    It looks great. You could use the same pattern to make a scarf.

    • Yes, Teje had the idea to make a cowl. It would make up really fast and it’s nice and chunky so would make a perfect scarf too 🙂 Hope your knitting is going well!

    It looks amazing Avis. The colours are fabulous together. Think I may have a go at ripple myself. Makes a real change from Granny squares. Have just finished a knitted jacket and am sewing up another sweater I completed a few weeks ago so there is nothing to stop me having a go at a ripple throw. You can really see how gorgeous it is on the pictures of it over the chair. How big are you going to make it?

    • It is really easy! Once the first two rows are done you don’t need to think about it. Two things the pattern doesn’t tell you…..
      1. Use a 4mm hook for DK yarn.
      2. Make the foundation chain with a 5mm hook as it needs to be slack..
      I’ve bought 16 x 100g balls and will use all of it. I started with 311 chains which gives 21 ripples. It is 70 inches long and should finish at 56 inches wide.
      Go for it. I’ll send you a link for the yarn if you want 100% acrylic.
      My least favourite part of knitting is the stitching up, YUK! Good luck with that 🙂
