Crest of the Wave Scarf

Remember the Crest of the Wave Shawl that I made a month or so ago? 


Quite a few people asked for the pattern.  It is a very easy, very repetitive, and I love it.  Yesterday, I finally got around to writing it down.  If you check the left side bar, you'll find a new list: Patterns.  Just click.  The file is a pdf.  It's free.  Have fun.  I didn't include instructions for the fringe. You can always figure some interesting embellishment if you like that sort of thing (being a magpie, I have to have a bit of shine , maybe you do to).  If you do decide to make it, I'd love to see your version.   

Tomorrow the take downs start.  You know the old adage "what goes up must come down"... so it is with holiday displays.   It fits right in this time of year with another about death and taxes.  I know I promised pictures, but instead of taking pictures while the light was good, I went out shopping.  Err.... since I didn't buy maybe not shopping, but looking for a new sofa.  The one in the den has seen decades of (in)action, dinners (a whole lot of food and drink up close and personal) and been Zak's and many of his predecessors favorite nap spots.  Not for the first time,  I came home empty handed.  I can't figure out how we got the one through the door that's there.  Now, everything is over sized, over stuffed and my house and hallway remain the smallish size of past taste.   Visions of hoists and chain saws keep flashing by, maybe a slipcover?


Thanks for the terrific pattern, J! And Happy New Year!

I love that scarf - thanks for the pattern!

Beautiful scarf. The magpie bits are perfect. Happy New Year, despite the work. At least it's not as exacting as the put-up.

Thank you for the pattern~ adding it to my queue!

Best of luck with the couch hunting, (I take it you will have Zak sign off for approval before you actually purchase something....)

Ooooh, comment spammers suck, Web design company in India!
You could try Ikea or one of those places. They tend to be on the smaller side, at least the pieces I've seen. They're not much to my taste, which makes me an outcast in my particular circle of friends, but it might work for you. (You could always make your husband learn furniture assembly and upholstery. Heh.)

oooo, pretty, pretty! I love it, beads and all! Thanks for the pattern!

Thank you for writing up the pattern! My "deconstructing" wasn't going too well. ;o)

Happy New Year!

The pattern is lovely - I shall make one this winter!

Thanks for the really lovely pattern. I have printed it already, and I think I will have to spin some yarn specially for it. Happy New Year!

Simply gorgeous. Now I just need wool to do it justice, and I shall attempt it soon!

(I just learned to knit cables. So exciting, all this knitting stuff!)

Thanks so much for posting the pattern.

Oooh! Thanks for the pattern. Got it queued up already. Now to rummage through my stash of yarn..... and find me some magpie beads :-) Good luck with the couch. Can you re-upholster the one you have?

Thank you for the pattern !
I went couch hunting myself a while ago and I agree, it's not easy at all !

I'll have to download and print the pattern.

I bought a slipcover for my loveseat. Just coz I got tired of covering it with a sheet (tho it made Norma laugh).

Thank you, thank you! I'm off to put this one in my Ravelry queue. I have some Sea Silk that I think would work beautifully.

Happy New Year! :-)

Thanks for the Pattern! It looks great with your Taconic too!

Thanks for the scarf pattern. I'm glad to know there's another person out there carrying the magpie gene. I think maybe it's a tad more dominant in my makeup than in yours though.

Read about the crest o wave scarf and it is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pattern. I went back in your archives to look at your shawls. How wonderful!!!! I was wondering about the "mystery shawl" How does that work and how do you sign up? Thanks for any help you can provide. I love lace, especially shawls. Pat
