Pattern Description:

This Seaman's scarf features sailboats floating on the crest of the waves of the misty sea! Knit this for your seafaring spirit!

The first part of the scarf knits up quickly from the bottom up with its fun and easy rippling waves pattern stitch to start! Next, the eyelet framed sailboat motif is worked following either a chart or written out row by row instructions. You again work the rippling wave pattern stitch and then you finish with the easy ribbing for the neck. The ribbing is worked only in the first part of the scarf. When you work on the second part of the scarf you will find it works up even faster, you join the sides together and you're done!
