How to Crochet a Simple Ripple Scarf

I wanted to make a scarf which would match the hat that I previously made a tutorial for, so here’s my latest tutorial for this scarf.

DSCN0692Obviously, we’re going to use the same yarn that we used for the hat.  I used the Loops & Threads Impeccable Big! yarn, which allowed me to create a hat and two scarves.  From this line, I used the Earth color.  This scarf is really pretty easy to make, and it’s much simpler than the hat.  I used the same hook, 5.50 mm, or I9.

If you would like the holes of the scarf to be smaller, you can use a smaller hook.  Also, if you use the 5.50 mm hook, there’s a chance that when you get to the end of the skein, the scarf will not be long enough.  I often have this problem when I make wide scarves, so I usually buy two skeins of the color I’m using just in case.

If you created or looked at the hat I had made recently, you’ll be familiar with the pattern used.  To begin, start by chaining seventeen times.  Double crochet once in each of the first three chains.  Next, double crochet three times in the next chain.  Double crochet once in each of the next three chains.  Now, skip two chains and double crochet once in each of the next three chains.  Double crochet three times in the next chain and double crochet once in each of the following chains.  Chain once and turn.

DSCN0701Now that you have turned to work with the next row, double crochet once in each of the first three stitches.  Double crochet three times in the next stitch and double crochet once each of the stitches that follow.  Skip two stitches and double crochet once in each of the next three stitches.  Double crochet three times in the next stitch and double crochet once in each of the following stitches.  Chain once and turn.

You may notice that there were leftover stitches at the end of the row.  There will actually be leftover stitches in each row.  This will give the scarf that ripple effect on the edges, rather than having a straight edge.  Now you can repeat the above text in bold until the scarf is the length you want it (or until you run out of yarn).  Once completed, perform a slip stitch in each of the remaining eighteen stitches and fasten off.

Once you get the hang of it, you’ll see that this is a really simple scarf to make.  Depending on how long you want it, it shouldn’t take more than a few hours.
