Half Double Fern - "Frothy Waves"

  • I've been repeatedly tweaking a variant of Walker's "Double Fern" in an attempt to get a frothy-wave-type pattern. I have a couple of those experiments here on Stitch-Maps. With this variant, I used 8 row blocks in this one instead of 16 row blocks, so that's why I called it "half-Double Fern-lette", because this one is only 8 rows per block, rather than 16 rows per block.
  • The 8-row version does seem to be more wavelike than the 16-row versions. Now I need to knit it up...

Shown with a cast-on count of 34 stitches.   Getting chart...
