A little while ago, I started crocheting a ripple blanket. I kind of gave up on it (sadly), and I didn't want to leave it just sitting there, incomplete, but didn't have enough time or wool to finish it. I had made a start, and decided to turn it into a Ripple Scarf! Today I am going to teach you how to make one, too!
• A 3.50mm crochet hook
• 4 different coloured balls of wool
• A needle to thread the ends in
• Know how to do the ripple stich (there is a great tutorial HERE).
Step 1 - Chain stitch a really long chain to the length that you would like your scarf to be. It can be any size you want. I did mine so that when I hold it up, it is as tall as me. NOTE: When doing ripple stitching, you have to chain in multiples of 14, plus an extra 3 for turning.
Step 2 - Do two rows of ripple stitching, and cast on another colour.
Step 3 - Do two more rows of ripple stitching, and then cast on the next colour.
Step 4 - Do this until you have used all 4 colours (a total of 8 rows).
Step 5 - Cast of, and thread all of the ends through.
Step 6 - Try it on!
It is really fun to crochet in Winter, and even more fun when you can wear it completed! I gave this scarf to my mum for Mothers Day and she has been wearing it a lot in the chilly weather here. It's also really great to make to practice ripple crocheting. It's so much fun, I hope you enjoy it!
