Cables without Knitting Cables
The swatch really looks like you’ve knitted cables, but they’re all just increases and decreases!
The back and forth zig zags give some great movement to the piece!
Not a Big Impact to Gauge
Unlike some more-complicated cables, these waves won’t make a big difference in the gauge.
This is both because there are a lot of stitches in between each Wave, and also because it’s only moving 2 stitches.
I Made It More Me
I love having Wrong Side rows as rest rows. But, the stitch pattern in the dictionary had you working the increases on the WS rows.
Since I don’t like that, I changed them to be worked on Right Side rows.
Row 1 (RS): K3, p1, k2, p6, k2, p5, k3. (22 sts)
Row 2 (WS): K8, p2, k6, p2, k4.
Row 3: K3, (pfb, k1, ssk, p4) × 2, k3.
Row 4: K7, p2, k6, p2, k5.
Row 5: K3, p1, pfb, k1, ssk, p4, pfb, k1, ssk, p3, k3.
Row 6: (K6, p2) × 2, k6.
Row 7: K3, p2, pfb, k1, ssk, p4, pfb, k1, ssk, p2, k3.
Row 8: K5, p2, k6, p2, k7.
Row 9: K3, p3, pfb, k1, ssk, p4, pfb, k1, ssk, p1, k3.
Row 10: K4, p2, k6, p2, k8.
Row 11: K3, p5, k2, p6, k2, p1, k3.
Row 12: Repeat row 10.
Row 13: K3, (p4, k2tog, k1, pfb) × 2, k3.
Row 14: Repeat row 8.
Row 15: K3, p3, k2tog, k1, pfb, p4, k2tog, k1, pfb, p1, k3.
Row 16: Repeat row 6.
