Materials
The wave fan is a specific edging stitch, so you'll probably want to use the yarn you made the rest of your project with or a yarn which matches or contrasts with what you've already done. The stitch is suitable for any type of yarn. You'll also need a hook appropriate to the yarn you're using (check the manufacturer's band for suggestions), scissors and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.

Insert hook into 3 ch from beginning ch3 and sl st. Ch 1 and turn work again. Now work 7 dc into the ch4 loop. Now work 1 dc into next 4 sts. Ch4, turn, sl st into post of previous 7dc/4ch fan.
