Wave and Box Stitch

This pattern and the ones that follow it are "double-ended" patterns, which means that they arc not always turned at the end of a row, but sometimes there will be two consecutive rows on the right side or two consecutive rows on the wrong side. To accomplish this, it is necessary to do the knitting on a circular needle or a pair of double-pointed needles when working back and forth across the piece. In round knitting, of course, there is no necessity to worry about which strand is dropped on which end of the row, because at the end of a round the knitter can choose cither strand to continue.

In Wave and Box Stitch, the stitches are slipped to the other end of the needle after every even-numbered or B row, so that the A strand always follows the B strand.
