This week is all about ripple basics. Most ripple newbies struggle with one of three things: increasing, decreasing, or changing colors. Not to worry! This week’s Ripple Mania PDF includes photo tutorials for all three!
If you’re a ripple pro, there’s still something for you. I included patterns for three ripple stitches, tips for sizing your final project, and instructions for my Eyelet Ripple Infinity Scarf.
