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.

Debbie

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?

Suzy Q

I found your pattern after searching for ripple afghan patterns and I loved it instantly! I printed it off and Im about 25 rows in and its coming out just gorgeous! I cant wait until its finished! I like your pattern much better than another ripple afghan I just finished because its wavy rather than V like. Thank you so much for creating this pattern!

Lena

Love it....so beautiful...and thank you

Hello Lucy, I've attempted the ripple blanket 8 times and every time, got it wrong. I counted those stitches very, very carefully. I did 213. Perfect. But...somehow, by the 2nd row, I was out of whack! :-( I realised I thought I had to do the last two trebles in the last of those four trebles! I realised it was meant to be done in the third chain of the three chain turning!!!! So, now I've started for the 9th time, I'm almost at the end of the first row and i think I'm going to smash it! Meaning, do it perfectly and do it well! Can you see that I'm smiling?? :-)))))))

Lucy, you are so-o-o clever. I love your explorations in design which are turned into beautiful items. Your ripple blanket is gorgeous, and I love your 'hooky trim' as well. And I've already made a 'blooming flower' cushion.
And your photographs of the countryside around your home are beautiful (as are the ones of Dorset). I particularly loved the one of your street at night - made me feel quite nostalgic. Please keep blogging forever!

I just love looking at all your beautiful blankets that you have made... I have even used some of your patterns to make a few of my own. I just love your website.... Keep it coming.

Hello Lucy,
Just finished my first blanket! TaaDaahh! Granny stripe with black picot edging couldn't resist putting in extra, strong colours. Driving to Wales today and starting my next blanket soft colours ripple, been buying odd balls of lovely stuff on ebay for ages, cheapest way to do it.
Thanks for the inspiration! Gill

Hi Lucy,
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your ripple blanket and adore your blog. I'm a novice crocheter and you have me so inspired!! I'm working on my own ripple blanket for my Little Person (using your Neat Ripple Pattern) and it's working along nicely....although the ripple is less pronounced then your's...more of a gentle wave. Am I doing something wrong?? Will the ripple pattern be more noticable as I do more rows? I'm using Rowan Luxury Cotton DK - perhaps that's making a difference?
Anyhoo..I still love what I've done so far and will just keep working at it :-D Thanks so much for all your inspiration xxx

Jackie

Hi,

I'm having such a hard time with this pattern. I am pretty sure I am following the pattern correctly, but my edges are wrong, and it isn't as ripply, more of a flat line... I'm so frustrated!

Karen

Lucy! What size hooky did you use please? thank you Karenxxxxx

Sun_Cloud

This blanket is so wonderful! <3 I spent the last three hours rummaging through your foto stream at flickr and I'm absolutely delighted by your bright, colourful, gorgeous home. Really great, one can literally see the joy you have in crocheting and baking and making everything so comfortable.

LUCY I AM VERY THANKFUL TO YOU, BECAUSE FOR MANY YEARS I HAVE TRYED TO FIND THE RIPPLE PATTERNS, BUT I NEVER COULD TO FALLOW DE INSTRUCTIONS CORRECTLY. BUT NOW WITH YOUR INSTRUCTIONS I COULD. THANKS A LOT. I HOPE MY RIPPLE BE SO NICE LIKE YOURS. THANKS AGAIN.

Dear Lucy,
I truly admire your work in general and this ripple afghan in particular ever since I bumped into your blog via flickr some 1.5 years ago. It gives me so much joy and inspiration seeing your beautiful crafts, flowers, pastries etc. I totally fell in love with this blanket, desperately wanting to make one myself and I've been gazing my eyes out for hours and hours trying to figure out what colours exactly you used. I hope I am not too demanding asking you to share this info with me. You said it is mainly Rowan Cashsoft DK and two Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK yarns. I think I have identified most of the colours but I'm not quite sure about some of them. Did you use 3 balls per colour? I would really really appreciate your help here. Since there is not one single shop selling these Rowan and Debbie Bliss yarns where I live, I would be really thankful for your advice before I order them online. If you really don't mind and if you could find the time, please let me know. (I could send you the yarn list I made via email so it would be less work for you, but I couldn’t find an email-address on your blog). You can reach me at flowersandyarns@yahoo.de. Thank you so much in advance and I hope to hear from you!! K xxx

Gema

Hi Lucy,
Your blog is great! Britt and you gave me back the zest of creating with crochet or craft in general. And baking? Oh my God! How very nice!!!!!!!
Thanks a lot for your love and everything else.

Help! I'm trying to follow your ripple pattern but I'm having trouble with the foundation chain. You say to use multiples of 14 plus 3 for turning. The size I want comes up to 210 (14 x 16) plus 3 for turning = 213 total starting chains...right? But...when I look at the stats for your ripple blanket, you say you started with 219 chains? What am I missing? I greatly appreciate your time and assistance...:) And, although I've never commented before, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog. I come back multiple times a day because I just can't get enough...:)
Hugs, Sarita in Oregon (a fellow Libra too!)

Hi Lucy...what a beautiful piece of loveliness you have crocheted. Just love it.
Can you tell me what size crochet hook you used for this project? I follow your blog and your talent...keep up the good work...you are an inspiration.
Blessings,
Dee
