I would like to make this for a very special friend who I has decided to use a chevron pattern in her new nursery. I thought this would work in wonderfully. I can see that you have made a Baby Ripple Blanket but cannot find the link to the pattern. In order to make this 75cm wide how many chain do I need? I am thinking 126 + 3 but would like to check, if I may? Thank you so much, Lucy. I am still only a beginner but your beautiful work inspires me to they harder. Deb. :)xx

I never thought I'd manage the ripple all other previous attempts have ended in disaster but sat carefully reading and following this post i did it Thank you so much :D


wonderful clear instructions thank you


I have unpic3 times and think I am going crazy.
I have been so careful, really think I have it...lovley long three deep ripple then I notice I have a straight bit at the end.
Is anyone else having these problems?


Gale in California this is Linda in Delaware formerly of Pasadena California... :)... just finished a baby afghan using an H hook and Red Heart supersaver yarn. I kept the rippled top and bottom and just finished the sides in hdc. Seems like a G thru J hook is used and DK to worsted weight yarn.
If you google DK yarn, you can find how to order it. Hope this helps and good luck to your project!


I just ordered my yarn and read your amazing simply written pattern. I can not wait for my yarn to arrive so I can start a baby blanket for a friend. Thank you so much!!!! I just can't stand myself right now. So excited!


Hello from California. I love the Neat Ripple Pattern of yours. I am unable to subscribe to the feed to get answers to the questions posted. I just need to know what size crochet hook you used and how details of the yarn you used for this project. Also, how much yarn of each color do I need? Can you please email me? Thank you so much for all your help. I can't wait to get started on this project.

For those asking questions on here, use the hook size that is suggested by the yarn label. If you need more information you can go to Ravelry.com and there is a group there called "We Love Lucy" on there you can find a thread devoted to the ripple. Hope this helps.


How many would I have to chain for a single size blanket please ? Thanks


Hello, am in the US... after a few practice rows, using an H hook and super saver yarn am just breezing thru a baby afghan.. have 10 ripples for the width using 5 colors in a repeat block. Thanks for the great pattern and tutorial! This is a great stash buster afghan!
Next one will be just pink and white for a little girl. If I can figure out how to post a photo, will do so.


I am a complete newbie here. I followed your wonderful directions and I actually did it, well four rows so far. I am a little nervous about creating a blanket though. I just keep looking back .... can't seem to remember!
Thanks so much for sharing.


Really beautiful work...Thank you


Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. What size hook do you suggest to use?

Phyllis Milner

I always wanted to do a ripple afghan so decided to do this one ,it was so well explained but it didnt work out the first time so Iwatch this again and was doing it right ,explain to the people you start with the valley and haft to have valley at end so next pattern lines up I have so many small balls of left over yarn ,so that why I wanted to do something like this Thank you


I want to make this blanket for a friend, how much yarn would I need for a lap blanket and what size of hook would I use?


Where can I find the answer to all the questions asked? I really want to start this awesome pattern.

Jane Beaumont

I bought the yarn pack for this blanket from Wool Warehouse. It was the firs pack I bought. I also bought the the Coast pack - made a blanket for my grandson - the cottage and the cosy. I have OCD about some things and I'm not very good at deciding on which colour to use where so the lists that Lucy does are perfect for me. I can't find a list for this blanket - the neat ripple. Is there one? I love the ripple pattern and really want to make this one. Thanks xxx

Sandra Massello

Where are the answers to all these questions because it will answer my questions!


Hi Lucy: So glad to see your neat ripple pattern. I have chained 196+3. I want to make the width about 54 inches. Am wondering if I need to make the chain longer to accomodate the ripples? Looking forward to starting this blanket.

Susan Battensby

Thank you very much for the lovely step by step instructions. I have now made a cushion cover using your pattern. I would now like to make a double bed size throw and would like to know how many grams of wool I would need to do this. I have been using aran wool and a size 6mm crochet hook and would like to use aran wool again as I found this crochets quite quickly. Thank you so much.


This is a wonderful, detailed tutorial, thank you Lucy. But there is one step I am not quite understanding. I would love to know the best way to join a new color for the Neat Ripple. Do I fasten off as you would to end your crochet work for each color change? Then make a slip knot, or pull the new color under the first stitch, then chain 3? I feel this is such an important step and should be flawless, since the colors are changed so often. I am not having great success with the color change. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Julie

Hi Lucy , love this pattern and you explain it so well and visually i understand how it works , but silly question how do you get the width.?
i know yours is a sample. so I'm presuming you do multiples of 14 for as wide as you want to go plus your 3 turning chains.?
thanks jill


What size hook (USA) do you recommend? I'm about to start making this--can't wait!

Leah Fysh

Hi Lucy, I'm in the process of making this blanket for my 4mlnth old grandson in different shades of blue. Love this pattern. Thanks for sharing. Leah. 😊


HELP PLEASE! I made the sample and it went well so started my blanket . I'm confused as my increases and decreases don't line up. My increases (VV) have four stitches at the top but I'm only using two (V) so have another spare. Please can anyone help?
