Ripple Scarf Pattern
This super ripple scarf pattern perfectly matches the ripple hat
on the picture. What a wonderful set for a Christmas gift.
Worked in worsted weight yarn you'll need 6oz. I used size I/9 5.5mm hook. You can use any weight yarn and appropriate hook size - just remember - finer yarn/smaller hook = narrower and shorter scarf - thicker yarn/larger hook = wider and longer scarf.
The ripple scarf pattern finished length is 68 inches including the fringe at both ends, the width is 7 inches.
The gauge is 16sts x 6 rows = 4 inches over ripple pattern. Ripple pattern is in multiples of 10 stitches + 1 stitch. If you want a longer scarf, add 10, 20, 30 more stitches and work the same pattern (add "1 more time" per each extra 10 sts, ie. rep 19 more times for 213 ch, rep 20 more times for 223 ch, etc.). If you read through the pattern you'll see what I mean. NOTE - first 3 ch on first row = 1 dc. Also - turning ch2 always counts as first dc, therefore you will not work the next stitch into the same space. All ch1 spaces are counted and must not be skipped when working (dc into next X sts).
You will need to know... chain, single crochet and double crochet,and slip stitch.
- ch - chain
- dc - double crochet
- dc(3)tog - double crochet (2 or 3) together
- rep- repeat
- sc - single crochet
- sl st - slip stitch
- yo - yarn over
How to dc2/3tog - double crochet (2 or 3) together...
Yo, hook into first stitch, yo, pull through to front, yo, pull hook through 2 loops only (2 loops left on hook), *yo again, hook into next stitch, yo, pull through to front, yo, pull hook through 2 loops only *(3 loops left on hook), for dc2tog - yo, pull hook through all remaining loops now. For dc3tog - rep from * to * once more (4 loops left on hook) then yo, pull hook through all remaining loops.
And now to the ripple scarf pattern...
- Ch203, dc in 4th ch from hook, *ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, 3dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc3tog over next 3 sts, rep from * 18 more times, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, 3dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc2tog over next 2 sts, turn.
- (You will be working in the ch loops as well as the dcs from the row below) Ch2(counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in next 4 sts, *3dc in next st, dc in next 3sts, dc3tog over next 3 sts, dc in next 3sts, rep from * 18 more times, 3dc in next st, dc in next 4sts, dc2tog over next 2 sts, turn.
- Ch2, sk 1, dc in next st, *ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, 3dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc3tog over next 3 sts, rep from * 18 more times, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, 3dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc in next st, ch1, sk1, dc2tog over next 2 sts, turn.
- Rows 2 and 3 form the pattern. Repeat rows 2 and 3, 4 more times for a total of 11 rows worked. Do not break yarn - continue as follows.
- Ch30, join with sl st to end of scarf row 6 (forms draping loop of chs), ch30, join with sl st to end of scarf row 11, ch30, join with sl st to the point where rows 5 and 6 join, ch30, join with sl st to where rows 10 and 11 join. Continue in same manner alternating joining ch30 draping loops to the end of each row and at the point where each row joins the next, for a total of 17 loops, ending at the starting corner of row 1.
- Sc along foundation ch, working 2sc in center st of each 3dc group, repeat fringe instructions as per previous row across short end of scarf, then sc along last long edge, sl st to first st of fringe, break yarn, finish off ends.
And there you have your ripple scarf pattern - simple.
Try a single color like this one or maybe try a contrast paneldown the center - change the middle 5 rows to another shade of the same color family or go for something brighter.
As an alternate fringe - try ch30, sl st into next space all the way across the end of the scarf. That would give a more traditional look rather than the draping you see on this ripple scarf pattern.
The choice is yours - use your imagination as I did mine to create this pattern. Create, explore, enjoy!
