Waves Stitches | Knit & Crochet

Ask Me Monday: Wave Stitch

Waves Stitch

Spring is on the horizon so it’s time to switch stitch-gears from dense, warm stitches and move towards flowy, open-weave options. This week on Ask Me Monday, we chat Waves Stitch, and undulating pattern that ebbs and flows like the water we aspire to visit. I’ll cover both knit and crochet versions, plus share the Wave Hello (by me) and Wave Goodbye (by Becky Joiner) infinity scarves featured in the March YarnYAY! subscription box. Give the episode a watch, swatch with the instructions below, then put your skills to work with a Wavs Stitch project!
