops and more loops makes something wearable. Here is Wavy Wave.
A voluminous shawl worked in Warm Moonshine (three different colours – 2 skeins in Colour 1 and one skein in Colour 2), plus one skein of Thin Zebra. Cast-on and work two skeins (in Colour 1 and Colour 2), cast-off, then pick-up stitches on the long edge and work in one skein of Thin Zebra, then two skeins of Colour 1, work a few rows of pattern repeat in Colour 2 and cast off in Thin Zebra.
The wave pattern-repeat in meditative and relaxing to work. Wavy Wave is a simple structure but looks dynamic and razzmatazz-y.
