Long, Red New Wave Scarf

This was a fun knit, watching the waves form, first on one side and then on the other.

New Wave Scarf, Oct. '09New Wave Scarf, Oct. '09It’s knit in the round with two different sized needles, one large and one regular (details on Ravelry).  To form the bumps, you insert a short row on the large needle side.  Following the pattern is an adventure on the first repeat, but after that it’s a piece o’ cake, walk in the park, float down a river, etc.

The pictures here suck.  My camera wasn’t seeing red very well today.  I tried indoors, outdoors, flash, no flash.  I just couldn’t get the details to show right.

  1. Hi Diane Scarf looks great, you'l be ready for winter with this one. Very cool pattern (hot pattern? it's for winter after all, lol).

    On the colour problem with your camera - 2 words - white balance -
    Look in your manual and find how to use white balance - what you want is the light to be properly balanced - in WB on your camera you should be able to choose Sun, Shade/Cloudy, tungsten light, and 2 or 3 fluorescent lighting situations. There may even be a single touch white balance option which will need a white card (for fancy folk). You will have to change your choice dial to something like P, not Automatic to use the WB. But in any case, you will have to use the manual to do your best to make sense of it.

  2. Interesting construction which seems to be perfect for a scarf. I'll have to try it sometime. Renate

  3. Thanks, Nigel. I found the white balance controls on my camera and took a better picture - it's on
