Gentle ripples on the water, or vibrant waves of color — it’s all in the choice of colors used to crochet the Mystic Ripple Scarf. A simple double crochet chevron pattern with a touch of subtle texture creates an easy project for unisex wear.

Double crochet stitches in an easy ripple-stitch pattern are enhanced with subtle touches. Working in the front loop only or back loop only every few rows adds highlights to the movement of the stitch pattern.
It’s easy enough for just-beyond-beginning crocheters, yet interesting enough to maintain the attention of more experienced crafters.
Use a gradient pack of sport-weight yarn as shown, odds and ends from other projects, or a color-changing yarn. The pattern is easily adaptable for any size yarn and hook.
You’ll need about 80 yards [73 m] of one color and about 65 yards [60 m] each of four other colors. In the sample shown, I used a 5-skein gradient pack of Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter sport weight (100% superwash merino, pack of five skeins, each 1 oz [28 g], 86 yd [78.5 m]), Color Morph #42 Slithy Serpent.
There are so many wonderful colors of this yarn, I may have to try another colorway!
