Free Pattern: Undulate Scarf


I've had this pattern ready to share for a while, but I needed good pictures to go with it. Today was the day I got that done, so, without further ado, a new free pattern for you, just in time for the changing weather and for the holidays, if you're in need of a soft, warming gift for someone!


I named this scarf "Undulate" because that's what it does, the pattern gently going back and forth yielding a subtle serpentine. I made this one from Malabrigo Merino Worsted (it only takes one skein), so it is incredibly soft. I didn't block it because I liked the squishy feel of it as it was, but if you wanted to block it to open up the width, you certainly could.

(By the way, if the yarn looks familiar, it may be because it was the same yarn I used last year for one of the pairs of Fast & Easy Fingerless Mitts featured with that pattern.)


Undulate


Edited: An error was brought to my attention in Row 8, which is now fixed. It should say "Repeat row 6." If you printed this pattern out prior to 1/2/09, please make note of the change. Thanks, and sorry for any confusion!

A gratuitous photo of my daughter, just because I think she's pretty, but then I'm biased. LOL
Actually, she was a little annoyed by this point, because she was cold and it was snowing,
and I kept saying, "Just one more!"

Malabrigo is my favorite yarn. I can't wait to start this scarf--it's a perfect pattern--not too easy, not too hard! (saw it on Ravelry)

Beautiful model, beautiful scarf! Saw it on the Daily Chum - it's in my faves now.

It's summer here, so I've popped this in my favourites for when the weather cools down a bit. Your daughter has the most amazing hair.... I'm envious!
