Wave Apron

You first saw this on my Wave Pattern post. At the time I did not know how it was going to turn out. On a whim, I made it into an apron.

So as you can see, I did a soft of half of Catherine Wheel stitch to fill in the wave. and added ties
I know this apron will get used a lot, I do make a mess when I cook and do the dishes.
Thank you large blue bean bag for being my model.

Road Trip Project

This past weekend I visited my daughters in Kansas. This means I started and finished a project during the car trip. It is a Salomon knot scarf.
I also wanted to share the monkey I finished before the trip for my grandson.

Monkey

I started on a new project, a monkey for my grandson. He loves monkeys and has been asking me to make him one. 
So here is his monkey almost finished.
I have to make the other arm yet and the tail. So far his ears are little crooked and one foot is bigger than the other. The arm is a little longer too. 

He is adorable though and unique. I might make him a banana too, I remember my grandson asking for a banana for the monkey.

So in other news, tommorow I go back to school, I am working on a certificate for web development.

The Wave Pattern

Today I am going to give you two different wave patterns. A larger wave for projects like afghans,  and a smaller wave for smaller projects like scarves or smaller blankets.



I had plans to make a poncho using a knitted wave pattern found in a vintage magazine. I decided that I wanted to crochet it instead. So I adapted the pattern for crochet. It worked out. This project won't be a poncho though, I did not make my starting chain long enough. It will probably just be a small throw. 

So here is the stitch pattern for the larger wave. 

Chain a number dividable by 30 plus 1.
Sc in second chain from hook and in each chain across, ch 1
Work in the back loops.
sc2tog = insert hook back loop of the next 2 sc, then work like a sc.

Row 1: sc2tog 5 times, *2 sc in the next 10 sc,  sc2tog 10 times*  repeat until you are at last 20 sc, 2 sc in the next 10 sc, and sc2tog 5 times. ch 1

Row 2: sc across, ch 1

Repeat these two rows for desired length, ending with Row 1.


Here is the pattern for the smaller wave.

Chain a number dividable by 18 plus 1.
Sc in second chain from hook and in each chain across, ch 1
Work in the back loops.
sc2tog = insert hook back loop of the next 2 sc, then work like a sc.

Row 1: sc2tog 3 times, *2 sc in the next 6 sc,  sc2tog 6 times*  repeat until you are at last 12 sc, 2 sc in the next 6 sc, and sc2tog 3 times. ch 1

Row 2: sc across, ch 1

Repeat these two rows for desired length, ending with Row 1.
