Kawaii Ripple Scarf

I don't know what it was that made me realize that I had not rippled in years, but I think it had been that long since I've actually checked out this blog and drawn inspiration from all the wonderful projects shown here.

My latest is a scarf that is also inspired by this Kawaii trend that i noticed on Etsy. That is, brightly colored, super girly, often sparkly accessories and what not.

(That's me modeling the scarf)

I made it using Red Heart yarn and a size N Susan Bates hook. I think the thing about ripples that makes them so easy for me to forget is the TIME that's needed to complete something like an afghan. But, with a large hook, small project, and WW yarn- I had this scarf done in a few hours.

It's as bright (if not brighter), but a bit cooler in color, as pictured here and will be listed in my Artfire Studio when I'm done editing the photos for it.
