Ripple Strips Throw

Designed By: Marianne Forrestal

Skill Level: Easy

If you can crochet a scarf, you can make this throw! It is just like making 5 scarfs and then sewing them together. Use the same colors as in our photographed throw, or colors that suit your own space and style.
RED HEART® Soft®: 3 balls each 9440 Grey Heather, 4420 Guacamole, 4680 Black and 2 balls 4601 Off White
Susan Bates® Crochet Hook: 5.5 mm [US I-9]Yarn needle

Throw measures 45” wide x 55” long (114 x 140 cm)

GAUGE: 5 rows in pattern = 4” (10 cm); 23 sts (center of one wave to center of next wave) = 4½” (11.4 cm). Each Strip = 9” wide. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
