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 http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kms-rippleshawl.html.

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″.
