This crochet ripple scarf pattern is a stunner!! It’s so luxurious and on trend that you are sure to get compliments wherever you go. Using three colors of yarn for the ripples creates a gorgeous yet easy to achieve design. The yarn is carried up the side of the scarf so there is no fastening off and weaving in ends as you go … such a huge time saver!
I designed this scarf using three coordinating colors from Zen Yarn Garden’s gorgeous gradient sets. Although the set that I received came as a Quartet, I only used three of the colors so this pattern would be perfect for the Trio options as well. Hope you enjoy this crochet ripple scarf pattern!

Could you tell me which three colors you used of the zen garden string? I would like to make sure I use the same colors and am unsure.
