Woodland Scarf Finished

I recently finished this Woodland scarf. I had gotten the pattern off the Internet a few years ago. I had made this once before but there isn't a picture on the pattern I saved. Hmmm, thought it did. Anyway, the pattern I have does contain a source that the pattern came from and it is Columbia Minerva Learn to Crochet book, 1976You start out by making a square and then crochet a "ripple" down 2 of the corners. You can see what I mean from the pictures. I really like this pattern except that the edges tend to curl a tad bit but I did a bit of smoothing with my fingers and it seems to work. This is a completed Christmas present.

  1. Pretty scarf and it sounds like a neat pattern. Hope you are having a great Monday! :-)

  2. oh pretty banner, love the nostalgia...pretty scarf, I'm not to good at ripples for some reason..I just learned how to granny ripple over the summer, once you get past the first 2 rows it is an easy pattern. Thanks for stopping at my place. The muff....and matching headband..wern't we stlish.? I wish I could be sure they were cherries..maybe they were roses...they were red, such a special time wasn't it.

  3. This scarf is very pretty. I may try to decipher how to do it after the holidays...so much on the hook now. I like the look.

  4. I probably wouldnt do well with this since ripples is involved I just cant do that or I do something wrong, I tried a ripple dishcloth awhile back and I gave up LOL thanks for sharing though yours looks great and I think it is neat it starts with a square.

  5. I would love this pattern, is there anyway you can print it? I have looked all over the web & can't find one like it. Thank you
