- Mexican blankets
- Ripple crochet
- Triangular shawls
So why not combine it all I thought! And her she is: The Serape Ripple Shawl!
My granddaughter loved the shawl so much as you can see in the pictures and asked me to make her one in her favorite color. So I also made a smaller one, in pink!
About the yarn
You can use any yarn you like with matching hook size! I had lots of Merino soft by Scheepjes left overs which I used up in this shawl, with hook 5mm. I used 650 grams in total, so 13 balls should be enough, but I used 38 colors to get the serape effect. You can get Merino soft here at Woolwarehouse. Using a good hook like a Clover hook will make a huge difference, Clover Amour is my favorite hook anyway but especially with yarn that is a bit splitty, I couldn’t do without my Clover hook.
Pattern Serape Ripple Shawl
- about 650 gr Merino soft for the big one and 250 gr for the small one.
- Hook: 5 mm
- Clover Tassel maker
Measurements (without the fringes):
The big shawl measures; long side about 220cm, point 85cm. The small shawl measures; long side about 107cm, point 45cm.But you can make it as big or small as you want.
Abbreviations US terms:
ch-sp chain space
dc double crochet
dc2tog double crochet 2 together
NOTE: Work on right side only. Leave long ends and beginnings (about 16 cm), you will hide them in the fringes.
Chain an odd multiple of 12. For the big one I chained 348, which is 29 x12 chains. For the smaller one I chained 180, which is 15 x 12 chains. Make sure you chain an odd multiple of 12! Otherwise the point of the shawl will end up differently.
From now on repeat row 3 – 6 and end with a row 3,then:
For each fringe cut 10 threads of 30 cm and knot it around the 2 chains at the beginning and end of each row.
