Wavy in chart form:

Being that this will be my first chart, I got a little blurry eyed looking at it, but also noticed that there are only 40 stitches across on the chart, and the pattern is for 42 -that may also be where some of my confusion lies! I can't seem to figure out going one way for right side, and the other way for wrong side. I guess if there was a more distinct pattern I could recognize where I was a bit easier, but I'm lost in the knits and purls!

Jumping in..

I've been working on my Wavy scarf since the start of this month, and am just starting the final repeat. It's been a really fun project to knit, plus it's taught me (a beginner) how to alternate between knit and purl stitches. Plus everyone who sees it looks so impressed. The current scarf has already been "bagged" by a friend, and her husband wants one in grey to match, so that'll be starting up as soon as I finish this one.

I've used Cascade 220 in 7812, which is kind of a kelly green - a lot of blue in it, but somewhat less than the photo below shows!

This was the "halfway" point of the scarf, about 2 weeks ago:

I think I'm going to add an extra 4 rows of the k3p3 row 1 at the very end, just so that it matches the beginning of the scarf. Anyone else do anything like this?

Anyway, glad to be part of the blog/KAL.


Question on Wavy in Chart Form??

I saw the wavy pattern in chart form and screamed with joy! But, when I looked at it, I have a question. In the paragraph below the chart it reads: "The key to the chart is at the top. The RS (right side) is the odd-numbered row, while the WS (wrong side) is the even-numbered row. To read this chart, start at the bottom of the chart with row 1. You read row 1 from left to right. This goes for all odd-numbered rows. Once you get to row 2, you read the chart from right to left. This is the same for all even-numbered rows."

but, when you open the chart and look at the top for the key, it indicates that teh Odd rows are read R to L and even rows are L to R this is opposite as to what is in the blog itself. Just wondering if anyone has used the chart, and if they did, which way they used it! :)

Thanks! I am hoping to start tonight using some Brown Sheep worsted in a beautiful bright purple. I'll post pics once I get going.
