Rippling Arctic is a simple cowl crocheted in the round. The main stitch pattern only uses two of the most basic crochet stitches: single crochet and chains. The Tunisian crochet ribbing is worked around each opening of the cowl with a regular crochet hook (no special Tunisian hook required).

This cowl is also part of a two-pattern ebook, Winter Sailing.


  • Sock by Malabrigo, Light Fingering/3 ply, 100% merino, 440yd (402m) per 100g skein, shades 063 Natural (С1), 474 Caribeno (С2), 1 skein each
  • Crochet hook: US G (4mm)
  • Two stitch markers
  • Yarn needle to weave in ends


  • 5 ch-5 sps and 24 rows = 4” (10cm) x 4” (10cm)

Gauge is not crucial for this design. The measurements listed are guidelines.

The size of the cowl can be adjusted by using thinner/thicker yarn or making a shorter/longer base row and working fewer/more row repeats.

The pattern assumes basic familiarity with Tunisian crochet, specifically how each row is worked as two separate passes and how to work Tss and Tps. Find Tunisian crochet glossary at

The pattern has been tested and professionally tech-edited.
