About the Wave stitch

Prepare to be obsessed with the crochet wave stitch!

I love it because It’s a stitch that adds a magical touch to your projects, creating a beautiful ripple effect that’s simply amazing.

With each stitch, you’ll watch as waves of texture are formed before your eyes.

Whether you’re crocheting a cozy blanket or a trendy accessory, the wave stitch will give your creations a sense of movement and style.

In this Scarf, I was all into the sea view from my bedroom window, and the sea foam is the ruffles

Let’s get to the pattern, shall we?

Materials Used

  1. Bravo Gizem 100gr, 97%soft acrylic 3%viscose 1 skein
  2. Alize Burcum KlasiK 100gr, 210mt- 0/5 skein

Stitches Used

ch = chain

dc = double crochet

Sc = single crochet

Hdc = half double crochet

Tr = treble crochet

st = stitches


The inspiration for this  Seashell Scarf came from the view from my bedroom window facing the Mediterranean Sea, the changes of colors, and the foamy waves. It took me a while to figure out how to make that feeling and I think the ruffle wavy foamy edges are perfect!

Of course, you can as always adapt this pattern to your color palette, maybe a fall earthy spicy or a citrus orange lemon, or maybe a marshmallow pink!

Just enjoy the making!

This Scarf is made in long rows that make the main rectangle body and two identical ruffle edges that make the ends.

The body is made by the long shell stitch which is a 3 rows repeat 

To obtain the Shell pattern it is best to use two colors but not a must!

On to the instructions:

Foundation chain:  ch 167 or any multiple of 14 +2 to your choice of length (color A)

R1: Sc in 2nd st from hook, Sc 1 in next st and all the way across to end of the row, ch 1 and turn your work.

R2: Sc1 into 1s st, Sc into the next stitch, Hdc into each of the next 2 stitches, Dc into each of the next 2 stitches, Tr into each of the next 3 stitches, Dc into each of the next 2 stitches, Hdc into each of the next 2 stitches, Sc into each of the next 2 stitches. Repeat all across  to the end of the row, turn


Make sure you count your stitches, this is the first repeat row of the pattern, ch1, and turn your work

Next R3: Sc 1 in every st from the prev row in the same color A, at the end of this row change to color B . 

With your color A, insert your hook into the final stitch, yarn over, and draw up a loop. Drop your color A, pick up your color B, and place it on your hook. Draw a loop through. You will now be set to begin the next row in your color B.

Continue With color B, chain 3 (counts as treble crochet), and turn your work.

R4:  This row will be the opposite of Row 2 so we get the whole wave patterns

Tr1  into the next stitch, Dc into each of the next 2 stitches, HDC into each of the next 2 stitches, SC  into each of the next 3 stitches, HDC  into each of the next 2 stitches, DC  into each of the next 2 stitches, TR into each of the next 2 stitches. Repeat this pattern all the way across to the end of the row, Ch 1, and turn your work

Check your work: you should have a treble on top of a single Dc, HDC, and so on….

Now R5: Sc1 in every st from prev row

Repeat R6-13: repeat rows 2-4 changing colors every 2 rows

Last one R14: Sc 1 in 1st  from hook and all the way across to end of the row, fasten your work and cut the yarn

Make sure you end the body with the same color on both sides.

You can, of course, add rows to make this Scarf wider, repeat the 3 rows pattern and end with an Sc row that gives the work a nice frame.

Continue the Sc across the short sides of the scarf to form a complete frame. We will work the ruffles over those stitches

The Ruffle edges

R1: Pick up one color in my case it is color B, insert your hook in 1st sc from the frame at the corner of the narrow side. Make sure you are working on the right side of your work, ch 3 which counts as 1st Dc, Dc 1 in every sc from the prev row. In my case, I had 20 st. ch 3 and turn your work

Next R2: 1st  Ch 3 counts as 1st st, Dc 1 in the same 1 st, Dc 1 in next 2 st from prev row, Dc 2 in next st, Dc 1 in next 2 st and so on to the end of row. This is the beginning of our increasing rows to form the ruffle effect.

Repeat R3-5: Ch 3 counts as 1st Dc, Dc 1 in the same 1st st from prev row, and Dc2 in each and every st to the end of the row.

You will see the waves and ruffle as you add st in every row!

You are done!!!!

Fasten your yarn and cut your yarn, Repeat the same at the second narrow side of the Scarf!

Weave all your ends and Enjoy!!!!
