This pattern wants to form nice waves at the cast on edge. I blocked this with blocking wires and yet you can still see the arching in the bottom edge. It’s a pretty edge but keep it in mind when designing with this stitch. The bind off edge is straight.

    Very nice, need to try this one too! I bet it would look interting in a varigated yarn.

    Wow, blocking does wonders for this stitch. This is one of the nicest examples I’ve seen. The Silky Wool really suits it.

    I’ve been eyeing this one for a swimsuit cover-up. Nice to see it swatched.

    Very pretty. This would make a very lovely shawl.

    Agreed, this stitch would make a lovely reversible shawl.

    I love Seafoam Pattern because technically, it’s all garter stitch, and who doesn’t love garter stitch? But it’s also lacy, and who doesn’t love lace? :D

    I also like that this is a very algae-y color like you see on rocks at the beach. Very nice.

    I have a question about row 7 of this pattern. The repeat is for 10 stitches, but on this row, the additional stitches are K1 and then K1 at the end. This is 10 +2 stitches, rather than the 26 stitches on the other rows. (The pattern is a multiple of 10 plus 6 stitches.) Please tell me what to do with the remaining 4 stitches on this row! Thanks very much. I really appreciate your help!

    (Row 7: K1, rep from * of Row 3, end last repeat k1 instead of k6.)
