Knit with Aabhar – Wavy Scallop Stitch

Pattern Description

Wavy Scallop Stitch is a highly textured lace knitting pattern featuring garter stitches resembling waves holding a bunch of scallops stringed together.

It is a slightly tricky pattern as the number of stitches increases in every row up until row 7, which may make keeping track of the stitch count difficult. Make sure you keep that in mind while designing any projects with this stitch.

The Wavy Scallop Stitch can be modified to fit any project. It is a great stitch for knitting baby dresses and blankets.
