Very Easy Ripple Shawl

Image of Very Easy Ripple ShawlThis was a long project. Not so much because it took a long time to knit, but more because I was knitting two other projects (a sweater for my husband and another for my sister) at the same time and this one took “a back seat”. I started my wrap in August of 2006 and finally finished in February of 2007.

This shawl is a great first lace project, so I’ve been told, and the free pattern can be found at

Don’t let the ripples scare you as this truly is an easy pattern. Basically, two rows are knit with a third being purled. Only one row out of a repeated pattern of four has any variety. After knitting something this long, I looked forward to the “funky” row. It made the project interesting, yet not too challenging. I’m looking forward to knitting this again in a nice burnt orange alpaca that has been waiting for just the right pattern.

Knitting Stats:

  • Needles- I used a size 6 needle (Addi Turbo circular, as usual).
  • Yarn- A nice Frog Tree blend of 85% pima cotton and 15% silk, sport weight. Color- 830
  • Number of skeins- 6.5
  • Final length- the pattern calls for 60″ but I made mine a little longer and went for 66″.
