Crochet Chronicles

I went shopping in Mangalore with my crochet buddy Viraja and bought this lovely mustard Kurti/Tunic top. It was pretty on it’s own but needed something to sass it up….thus began my voyage into another bout of pattern hunting…..then I came across a a post by another crochet buddy Meena Krishnamurthy who had used this variation of the ripple stitch to create a lovely Afghan…..And while she had done hers in different colours I wanted a black…a jazzed up black….so I used bronze shaded seed beads to create a totally different effect.

Method

Think of how wide and long you wish the scarf to be. Then calculate the number of chains you will have to make for the required width plus 3 ch( the last part takes the work up to the next row.)

This one is calculated by multiples of 10 plus 1. because at every 11th stitch the ripple effect is created in the 2nd row

First decide where you want the beads to be in the pattern. Then calculate the amt of beads that you will need. String in the beads. Sometimes you may find it difficult to string in all the beads in one go and that is alright. String in as much as you can and then when you have done in the beads on the thread and but still need to add a few more, just cut the thread and stitch it in. String in all the beads that you need and then ss and continue.

Written Pattern

Row 1:

Chain in 131 plus 1…altogether 132; then sc in 131 chains.

Row 2:

^(Chain 3, *skip 1 sc, dc in next sc, 1 ch*,repeat ** 4 times; 2 chain, dc in same sc as previous dc( making a ‘V’ shape); Since a ripple effect in crochet s caused by peaks and dips……This causes the pattern to lift to  peak…..and the next set of stitches will cause the dip.

*sk sc, 1 ch,  dc in next sc*, repeat ** 3 times, sk 3 chs, dc in next sc)^

Repeat ^^ until the end of the row…….end with a dc.

I crocheted in the beads, here as I did this row…2 beads per stitch.

Row 3:

3 ch up, sk one ch, a dc  each in next the  8 stitches, 3 ch, dc in the same stitch as previous dc…..making a ‘V’….A peak

*7 dcs in each of the next 7 stitches, sk 1 ch, 2dc and 1ch; dc in each of the next 7 stitches;…….a dip……..3 ch, dc in the same stitch as previous dc…..making a ‘V’*.

Repeat ** until the end of the row….end with a dc.

Row 4:

3 ch up, sk 2 dcs; (dc in the next dc, ch 1) x 3; *sk one chain, one dc in the next chain, 3 ch one dc in the same chain as previous dc…A peak

sk one ch, ch 1, (dc in next dc,ch 1) x 3; sk 4 dc; dc in next dc, ………Dip………(skip one ch, 1 ch) x 3; *

Repeat **until the end of the row end with dc

Row 5:

Chain up 4, sk one ch, ch 1, treble in next dc; ch 1, sk 1 ch, treble in next stitch; ch 1 , sk 1 dc, dc in dc, sk 1 ch , ch 1, dc in dc;

Repeat Rows 1 to 5 until you get the required length.
