Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I had no problem with the pattern as written except for the odd (for me) assignment of even numbers for right side rows and odd numbers for wrong side rows. I rewrote the pattern to have their Row 2 be my Row 1 etc. all the way to Row 20 -- Row 19, then shifted their Row 1 to the top of my pattern to be Row 20. I did leave the first row of WS knit as a setup row after casting on but thereafter refer to it as Row 20. I've attached a photo to make it clearer, I hope. I've completed four pattern repeats so far using Yarn Bee's Rainbow Wrapsody, US5 needles and the results are very pretty.

Hmm, my attempt to upload a .png file showing the chart modification failed several times. I hope my verbal description is clear!

Trying as a .jpg...

trying one more time...If this site still won't upload my photo, please reply to this comment if you'd like me to send you an image of my modified chart.

original pattern is here http// == ipple-scarf.html?id=194652

that link doesn't work. for original pattern go to and search for lofty ripple scarf

May I kindly ask where the amended version to this pattern is as I would greatly appreciate it, and others too, I am too would like to tackle this cowl. Thank you from an OAP wishing to extend her skills to pass on. MAY THIS BE A HAPPY TIME OF YEAR.

go here for original pattern http// == -scarf.html?id=194652

sorry that link didn't work. when i pasted it in before it got garbled. go to and search for lofty ripple scarf. make sure you use the word lofty not lacy.

I agree that there is something wrong with the pattern. Starting with Row 7....????? would love to make it also.

go to and search for lofty ripple scarf

I've made this and row 7 is correct as written. The entire pattern is based on an 18 stitch repeat, after you subtract the stitches outside of the brackets, you are always working on the middle 72 stitches, 72 divided by 18 is 4, so the information in the brackets will be repeated either 4, 6 or 8 times depending which row you are on. I know this is really late and the pattern may have been updated since your original comment, hope it helps someone. Happy knitting.

Is this pattern correct? I attempted it a few times and it doesn't work out. The scarf is beautiful and I'd like to make it. Thank you.

for original pattern go to and search for lofty ripple scarf

All so neat lovely, TY! G
