e’s Serenity Ripple Scarf

What more is a free crochet ripple scarf pattern to inspire life and excitement by the way of a Mystery Crochet ALongs (CALs)?!  Special thanks to fb Crochet Lounge participants of this CAL.

The Serenity Mystery Scarf is easy enough for a beginner with no increases or decreases, and challenging enough for a beginner with the introduction to treble crochet (TR), foundation single crochet (FSC) and front post single crochet (FPSC).

Would you like this shorter as a cowl or neckwarmer?  Visit the Serendipity Ripple Cowl or Neckwarmer pattern!

  1. PLEASE create a video tutorial for the beautiful Serenity Ripple Scarf and Ripple Cowl. Awesomeness! Thank You!

  2. Greetings, I’m reading the pattern instructions before I start and would like to know, what does the “#” symbol mean?

    • Dearest Belinda:

      Rep from * to ** ending last repetition in #

      The # is simply an indicator of where the last repeat would end. The pattern could have been written with the entire section from * to # again for the last repetition, but becomes longer and repetitive. The # is to let the crocheter know that they will be ending the row before the end of the repeat. ♥

      • Thank you ever so much for responding! I started the Serendipty Ripple Scarf and had my stitches far too tight! I do not mind taking them apart and getting the balance right. ~And thank you for creating a video for the scarf. The visual will definitely help me and others. Bless You!

        • ♥ Belinda:

          I’m a tight crocheter myself. If you would like the finished fabric to be softer/more malleable, you may want to try a hook size up :) As far as the ripples after the fpsc rows, they will look ‘off centered’ but it will all line up (it’s because we’re going from post stitch to stitching into the top of the stitch.

          • Alright then. Very well. I will try a hook size up. Your advice makes sense to me. Now my stitch work will lay flat and won’t look like scrunched up roller coaster track! Most appreciative of you!
