Stitch Pattern:  Wavy Rib (from Mon Tricot Knitting Dictionary 1030 Stitches and Patterns)                             modified for working in the round         multiple of 6

             

Rounds 1-6:  *P4, k2*

             Round 7: *P2, sl 2 to cn and hold to back of work, k2, p2 from cn

             Rounds 8-12: *P2, k2, p2*

             Round 13:  *Sl 2 to cn and hold to back of work, k2, p2 from cn, p2*

             Rounds 14-18: *K2, p4*

             Round 19: *sl last 2 p st from previous round to cn and hold in back of work, K2, p2 from                   cn, p2, sl 2 st to cn and hold in back of work, k2, p2 from cn, p2

             Rounds 20-24:  repeat rounds 14-18

             Round 25:  repeat round 19

Cast on  60 stitches. Place stitch marker to mark beginning of round.  Join to work in the round.  Work pattern stitches through round 25.  Repeat rounds 20-25 to desired length (height).   To bind off I used Elizabeth Zimmerman's Sewn Bind off.  (Click for link to Knitty.)   It gives a stretchy bind off which will be helpful when pulling this over your head.  Use tapestry needle to weave in ends.  Blocking I feel is unnecessary with this type of accessory, but you can if you like.
