The wave stitch is a reversible lace pattern consisting of rows of garter stitch that rise and fall like waves. This effect is achieved by using extended drop stitches at varying lengths. By offsetting these stitches on alternating rows, the wave like pattern is created. It’s a beautiful design that’s relatively easy to make.
Use this for scarves, shawls, and throws.
