What you need to know

Learn how to knit wave stitch with Siân Brown’s elegant pattern, knitted in DK yarn

This stunning shrug by Siân Brown features wave stitch, an undulating pattern created by dropping stitches that you'll love trying. To do it, you simply wind the yarn a certain number of times around the needle and then knit the next stitch. You then knit across the next row, dropping the extra loops to create this lovely wave effect. Finish the look with a cute knitted rosette.
