Project Inspiration: Greetings Scarf

Posted on

     It's one of those sit back and let the yarn do the talkin' projects. The Greetings Scarf is as simple as lacey patterns can get, and the thick & thin tape yarn is the perfect choice to add loads of texture and visual interest.

The Greetings Scarf is a free pattern, and despite that long generous length- you only need 2 skeins of Ripple to complete it... Since Ripple is only $10 a skein, this project will bring you to a grand total of $20.

Yet another affordable project to keep in mind for gift knitting!

     Other than short sections of garter stitch on each end, the Greetings Scarf is an easy 1 row repeat for the entire length. You'd hardly even know it- because the dramatic texture in Ripple really takes the design to the next level.

     Not only does the Ripple look fantastic- but the cool cotton is slinky, smooth, strong, and has a gorgeous amount of luster. That silky shine from the mercerized cotton catches natural lighting, and the fun uneven texture reflects it in all directions- so the scarf almost shimmers with every movement. 

     The Greetings scarf is a simple design- and it's also quick to knit! This scarf is knit on US size 10 needles, which accentuates the stitch pattern's open and drapey look. 

     Like all of our shop samples- the color we chose to knit with is the first to sell out. While I'm sorry to say we no longer have this bright orange- there are so many other opportunities that I think you'll still love! My personal favorites would be Aqua, Amber, and Watermelon.

    Hi Marla! While I am not as familiar with crochet stitch patterns as I am with knitted stitch patterns, I am sure that there is a pattern out there that would have a similar look. There is nothing to stop you from trying it out! One thing to keep in mind is that since crochet uses more yarn than knitting does- your scarf may end up a few inches shorter unless you purchase and use a 3rd skein. Enjoy!

    Hello
    I love the look of the ripple cotton.
    I see that this scarf is knitted..Greetings scarf..
    Possibly…could this scarf be crocheted similarly using the beautiful ripple yarn?

    Thanks
