Vintage Rippling Scarf

I came up with this scarf because someone asked me to help them with an afghan pattern that they found on Ravelry.  I didn’t want to make an afghan, so I thought why not just swatch the pattern to learn it, and thus a scarf was born.  The original pattern is called Vintage Rippling Blocks and the designer has a great photo tutorial if you need help with the stitch.  I made mine with slow coloring changing yarn, but you can change colors as often as you’d like.  The options are endless.

by Jeanne Steinhilber

  • 1 skein Ice Yarn Magic Light
  • Hook size 5.0mm H
  • Yarn needle

To begin, you have to sort of create the first row.  Don’t give this a lot of thought, just work it step by step.

Row 1 – Ch 4, 3 dc in 4th ch from the hook; *ch 4, 3 dc in 4th ch from the hook; repeat from *4 more times.  You should have a line of 6 humps.  This if the first row of blocks.  Turn.

Row 2 – Ch 1, slst in first ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space, slst in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space, slst in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc all in the same space (peak made), slst in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space, slst in next ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space, slst in last ch 3.  Turn.

Repeat row 2 until the desired length.  Change colors as often as you’d like.  Try it in your favorite team colors.  Have fun and be creative!
