Hi Lucy, Cant wait to start a ripple cushion and throw, I hadn't crocheted for a couple opf years until I discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago, now I am hooked, crocheting and your blog, iread and reread it every day. I am doing a hexagon rown cotton throw have about 25 hexs done. I have bought Jan Eatin book recently also but got a bit confused doing the ripple one, started it in cheap yarn so nothing lost. Think I will print of and start a cushion from your pattern. I love your crocheting, you are so talented.

Thanks Lucy - this is a great pattern and your directions are super - as usual!


Looks very tempting indeed! Thanks for writing this up.


How I wish I'd found your blog last year. I trawled through numerous sites to learn how to crochet but never found any that were really aimed at the beginner but seeing your tutorials...wow... you make it so concise, straight forward and non-patronising!
::THANK YOU::THANK YOU::THANK YOU:: (can you tell I'm happy?)
Looking forward to tomorrows post!

Its a great tutorial, especially because the photos are so absolutely clear! Thanks -- I think I need to go and make a pillow now.


You rock, Lucy.
And you're so generous with your time and knowledge - thank you so much.

Later on today I'm going to give this a go. I have tried to do a ripple before with unfortunate results :-)

Wow! Beatifully done! Your stitches are so nice and neat, and the photography is great. Isn't blogging fun? It can bring out the best of our creativity. I just bought some yarn today with the intention of making a ripple blanket and was looking for the stitch count, and here it is!
-- Thanks, Michele (South Carolina, USA)


You clever old sausage! This is fantastic -I now have a beautiful lime green ripple in my hands! Your instructions are so clear - thank you, thank you, thank you!!! How on earth am I ever going to get my essay written now? All I want to do is ripple!!! Lucy x


Even I understand your crochet instructions and I've only had 2 hours of lessons from Monica! I'd say that was a pretty big achievement. Ta!

Thank you for the ripply goodness, cant wait to try. Your yarn is always so colourful - is it Rowan yarn that you use? I love your blog it always brightens my day

I've tried the Jan Eaton pattern several times with no success, so THANK YOU! I will be definitely be giving it a go!


IT"S HERE-----Im running around like a mad women getting all my colours together THANKS South Australia Australia


Brilliant! Thanks,Lucy, for all the time and effort which has gone into this. Your tutorial and photos are so clear and well-explained...... you really should write a book! I'm going to try it this weekend.


Thanks loads for the ripply pattern and tutorial... I can't wait to get home - pick up a hook and some yarn and start.

I have been wanting to make a colourful back and forths ripple for ages... but the only pattern I had that I could figure out is the round ripple.

If anyone wants the pattern for this(the round ripple) please email me - its quick and simple but although pretty - not the same as the lovely side by side waves :)

Thankyou so much Lucy for your time and patience at putting this tutorial togeter for us :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you - you are so generous and I sooo wanted to know how to do this.


I have looked up a MILLION ripple patterns and they all sounded like a foreign language and they made me want to pull my hair out! This pattern makes it so simple. I think it is time for you to write your own crochet book!! I would totally buy it - just make sure you launch and sell it in the US please!!!

Kris Van Allen

I am so thankful for the time you took to write out such clear instructions and take such wonderful photos! I really like the "gentleness" of the waves in this pattern...with the 4 dc (I'm American) in between.

Now, it's off to decide on cotton vs wool! (and DK vs Worsted, although here in Texas, I think DK is the way to go!)


Great tutorial Lucy:-)


you truly amaze me. you make this look so easy with your beautiful instructions. i'll have to add to my list. :) thank you.


Thank you Lucy, again another wonderful pattern. Can you give me an idea how many chains and size of cushion please. I have tried before to calculate , but without much sucess. Thank you


Thank you so much, Lucy! I can't wait to try this in a little while!

Is there a certain brand of needle you use?


Riches Stitches

Thank you for this great and easy to follow pattern. I will definitely be giving this a go. My aim is to make a ripple blanket when I have finished my hexagon blanket. Or maybe I will start it sooner if I feel I need a change (this is the most probable scenario).
Thanks again Lucy, your time and effort is truly appreciated.
