This is my latest project, a repeating wavy design in greens and browns, 'Aussie' style colours.
I made a Flora de Flora for my daughter's wedding gift, but she prefers a simpler style, so I've gone back to a relatively simpler style of project.
I love this design and have used it a number of times in various projects, including my hot colours stripey blanket.
It is tempting to add different patterns, but I have to hold myself back to consider my daughter's preferences. I have however, indulged myself with some intermittent 'texture' stripes including loops, tufts and chain tabs to suggest grasses, pebbles, wildflowers and such like.
The yarn is mostly acrylic, some half and half in order to extend the colour range. I've used a 4mm hook, to keep the fabric fairly firm to withstand stretching over use and laundering.
The wave pattern is just 2 repeating rows, repeating over 14 stitches.
Row 1: (RS) *3dc, 1htr, 2tr, 5dtr, 2tr, 1htr* repeat to end, change colour if desired, otherwise ch1, turn
Row 2: dc in each stitch to end, change colour
Row 1: (RS) *3sc, 1hdc, 2dc, 5tr, 2dc, 1hdc* repeat to end, change colour if desired, otherwise ch1, turn
Row 2: sc in each stitch to end, change colour.
