How can something that looks so hard to knit be so easy? Somewhere on a knitting machine site I saw a red scarf knitted with this technique and it was beautiful. Reference was made to the technique used being from the John Allen book called The Machine Knitting Book. I also saw it called the wave on a Facebook knitting machine group. I had a small ball of  yarn sitting around and decided to use it up.  It might be acrylic with mohair or wool with mohair. I know it feels scratchy around my neck but I wanted it for around a coat collar. I had this knit in less than a half hour on my Brother 940. Once I got into the rhythm , there was no stopping me. I did not want to crochet all the way around the scarf like the woman does in the video. I like the way it curls in and I don’t want to steam it flat. I like narrow scarves. I used seven sets of 4 needles. This video is excellent even though it is not in english.

If you look closely at the top picture , you will see seven strands of yarn between the sets of four. If you have more or less , you will know you made a mistake.  I even like the wavy edges when it is finished.

Here is the link to the video I followed. I hope you give it a try since it was a lot of fun to do.
