The Ripple is Done!


I finished making this last week



I felt a bit lost when this ripple was completed, I enjoyed making it so much it went everywhere with me and I was quite sad when it was done. 

Gentle Ripple shawl.

I enjoyed making this because it was so easy and rhythmic and I loved how the colours all went so well together. 



I know there are lots of ripple patterns out there but I liked this one because it was a gentle ripple with not too much zig in the zag if you know what I mean.



it's a peaceful ripple. If anyone would like to make one like mine I will write the pattern for you please just say.


It measures 110 x 48 cms 


The tassels are 5 inches long and it took 280 grams of yarn.

This shawl is going to Sue at SIBOL  you can read all about it here
SIBOL also has a Ravelry group you can find it here

The pattern is now available for the shawl you can find it here

I love making these easy shawls because you can be creative and make them in any stitch you like and it's not too big so you won't get bored with it.  I'm making another already in another lovely pattern stitch and..... 

it's a great way to use your stash.

  2. It's beautiful! I love the colors, so soothing. Yes, please, I'd love the pattern. I enjoy making shawls and wraps, and I like how your ripples are less ziggy and zaggy than most. Great finish! I know it will be well appreciated. Take care :-)

  8. I've been making scarves like mad and thinking about needing something new to work on. Shawls is a great idea! I'd love the pattern, but I'm not sure if UK instructions will make sense to my USA brain, you know? Still - I've done lots of chevron stripe afghans, so maybe its just a slight variation????
    Yours is stunning! Love the color combination.

  10. Good Evening Linda, Your shawl is beautiful, I love the mixture of pinks and grey... so lovely. I would ask for the pattern, but to be honest, I don't think I would be able to do it as it looks very complicated. I know what you mean about finishing a project which you have enjoyed doing. I find that when I finish a quilt, once finished, I have to wait a little while before I can begin another.... the enjoyment returns after a while, as choosing fabrics and cottons is always an exciting prospect.
    Best Wishes

  12. It is lovely Linda! I like the combination of the colours and when you combine them with the ripple, it all just seems to blend really well. You must have busted loads of your stash this month already with all the things that you have created. I wonder what the totals will be! xx

  19. Lovely shawl, Linda!! The color combination is perfect :) did you add the tassels separately or created from loose ends ?

    1. Thank you Preeti, I made the tassels separately and tied the loose ends in pairs, then added the tassels where the pairs were so they all merged together. :)

    1. Thank you Pammy Sue, yes you are right but in this case I had another shawl project in mind and went straight on to that, I'm not loving it as much as I did the ripple but it's going to be pretty too. :)

  21. Linda thank you so much for making this wonderful Shawl for SIBOL.
    It certainly is a beauty.
    I love making ripples and this pattern is very pretty indeed.
    They grow so quickly. I'm sure it will be lovely and warm for an Elderly
    person in this chilly weather.

  23. If you've taken the time to write up the pattern, I think I'd like to try it. If there's anything I need to know to convert it to US instructions, let me know.
