I figured out how to knit this.
|4 nld repeat, creates this soft wavey effect|
|I love the noro colours, how they appear while you knit|
|a very easy pattern !|
I used needles nr 8, to create a soft loosely knitted scarf.
I cast on 28 stiches (My 28 stiches formed 20 cm, a good width for a scarf )
Knit a few rows (I did 4)
then the pattern repeats itself in 4 rows.
row 1 : knit
row 2 : knit 2 (creates a ribbed border) purl to the last 2 stiches, knit 2 (creates ribbed border on other side)
row 3 : knit 2, K2Tog, K2Tog, 4x (Yarn over, knit 1) , 4x K2Tog, 4x (Yarn over, knit 1), K2Tog, K2Tog, knit 2.
row 4 : knit
You repeat these 4 rows as often as you like, until the scarf is the lenght you desire. End with a couple of knitted rows to create a ribbed border.
Because of the knitted stiches on both sides, and the knitted borders at the beginning and the end of the scarf, it will not curl , but stay flat. You probably won't even have to steam of block it.
Another plus is that you don't have to purl a lot in this pattern. I don't like to purl, I prefer to knit. How funny is that ?
Because I wanted an extra accent in my scarf, I used a different wool for the rows 1 and 4. They form a wavey rib, in a different colour. But you can use the same wool of course, but you might need 3 skeins of wool then. You could even use a very different wool altogether, to create a more accentuated wave.
It is a very quick and easy knit, I finished it in a couple of evenings.
For the duch speaking people : this is the translation of the pattern :
Zet 28 steken op (ongeveer 20 cm) en brei enkele naalden rechts.
Het stekenpatroon herhaalt zich over 4 naalden :
nld 1 : brei rechts
ndl 2 : brei 2 steken rechts, 24 st averechts, brei de 2 laatste rechts.
nld 3 : 2 st rechts, 2 x 2 steken samen breien, 4 x (1 omslag, 1 rechts), 4 x 2 steken samen breien, 4 x (1 omslag, 1 rechts) , 2 x 2 steken samen breien, 2 rechts.
nld 4 : brei rechts
Brei tot de gewenste lengte, brei dan enkele naalden rechts en kant af.
Veel plezier ermee !
