Wavy lace stitch pattern

Here's another pattern that caught my eye. As you see from the photo, it creates an interesting wavy structure. For some reason, when I look at it I imagine a long skirt. If the color is right it should look stylish :-).

Cast on a multiple of 12 stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Row 1 (right side): *purl 1 st, yarn over, SSK, knit 8 sts, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 2 and every wrong side row: work stitches as they present themselves (all yarn overs should be purled).
Row 3 (right side): *purl 1 st, yarn over, knit 1 st, SSK, knit 7 sts, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Row 5 (right side): *purl 1 st, yarn over, knit 2 sts, SSK, knit 6 sts, purl 1 st*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
