Thanks just finished my first practice & first time I ever understood a pattern !
On how to try a small blanket but using a cake ball so will see how it goes

Julia Adamson

Thank you so much. I tried the Other pattern you mentioned and it was going horribly wrong. Thankfully I just came across your instructions and I have managed 2 short rows successfully. Your pattern matches my instinct for what I should be doing, but for some reason the other pattern didn't. Thank you for blowing my confidence that I maybe DO actually know what I'm doing, and can actually follow a crochet pattern. Now for the baby blanket!

linda tauke

A great tutorial,easy to follow.


Thank you for sharing your wonderful pattern. Having only recently learnt to crochet, I found your instructions very easy to follow. My daughter asked me to do a wavy blanket for her baby (due January) and this patter is just what I have been looking for. Again thank you.

A lot of the other tutorials are more difficult to understand but yours was easier so thank you!!

I have tried a similar pattern, yet in multiples of 12 instead of 14. However, when I get beyond a few rows, I always seem to have issues with the stitches not lining up. I was 40+ rows into a blanket and watching it flatten out - not being able to fix it, and ultimately having to start again. Missed giving it as a baby shower gift. Any advice?


How many yards of yarn do you need to make a full sized adult afghan? Thanks!

Karen Owen

When I finish the 3rd row, I have 2 extra stitches remaining. I'm doing the 31 chains and following the pattern above exactly, so I'm not sure why this isn't coming out right. I am an intermediate crocheter, but I have always had trouble with the ripple pattern. Any suggestions?

Jenny Reynolds

Please advise :)

The first blanket I did used double crochet and the Coast blanket says to use treble stitch but looking at the pics above it looks like the double crochet stitch.

Could you let me know whether its DC or Treble for Coast Blanket please.

My Aunt is 78 and for years she has wanted to make a wavey blanket. She can't read a pattern so your very helpful diagrams are just the thing.


Thank you for your first class tutorial, it makes it virtually impossible to go wrong! I've just made a baby blanket in bright rainbow colours using the pattern and it's turned out brilliantly. I've taught myself to crochet from tutorials on Pinterest, and find yours by far the clearest to follow. I'm now addicted to making baby blankets in all sorts of gorgeous colour combinations from the endless Stylecraft range 😃😃

Hi Lucy,
I am a beginner, am having trouble working out what size needle and ply wool you used for the wave blanket. Thinking of using at least DK.how many stitches across would you recommend, and how much wool.

Thank you Brenda.

Maureen Butterfield

Can you advise me on the border please?


Hi Lucy, just want to say THANK YOU!!!!! I have been trying to master this stitch from other blogs and videos, but yours is the BEST and the EASIEST to follow. Can't wait to use it make to a blanket or afghan. Keep up the good work and again thank you!!!!!


Thanks for your reply Candace, I'll look up that tutorial. You might have saved me from a big disaster!


Wendy, you don't want to snip your ends off at the knot, it will come undone, especially so with acrylic yarns. After you tie the knot you need to leave enough yarn for a tail to weave through. Lucy shows how to weave in the yarn tails in the Ripple Blanket Know-How Tutorial.


I'm a Crochet beginner so forgive me if this is a silly question, but what do you do with the ends of the knotted yarn when you change colours? Do you just snip them off close to the knot? I'm a bit worried the knot will come undone.

Evelyn Hoogerzeil

The pattern is easy to understand, but how much yarn would I have to buy to make this blanket and also what size hook do I use???


Thank you so much for this amazing pattern and the easy-to-follow instructions!


Dear Lucy I would like to buy the blue stylecraft selection pack to
Make the illustrated blue ripple blanket - can you tell me how many chains to start with and the sequence of colours as illustrated for that pack of wool
Thank you AMALIA


Thank you very much for your wonderful tutorial, everything is quite clear and very easy to crochet. But could you please tell how to crochet this pattern in a circle if I have to form a cone with extension? Have you ever made this? :)
I am a beginner crocheter and I am trying to figure out how to make a mermaid tail blanket for my daughter using this pattern. Thank you very much in advance for your reply!


Thank you so much for this! I have been scouring the internet for a simple ripple pattern and everything is so confusing. No one wants to explain what it is you do at the end of the second row with the last stitches. They all say "this part is tricky" or "you have to be sure to get this right or your count will be off" and then they quickly go past it and I'm left wondering what just happened! : ) Your tutorial made it plain and obvious to me and I've started my first ripple lapghan. I hope to do this first one as a practice and then give them as gifts this Christmas. Thank you so much for this!
All of your work is beautiful, I'm super jealous. haha

Sue Birchall

Hi what is the best yarn and hook to use for this ripple pattern?

bethannie thomas

Im fairly new to crochet and can follow the pattern, but I don't know how to stitch each part together. Do you have any advice for this?
