While its warming up where I live- in New South Wales, Australia- it’s cold somewhere.  So if it is autumn where you are and heading to those cold, winter- possibly snowy- months, it is time to start thinking snuggly, cosy scarves. So with that need in mind, in this tutorial, I am going to take you through how to make your own Ripple Stitch Scarf.

The Ripple Stitch Scarf is a classic, long and straight scarf, with a difference. The ripple, or chevron, crochet stitch creates a beautiful texture to your crochet. It looks gorgeous when used with single colour yarn, fantastic in a stripe pattern, and varigated or cake yarns love it.

The classic long scarf style will easily be incorporated into your autumn/winter wardrobe. The trickiest part with making this scarf is choosing the colour(s) you want it in!
