Mary Ellen had a great idea – using a single repeat of the Eyelet Ripple Afghan for a scarf. The problem with a ripple is that the two ends are opposite to each other, and for a scarf, she wanted the ends to be the same.
I don’t think this is a perfect solution, but it’s what I came up with. Maybe some other readers would have some ideas.
I think the beginning ripple is the most attractive for a scarf, so my idea would be to make two halves and meet in the middle. I made a small insert to fill the resulting hole. The three sections would have to be sewn together like granny squares. I made my insert as follows:
Ch 6. Dc in 4th ch from hook. 5 dc in next ch. In first chain do all of the following – 2 dc, 2 tr, 1 dtr, 2 tr, 2 dc. Rotate to do 5 dc on the other side of the 2nd ch from the beginning. In the next chain do 2 dc, 2 tr, 1 dtr, 2 tr. Join in third chain.
The two panels would be joined at the first two dc and ch. The dtr on either side would join to the next dc. Then each stitch would be joined stitch by stitch.
