Wave Pattern: Help!

Wave Pattern

While cleaning up my knitting files, I came across this pattern that was given to me by Margot from the Fairview Library Knitting Group. I am in the middle of making a swatch, so I can see the pattern, but without clear instruction, I am not sure how to proceed.

The big question is: Do I go from row 9 to row 1 and repeat or do I go from row 9 to row 4 and repeat? I am leaning towards going to row 4, as it would follow the pattern set forth from row 3 to row 4. Can I get some feedback. I would be certainly appreciated. You can download this pattern here or wait until I have improved and included a picture of the swatch.

As Annette cleaned out the office to make room for more yarn at The Knitting Tree, L A, she was also cleaning up her project cue and gave me this cake of Shibui Silk Cloud. I had been very attracted to this yarn and was very gracious for the opportunity to finally work with it, so I decided to gift it back to the store and kick of the charity drive Annette is conducting during the month of October and November to knit/crochet items for donation to an abused women’s shelter.

I just love the color of this yarn. I used the yarn double-stranded and still the scarf is feather-weight. This could be due to the size 13 needles I decided to use. I did make a mistake which I wanted to fix and despite the big needle size, the hair still caught on each other, but with a little perseverance and patience, I managed to get back to the hole, fix it and resume.

The name – Wave by Oscar Peterson – is a random selection from my music library.
