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.
