Who needs another reason to buy Scheepjes Whirls? Yes? You’re welcome then. Here is a one Whirl pattern to create a light, airy and eye catching scarf. Perfect to take the chill off those autumn (fall) days.
Another free pattern? What? Who am I?
Don’t be fooled. These are patterns I made up a while ago, as evidenced by my pregnant belly (Lewis is now 1 and walking!). I have actually since sold this scarf, but I figured it was a lovely pattern to make so why not put the pattern up on the blog as well as it being on my Ravelry shop for free.
Please do not publish or share this pattern as your own.

This pattern does benefit from blocking when completed to help the piece lay flat and the spaces to open-up. It helps to give the piece a professional finish.

Row 2 (RS) – Ch 1, SC in first DC, *ch 5, [sk next sp & skip the next 2 x DC], working in front of the next ch-sp, sl st in the next ch-sp from 2 row before, ch 5, [sk next 2 x DC & ch-sp], SC in the next DC in the current row, repeat from * across, ending with a SC in the 3rd ch of the turning ch4.
Row 3 (WS) – (This row you are working in both the SC from row 2 and the DC from row 1.) Ch 1, SC in 1st SC, *(ch 1, sk the next ch-sp 2 rows below, DC in the next DC from row 1) 4 times, ch 1, SC in the next SC in current row; repeat from the * across, turn work.
Row 4 – Ch 1, SC in the first SC, *ch 5, [sk next sp & skip the next 2 x DC], working in front of the next ch-1 sp, sl st in the next ch-1 sp 2 rows below, ch 5, [sk next 2 x DC & ch-sp], SC in the next SC in current row; repeat from the * across, turn work.

Repeat pattern rows 1-6.
I repeated the ‘wave’ pattern rows to create a 2 wave, 3 wave, 2 wave pattern. This involves repeating rows 2 & 3 one extra time to create the third wave.
Continue this pattern until you reach your desired length, or the end of the whirl.
I hope you enjoyed making your very own Lavender Waves Scarf and I would love to see your creations!
