* ripple scarf

Posted on January 4th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Crochet.


Here’s a post from the wayback files: I wrote the draft in 2007!  I have a bad habit of forgetting to take pictures of gifts I’ve made.  I was at my sister’s house over Christmas and got a chance to take an action shot for this poor forsaken post.

Back in September I made a post complaining about my inability to knit a chevron scarf. Well who needs knitting anyway! Crochet was made for ripples. This has been my airplane project, with a plastic hook since I got a metal one confiscated by security this summer :( It’s made with a self-striping sock yarn, gotten back when I had delusions of knitting socks. I started with a basic ripple pattern from an old crochet pattern book from the library and modified it to end on a half repeat to better match the dye spacing of the yarn. It’s not perfectly even stripes, but it was a hell of a lot easier than changing yarns. Anyway, it’s for my sister.

    Very pretty!! I really like the way the colours come together in this pattern.

    Oooh! I love! I’ve never used sock yarn because making socks terrifies me. I really like the scarf. What’s the basic pattern?
