Gentle Waves is a new design by Kieran Foley that is both lovely, unique, and very simple. 

****

Please get your pattern directly from the designer on his Ravelry page hereWe are simply offering you a choice of two colorways to knit this in.

The Design

I will copy here what Kieran says about the piece:

An easy-to-knit lightweight scarf or shawl with drop stitch mesh rippling between garter stitch ridges.

The transparent waves are inspired by sunlight sparkling on shallow water, and the constantly evolving color changes in the Schoppel Wolle yarn provide plenty of visual interest.

Techniques include dropped stitches and simple increases and decreases. The pattern includes notes and photos to explain the dropped stitch technique, and instructions for making a small swatch if you’re new to the technique.

Yarn and Colorways

Kieran also writes,

The sample was knit on 3.25mm/US3 needles with approximately 120g/320m/350yds of Zauberball Stärke 6, Colorway 2429 Tapetenwechsel, Change of Scenery.

We have some beautiful colorways of Zauberball Starke 6 to offer here today.  They are neither of them the same colorway as his original but I think they are gorgeous melodies of color.  

The Zauberball Starke 6 is a sport weight 75% wool/25% nylon blend with 437 yards (400 meters) per 150 grams (5.29 ounces) ball (already wound for you). 

1.  Camouflage is a blend of colors that include those of forest and sky, with blues and greens and browns plus a touch of cream (for the clouds perhaps).   (Sorry, sold out)

2. Zimtschnecke (Cinnamon Bun) is very rich and deep colorway.  It doesn't go overboard and remains mostly cool tones, with rich wines, deep blues and navy, golden coffee and ginger, 

***** 
Kieran says he used about 80% of one ball of yarn.  This made a scarf/wrap that was about  136cm/53.5in x 45cm/17.5in.  Thus one ball will give you enough yardage to continue knitting a longer project if you so choose or you could get two and really have a long piece.
