A crochet Simple Ripple Scarf. The name says it all! An easy-peasy rippled scarf in double crochet.
This is the most relaxing scarf pattern ever, which you will be able to crochet almost without thinking.
You know those snuggly evenings on the couch, with some yarn, and chocolate, crocheting like crazy while your brain is in sleep mode?
And then, when you switch your brain back on, you might find yourself with a beautiful and soft scarf in your hands. Not bad, isn’t it?
Plus, this scarf could make a very beautiful Christmas present for a family member or a friend!
Scared of Crochet Ripple Stitches?
Crocheting ripples implies increases and decreases.
Now, while increases usually don’t scare anyone (you just make two stitches in the same place, right?), decreases can be the scariest thing in the world, especially when you are just starting out.
But don’t be intimidated!
I took step-by-step photos to guide you through each step and help you finally master double crochet decreases!
So, I pick up two cakes of Concept Setakid Moda by Katia or an equivalent yarn of your choice, and let’s start crocheting this simple ripple scarf!
For this pattern, the yarn choice is key. As with every simple stitch pattern, the yarn texture, colors, and details will add extra beauty to your finished project.
Thus, I suggest you choose some nice variegated/cake yarn that also feels fluffy and soft.
