There are lots of great patterns out in the world using the ridged ripple stitch and the original ripple stitch.
I designed this pattern to use the fabulous combo I brought at Spotlight '4 Seasons' Stallion 8ply mulit braid. This pack had 18 colours at approx. 10g or 23mts each.
As you can see I used the white to break up the colour blocks so technically I used 17 colours for the main blocks. There was not enough white from the braid, so I had to buy a ball os '4 Seasons' Stallion - white 8ply to complete the scarf.
If you have some in your statsh or you are using all your scrap yarn for this project you will need around 30g or 60mts of white.
If you want a PDF of the Colour Block Ridge Ripple Scarf pattern you can purchase it via my shop at a small price.

Mine was 152 rows in total using 17 colours + white. Leftover yarn can be used for the fringe or tassels, or just leave it as it looks good without it to. Here’s a great video link on how to make tassels by Darby Smart
For the fringe, workout how long you want the fringe to be then double it and add 2cm. Fold it in half, put your hook through the chain or stitch where you want the fringe, pull the yarn loop through so you have a loop on your hook, then yarn over with both strands and pull all the way through the loop on your hook. Using your fingers, pull tight on the ends to secure. Do this as many times as you like to get the look you’re after. Combine multiple strands in the one stitch to get a thicker look.
That’s it, your all done. WooHoo!!!
