DIRECTIONS:

GAUGE
1 ripple = 3" (7.5 cm) measured from peak to peak.
7 1/2 rows = about 4" (10 cm)
BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Bobble (worked all in one stitch) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), *yarn over, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) (Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

PATTERN STITCH:
Bobble Ripple Pattern (worked over a multiple of 9 sts + 8 sts)
Row 1: Ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in next 3 sts, *(sc, bobble, sc) in next st, sc in next 3 sts, sk 2 sts, sc in next 3 sts; rep from * to last 4 sts, (sc, bobble, sc) in next st, sc in next 2 sts, sk 1 last st, sc in turning ch.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sk first st, sc in next 3 sts, *3 sc in next st (top of bobble), sc in next 3 sts, sk 2 sts, sc in next 3 sts; rep from * to last 4 sts, 3 sc in next st (top of bobble), sc in next 2 sts, sk last st, sc in turning ch.

NOTES:

* Hat and Cowl are worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-st “peaks”? and skipped st “valleys.”? Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each rnd aligned. 3 sts are worked into the center st of peaks, and sts are skipped over valleys.
* The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it's important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
* When working in ripple crochet, your piece may not lay flat until you've worked a few rows.
* To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Do not cut yarn. Carry color not in use up side edge of piece, twisting the yarns every RS row to prevent long loops.
