Very Easy Ripple Shawl turned Throw
Created By: Diana Arencibia

This was my second major project and the biggest project I've done to date. I wanted to make a throw for my best friend as a wedding gift but I wasn't happy with any of the throw/afghan patterns I found here. Either they were too difficult or I just plain didn't like them. I ended up browsing the shawl patterns that I could modify and ended up loving the Very Easy Ripple Shawl. It IS very easy!

I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Fisherman. I would definitely use a different yarn the next time I use this pattern; the Wool-Ease T&Q is really too thick for this pattern as the throw is very heavy and the pattern cannot support it well. It is very warm but I don't find it to be too hot.

As per the pattern, I cannot express enough how much I love it. I knew I wasn't ready for a more complicated pattern but I also wanted something very classy, very pretty and this pattern gives it. It's such a breeze and works up so quickly! I will most definitely be making the shawl in the Microspun Yarn, as it's intended, but keeping a look out for other yarns that would capture this pattern well, such as Moonlight Mohair or other lighter yarns.

As per the yarn, Wool-Ease T&Q, I love it! It's so soft and warm and really easy to work with. It comes in so many different colors that the possibilities are endless! I look forward to making more things with this yarn, especially living in Rochester, NY where it gets so cold!
