Crocheted Ripple Beret & Scarf

Crochet Project
Who said ripples are only for afghans? For this warm scarf we've combined the texture of the popular ripple stitch with alternating rows of color. The beret is worked in the round.

Hat

You will need:

  • 4-ply, worsted-weight yarn

Gauge:

  • Measuring across, 4 single crochets (sc) = 1"
