Crochet Vintage Fan Ripple Scarf
Learn how to crochet this exquisite vintage stitch called the Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch. I crocheted a scarf using this same technique for stitches. I also have a diagram and more to show you how to do it.
The scarf has 3 sets of stitches. In the instructions below, I share with you about the sets. This is the Vintage Fan Ripple Scarf pattern.
I used 3 balls of Safari by Miss Tricot Faliti of Italy. Here is a link for this yarn to view.
The scarf is 6 feet long. It has 24 fan rows all together. The ending has 3 rows of single crochet across to balance it.
For my version, I used 4 mm or Size G… the yarn was 3 – Light or Double Knit. I have to locate this yarn to figure it out. I’ve not had luck finding it online.
So let me give you some resources to help you. Firstly, here is a crude crochet diagram I made to show you where the stitches fall into place when making this stitch. You are welcome to print off this diagram if it helps you.
- The pattern consists of 4 repeating rows. Rows 1 – 4. The chain is just to get you started.
- When creating your base chain, keep the counts in multiples of 9. Once you get to your desired width for a chain, add 1 to the chain so you can single crochet 2nd chain from the hook and keep your project in balance.
- Use a yarn and hook that compliment each other. You can refer to yarn band label to see the suggested hook size to go with the yarn.
Chain in sets of 9 until you get to the desired width. At the end of the chain add 1 more chain.
- SC 2nd chain from hook and then SC in next 3 chains. * 3 SC into next chain. SC into next 8 chains and repeat * across. Final 4 chains will be 1 SC into each. Turn.
- Ch 1, skip 1st stitch and SC into next 4 sts. * 3 SC into next st. SC into next 4 sts, skip 2, SC into next 4 sts. Repeat * across. Final 4 stitches will be 1 SC into next 3 stitches and then SC 2 TOG for the final. Turn.
- Repeat Row 2.
- Slip Stitch 2 stitches, then CH 6. Triple Treble (TTR) into next 2 stitches. * 3 TTR into next and then 1 TTR into next 3 stitches. Skip 4 stitches, 1 TTR into next 3 stitches, Repeat * across. Final stitches will be 1 TTR in 3 stitches. (You will notice the TTR do not extend all the way to the end of the row. This is what we want.)
- If changing colour, this is where you would do it before doing the next repeat rows.
- Repeat Row 2 – 3 Times.
- Repeat Row 4.
- Continue to repeat steps 6 – 7.
- To keep it balanced, ending should be repeating step 6.
The tassels 3″ long. There is 10 strands of 7″ strands folded in half and secured.
The tutorial is showing 4 sets. The scarf is only 3.
