Free pattern: Rippling Peacock Scarf

Rippling Peacock Scarf, free crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground Crafter

I love ripple patterns. There’s something amazing about the way the peaks and valleys materialize right off the hook.

There’s also something about ripples and stripes. The color changes highlight the peaks and valleys, so naturally, stripes and ripples pair well. Until, of course, you get to the ends. No one likes weaving in ends, and color changes mean more ends to weave in. But with Cascade Casablanca, you can let the yarn do the striping for you.

This stitch pattern isn’t just your standard ripple, though. There’s also texture because of the popcorn stitches, and a little eyelet action to give it a nice drape.

The yarn has a great texture and feel, too, because it is a wool/mohair/silk blend. The colors remind me of spring, which is always welcome during the dark days of winter.

And, as you can see, it’s wide enough for full neck coverage, and long enough for an extra wrap around.

    HI,
    I love this scarf, it is gorgeous! I spent hours trying to find it last night, on my computer, after having seen it on my phone, so that I could save it and print it out, so I can carry it with me to work on the project. I see so many ads in the same area with the pattern, so it would be kind of hard to copy and paste into a document, and no button for printing. Did I miss it? I don’t have any intention of sharing it, I am a designer myself and respect your work. I find lots of free patterns on blogs that don’t have any way of printing them, and I don’t get that. I can’t carry my computer around with me, and I often need to make some notes on patterns, so I would never use my phone, either, so I need to print it out! Can you please tell me how to do that here?

      Thanks for stopping by, Olivia. I don’t have a print button on my blog, but you should be able to print from your browser by clicking command P on an Apple or Ctrl P on a Windows computer. Once your print menu opens, you can select the pages you’d like to print. Let me know if you have other questions.

        Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I tried your suggestion on my Mac, but there is no way to know which pages to select, because there are no pages on the pattern. I tried to just print it out as is, but that would have been NINE PAGES, so I canceled that! Sigh… Thanks anyway. I have definitely seen printer friendly patterns on blogs, so I would suggest that for all bloggers who put patterns on their blogs. I really appreciate these patterns, as I do not have a lot of money. Thanks!

          Olivia, if you’re on a Mac, when you hit command-P on the lower left you will have the option to either “Print using system dialogue” or “Open PDF in Preview.” Once you select either option, you can scroll through the pages and choose the ones you want to print :).

            On a Mac you can highlight and copy (Command C) the whole article, open a Word document and then paste in (Command V). Then you just delete the bits you don’t need (eg ads) and hit ‘Save As’. You can even delete some of the photos, or make them smaller (by clicking and dragging in the bottom corner of the photo). I got mine down to 3 pages.
            You could most likely do a similar thing on a PC.

    Hi Olivia & Marie
    There is an absolutely awesome free browser tool called Print Friendly & PDF that I use a lot!

    Olivia, I’m not a Mac User (unless you count my iPad) but you can add a Print Friendly & PDF button to several different browsers – here’s the link https://www.printfriendly.com/browser_tool look for your favorite browser on the right and follow the instructions for installing it.

    Marie – Print Friendly & PDF has a WordPress plug in that is SO easy to install – https://wordpress.org/plugins/printfriendly/ I have it installed on 3 of my WordPress blogs that offer QuickBooks tips.

    Hope this helps you and others 🙂
