Free Pattern: Vintage Fan Ripple Scarf

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.


Crochet Diagram

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.

  1. The instructions states in step 6 repeat Row 2 – 3 times and step 7 states repeat Row 4 but in the diagram and video it states repeat Rows 1-4. I am confused should I follow the instructions or the diagram. The diagram follows the video.
