Watery Ripple Scarf

Today is a big day for my Watery Ripple Scarf ~ because today is the day that it get’s it’s very own BiG Moment in blog land ~ a kind of show and tell if you like.


My Watery Ripple Scarf started out life as a test run of the very lovely Attic 24 Neat Ripple Pattern and it just evolved very easily into a scarf. I used Rowan Pure Wool Double knit in the following water inspired colours ::

Glacier 005

Pier 006

Marine 008


It was my very first time rippling and I really do have to say that once I got started I LOVED it. I did not, however, like trying to crochet in to the foundation chain for the first ripply row! That was really difficult and I am so very glad that I only had 31 chains to battle with! Maybe if I start now I might get the first row done for a ripple blanket this time next year! I may be missing something but I’m sure there must be an easier way to do it.

Anyway ~ here it is!


The BiG Moment for my Watery Ripple Scarf.............


I really do love my Watery Ripple Scarf and I really do LoVe the water inspired blues and greens too. It is also such a joy to wear and it had it’s very first outing into the big wide world this morning as I wore it for doing the school run and it kept me very warm and very cosy indeed :O)

That is absolutely lovely! Even here in France I would have been glad of it: it is finally wintery here.

Great job. I know that first row can be tough. But, now that you have the scarf down... Move onto a blanket... I promise you will not be disappointed.

Head over to my garden. I have a Ta-Da of one today.

It's lovely. Well done x

I love it. I'm doing one also in KnitPicks palette yarn, so nice and skinny yarn. I hate that first row too. There must be a better way, but I don't know what it is.

I love this so much because this is exactly what happened to me! I did a test patch in rainbow colours, a friend of mine loved it and low and behold it's almost a finished scarf :-)

I love your colours, both this one and the pink, when mines done I might make myself one in blues or purples
