A friend recommended that I look on your blog - and I'm so glad I did! Yes, as others say, your instructions are so clear & not over complicated, and the photos are really helpful. I had just finished a blanket for a new little fella in the family and have 9 weeks to get one done for my sister's new baby. Her request was for bright, rainbow colours and a wavy pattern... I'm now on row 8 having done 185 to start - it's coming out at 44'' wide -ish. It's so easy to follow this pattern while we watch a movie at night. I'm really excited about this blanket & look forward to trying more of your patterns after this one. Thank you!


Hi, Having made the Granny Blanket and had great success. Now attempting this one as I love the shape. On row 5 now and all is going well. Your tutorial is excellent. I am new to crochet and
just love your site and your tutorials.


I too would like to know the number of chains for a double bed.

Hi Lucy,
Heather from AUSTRALIA I have been looking for this pattern and looking for a reasonably easy one. So I will give your pattern a go and let you know how I went.
thankyou.heather mills


Hi Judy,
The tr2tog is the decrease or the "valley" portion of the blanket. In the US it can read as 2-dc dec or dc2tog. You will do this twice in each valley or: dc2tog (twice). In short, a UK tr is a US dc, and a UK dc is a US sc. Just follow the tutorial but remember you're doing US double crochets, not US trebles. I hope I have not confused you more.

What a wonderful thing you do to comfort those in hospice care. Having had a loved one in hospice care I can honestly say they, and their loved one's, are deeply appreciative of your kindness. Thank you!

these are the best instructuions that I have ever gotten. The only thing you must remember is that the trb is a dbl. Thank You Thank You You are the greatest


Hi Gilstrap, your confusion lies in the fact that we use different crochet terms in the UK where Lucy is based, so our treble stitch is equivalent to your double crochet. So yes, you follow the instructions in Lucy's notes and you'll be a bilingual crocheter! Hope this helps

I have SERIOUSLY lost my crochet mojo recently - had no interest at all and was fearing that it would never come back!
I've tried ripple blankets in the past but found the patterns quite tricky and not enjoyable.

Then I found this last night. I LOVE IT.

It's easy peasy lemon squeezy! I even got up early today to pop another row on before I went to work. I can't wait to get home tonight to continue!

I'm doing mine using grey, pink and a lime green - 2 rows of each with a single row of cream in between. The colours are stunning together.

I used a started chain of 171 as I'm making this for an adult (possibly myself haha) - I'm also using chunky wool and a size 8 hook so it's a nice big width.

Thank you for a lovely pattern.

never commented on a blog before but I am really chuffed! Sat in France and following your instructions have started a ripple cushion cover for my granddaughter. Already hooked.( no pun intended). Always concerned when travelling by air that tbringing wool and needles might cause a problem so never bring any project that is started. Already got ideas for more ripples.


O u have explained this well 'll going to try and learn hope it stays on my face book.Thank you xxx

Hi Lucy! I found your fipple pattern sooo easy and I made my Choc-mint ripple afghan. Un fortunately the photo doesn't do it justice. Will definately be making more as it was easy and soothing to sit down and lose yourself in the crochet. Before you know it time has just flown! So thanks from Victor Harbor, South Australia.


My 5 year old granddaughter has requested a rainbow blanket to go in her new blue bedroom. I'm going to give this one because it's so lovely. Thank you for your generous free pattern.

How do you finish the blankets? I have just finished a lap blanket (a good friend of mine is now wheelchair bound), and want to add a trin to the edging. Is there anything that you would recommend?

Robyn Taylor

Thankfully I have discovered you today. Recommended by a lovely lady at my local markets. I have ordered supplies to make a ripple blanket. Woo hoo. xoxoc


Just found your site a little over a week ago. Love your use of color...something I have been afraid of attempting. I ordered the Cosy Pack and the Cottage Pack from Wool Warehouse and they arrived today: UK to Arizona, USA in six days. Impressive! Cannot wait to get started but must first finish a Glacier Bay Blue Ripple that I started a couple weeks ago, that now looks, well...just plain blue. Can't stop looking at my two new bundles of colorful joy. So excited! Thank you for sharing your patterns, your gift of color, and your tutorials.

Ivy Gilstrap

How come the stitch you are describing is a double crochet? A treble crochet requires you to YO your hook twice to start out. So am I doing a double or treble crochet.. I'm confused..


I also would like to know how many chains for a baby afghan...thanks.


Anyone know how many for a baby blanket?

Michelle Spencer

Hi Amanda,
I googled multiples of 14, picked a number and added 3 which made 325. I followed the pattern instructions to the letter and everything turned out great. I also used stitch markers to make sure my chain was correct. Don't give up, just follow the pics. If I can do it, you can too.
Fingers crossed for you.


Help?! I chained 143 to start, followed through the first row but when I get to the end of the last pattern repeat I have 3 chains left and my next stitch should be a tr2tog. Why?!

Michelle Spencer

Yay, I finally found you and your fandabidozi ripple pattern! And I can do it! Thank you so much. I'm gonna start a blanket straight away.

Elisabeth Jackson

Is there anyone that knows how to make a straight edge on this kind of pattern? If so please let me know


I just finished mine, in peacock colours. I posted it to your Facebook page, but it seems like everyone but you has seen it. ;) Is there a better way to share photos with you?


I'm only on the first row of my second stripe and I love this pattern already! It's so easy to follow and the effect that's created is lovely.
Thank you so much x
