Your ripple blankets, which I love all of them,
are absolutely beautiful!

I have only made baby ripple blankets for my
grandchildren, nieces, nephew's children and now
for my recent birth of my great-grandson and my

Now, I want to make one for my adult and only granddaughter and I want to make one like yours
but I think all in one color of yarn.

Thank you for your patterns and I will continue
to follow your website.

Hi Lucy, I love this blanket. Do you make them to sell by any chance? If so how much would one cost? Kind regards, Wendy, Western Australia.

O beautiful what would you suggest for first blanket first try am a learner can do chains but not so even on my own without pattern. Thank you this is for my son in law he wants to crochet so bad

Jenny Pretorius

Well done Lucy. Your blanket is so gorgeous. I just wish you'd give us a chore roster as well. You seem so organized and I find that before I know it, I m way too tired to crochet. How do you manage your time so well?
Very Best Wishes and kind regards
Jenny in South Africa.

I absolutely love this afghan. How do I get the pattern, other than buying the book? Thanks for your help.


I love all the colors. :).


Hi Lucy, your work is really beautiful! You have inspired me to make my own ripple blanket, but in starting on the second row, I've noticed my ripples have flattened out! Could you please help me figure out what I've done wrong? I guess I would otherwise have to unravel and start again - nooooo!

Thanks in advance :)


What size hook did you use for ripple blanket in baby cash ? 4mm or 3.75 ?

Crochet Diva

What size hook did you use for the ripple blanket? US please.

Susan Janes

Want to thank you for your crochet ripple tut. Very clear and helpful. (The decreases were foxing me..)

Joy Penaskovic

Hello! Did you use an H hook?!?

I've never crocheted anything in my entire life, but I want to start now. This is the most beautiful blanket I've ever seen. Sigh.


so nice colors everywhere in your house, on the lamp, on the blanket, so I enjoy so much ! next time I will try the waves in crochet just for an draft may be a little bag but I wil be back with more free time . thanks for all pictures and your clever tuto!


Amazing! Must try it soon.hope I get it right.Is it similar to chevron st? Tks and you look cute.


hello! i love your blanket! i am doing one with the pattern of (10) dc's, dc3tog, (10) dc's, 3dc etc. etc. and was wondering how i could edge this?? i want the blanket to be square i'm assuming i would have to build up, maybe start with a st, sc, hdc, dc, htc, tc but that's only 6 stitches and i have 10 rows so i'm confused!!!! any ideas would be very welcomed!!! thanks so much!


Hi Lucy
I'm sorry to say, I really didn't believe you when you said your blanket was "Soothing, rhythmic, creative, exciting, fulfilling, fun" but (now I've got my foundation chain right) you were telling the truth , what a fab pattern you've written ! I know I'll enjoying every hooky moment just like I did with the granny stripe ... I can't thank you enough for getting me crocheting again :)
You're a star !

Claire Taylor

Hi Lucy, absolutely fabulous blanket congratulations on finishing it! What a work of art, truly a family heirloom if ever I saw one! Once I've finished my granny square blanket, I'm going to try out this pattern, I've only just learnt to crochet, with lots of help from your very clear tutorials. Thanks very much & keep blogging I love reading them. Claire x


Just beautiful..just so very beautiful..wish I had your talent for picking colors. You are very talented. I plan on making one soon, but without your color pattern I don't think it will be near the beauty of yours! By the way you are beautiful too..bet it's all that joy in your heart. :)
I'm stil working my way through your blog, what an oasis in my day..thank you so much for it! Hugs!!


Hello Lucy!
Your blanket is simply gorgeous!!! When I saw it, I wanted to have one for myself. So I crocheted the last 2 months like blazes and yesterday I finished it! Maybe you want to have a look, you can find it her: http://dieehefrau.de/2012/04/18/ozean-welle-ocean-ripple/
Thank you for your inspiration!

I do not understand the second row in the ripple afghan..can you help?

Samantha Forintos

I have a few questions about your beautiful ripple. If you have a moment, you can contact me at sforinto@nmu.edu.


You are so talented and the directions you give are amazing. My mom taught me how to crochet and since she passed away I haven't picked up any yarn. When I read your directions it was like my mom was sitting there giving me help all the way. Thank you!

Victoria Catchings

Wow, I love your projects but this is great! I'm making one, but my problems getting the sides straight! Any tips?
