Hi there Lucy, I have a question for you but appreciate you are a busy lady with a family so won't be offended if I don't hear back. Anyhoo, I managed finally (it's caused much frustration and tears) to crochet a ripple for my little bean due in December. I really wanted to finish it like yours, ie with the border with the long Dc's but can't for the life of me work out how to do the very final round (the one you did in blue, except mine will be purple. If there is any chance you could help I would be so grateful, love and light Kat xx

Lucy, I love your site soooo much. What a wonderful designer you are! I have made your Granny Stripe Blanket using your Stylecraft Special DK yarn and love, love, love it. I plan on making your Cosy Stripe Blanket and Cottage Blanket with the Stylecraft yarn packs also because I really like this yarn. But first I simply must make the Ripple #2 Blanket ahead of them all because it just simply can't wait! I am going to use the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarn from Wool Warehouse. But the color numbers do not match, so I am having a problem matching colors. Why is that? Also, is it possible to get your color scheme? I am not a designer and want to make it exactly like yours. Please, please help me!

On my fourth ripple blanket and am doing the interlocking ripple one. Already falling in love with the colours I've chosen. Thanks for keeping me out of mischief Lucy.

I wanted to thank you for your inspiration. I just finished a blanked similar to yours, after 1,5 year of work. This was a real journey and I'm so proud of me. I layed it on the floor and sat just to watch it for about 15 minutes ahaha !! All I have to do now is to make the edge...
Your blog is awesome, thank you.

Zarnaz

OMG! Beautiful! So many ripply rows!! There must have been hundreds of tail ends to weave in! That's the only reason I avoid making a blanket... How did you tackle all those tails?

Lucy, I am trying your colorful wavy ripple for my granddaughter. I have had a few problems and have started over four times . I had six rows done. My v's and a's were not lining up. I am not going to give up. I am going to take a break . My desire to do it and learn what I am doing wrong is taking over to obsession. Ha ha . Just do not want to let go and let it beat me. It seems easy when I follow your great instructions. My granddaughter picked your blanket out over all we looked at. I have made baby sweaters for her
When she was under a year old and they were beautiful. I know I will get the ripple. I love it. Thank you for sharing the love.

Donnis Bauman

Please just finishing the granny ripple blanket, I purchased the 17 colours attic 24 yarn, soon I'll be crocheting the edge ,,can anyone tell me how much yarn I will need for Working Lucy's edging, any idea ?
It's looking fantatastiic, hopefully a silver wedding anniversary present for son& daughter in-law.

Nicola Dickenson

Well i finished my ripple blanket for my daughter. This has been daubed the University blanket, stitched with love by mum to keep her warm and cosy while away. Started as a single and ended up as a double... :)

Thank you i love the pattern. xx

Claire Robins

Thank you so much for sharing your ideas. I just used your edging idea to finish my first ever blanket and have had the pleasure of watching my little girl having her breakfast 'picnic' with her toys on it - hopefully the first of many!!! Going to start on a mandala now! x

Corine van Wijk

Very, very pretty.

Mamie Hockenberry

This is absolutely stunning work! Bravo!

Mindy

Can someone please email me back the patten to this "interlocking color ripple:Tah:dah" I've been over and over this column, wondering if the pattern is here and I'm just not seeing it!?
Im familiar with the "Neat Ripple" pattern, however I'm unsure on how she is interlocking the colors? I know she states 1double & 2singles. I'm just very confused with how she interlocks the colors. And is she only going through 1 stich when she double crochets, (to bring out that pop up look) can someone please email me back with any useful tips please! I desperately want to start this blanket! This is my second email, & I haven't heard from anyone, I know and understand it's a busy life, so for anyone to address this, thank you so kindly:) I love this blanket and can't wait to start it. Thanks again, Mindy

Claire

I am so glad I found your site. You are so talented, I love the way you use color. Thank you so much for sharing. I always found ripples take me forever (am not a fast crocheter) but you have inspired me to try again.

Mindy

I'm absolutely in love with this patten (Interlocking color ripple) its stunning!your color choices are beautiful. I wish I was able to get such a variety of colors! I'm wondering where can I find this patten? I'm working on crocheting a blanket from your pattern (Neat ripple) right now, which i love & thoroughly enjoy:) However I'm intrigued with the interlocking of the different colors, so I would love to get the pattern!!! Im new to your page, and have enjoyed learning your patterns. Your talent is amazing! So it could be right under my nose, Lol;) & I'm just not seeing it. If you haven't posted he pattern can you please direct me where to go to get this patten?

Silly Little Sheep

I love the way you work with colours!! I made a baby blanket for little someone lately and I also loved working on it!! :) Little people can use blankets for all sorts of things, they have such rich fantasy! :)

It´s gorgeous, but i like too the squared on that shows in the 2 last pictures under the foot. Did you made it too? do you have a pattern of it?
Thank you

Sk

I simply love the way you play with the color schemes...it's amazing :)

tina pinzone

Hi, sorry one more question, on a double size afghan, using the Stylcraft acrylic that you do, and nine colors, how many skeins of each yarn should I order? i would like to do a border as well. thank you so much for your time.

M Jenny

I love this pattern. Thanks so much for sharing your experience.

Debbie Evans

Wow, what a wonderful blanket. I'm new to crochet and to ripples, but inspired by your blog, I've just started a ripple baby blanket. I've just used 5 colours and thicker ripples, but it's already looking good. Thanks for sharing your ideas and know-how.

Tess

In love with the colors!!! & the pattern!!

Ellen Kay

I found your blog a couple of months ago after being inspired to take up crochet again after a few years break. I decided to have a go at your ripple pattern to make a blanket for my 2nd baby, due at Easter, and I've just finished it today. I'm SO pleased with it. The colours, the pattern, the way the edging just frames it beautifully. I can't wait to snuggle baby 'Wiggles' in all those lovely wiggles! Thank you for your patterns and tutorials, and the lovely peeks into your colourful home!
