How to Knit the Wave Stitch

How to Knit the Wave Stitch- a lacey stitch that’s easy and fun to knit!

How to Knit the Wave Stitch

The Wave Stitch is fun to knit and it’s ideal for lightweight throws and shawls. It looks complicated, but it’s actually simple to make. It’s created using a series of knit stitches and YO (yarn overs). If you’re unfamiliar with YO, it is a technique in which the yarn is passed over the right-hand knitting needle. 

I included a video tutorial to show you how the wave stitch is created. 

(Note- I used Lion Brand Mandala Tweed Stripes in Dragonfly for this project)
