Hello and thank you for this pattern, it was enjoyable to make a baby blanket for a friend from this. I'm just wondering what your policy is on people selling items made from this pattern?

What are the measurements for this afghan? Will it cover a queen size bed? What size hook in US hooks will I need? How long did it take you to get this done? Thank you very much! Linda

sandra lauterbach

thank you for replying.
i started my ripple blanket.
i wld like to make sure that i am doing it correctly. i made 115 chains (8 x 42)

I think i goofed.

Did i end the first row correctly with tr2tog tr2tog (ie Omitting the 1 tr in the next 4 chs)?
Because then when i start row 3, the increases are not above the increases in the 2nd row, nor are the decreases.

Should i being tr2tog over the tr2tog in the row below?

thank you

Thank you for sharing your pattern. Can't wait to have a go. Only been crocheting for 3 weeks and I'm hooked ☺

Diana Mitchell

How many skeins of yard for a full size bed blanket?

Debbi Tayler

It took me four attempts to work out this pattern but now am steaming away and really enjoying making luscious ripples. Have opnly been crocheting for a few weeks so am chuffed with my progress. Love your blog and patterns.

I am making a baby blanket ripple. It is so out of wack but I press on . I wish I had seen this pattern before I got half done.

Hello Lucy
Thanks for your tutorial. I've been longing to learn to crochet for a while now and have been marvelling at your creations. Today I've followed your instructions for the sample piece of ripple and it's worked and I'm so delighted. My friend is going to buy me one of your yarn packs for my 50th birthday and then I can really get going. I belong to a FB group called Crafting in France Together as I live in Normandy. I've given them details of your blog so you should get lots of new viewers. Thanks again.

Hi Lucy,
I spoke to some lovely ladies in coffee shop yesterday, one was working a ripple blanket, it was beautiful.
They invited me to join a group who meet up. I jumped at the chance and am really excited at learning (with your guidance) to ripple.
I learned 48 years ago to do shell blankets. I watched Jennifer Edwards on the steps of St Leonards School in Banbury and she taught me. We were 10 years old.
Never learned different patterns till now.....I am inspired, thank you, Chris Dunstan

This was so easy to learn. I have tried in oastvto do ripple stitch but always failed miserably. Thank you thank you.


Such clear instructions :) you helped this beginner get off to a flying start.


This pattern looks like something I can do - BUT, I need to know how much yarn to purchase!!!!


Wouah, c'est merveilleux, je vais enfin pouvoir faire ce point de crochet .
Vos explications sont tres claires.
Merci beaucoup


Hi Lucy,

I'm attempting to crochet a bed cover for a king size bed. Do I just crochet various squares of 31 stitches each and then sew them all together.
I find your blog extremely interesting and thank you so very much. I live in South Africa.


I have just completed my first ripple blanket for a new baby, thanks to you, but do you have any suggestions for an edging for it? X

Thankyou for the wonderful tutorial for the ripple blanket. I learned to knit and crochet 50 years ago and made granny squares off and on over the years. Never learned to follow patterns until I discovered your blog.
I have now learned to neatly join the squares and also learned to make your fab ripple blankets. I love following your wonderful diagrams and photos. Keep up the good work. All my friends in our crafting circle double check with your blog when they have an idea. Thanks for the inspiration.


Thankyou. Love the pattern. I'm having trouble with the ends. Every row is growing. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Regards Jodie

I know you posted this ages ago, but I am working on ANOTHER one for a friend's teenage daughter and am reminded of how much I LOVE this pattern! Your instructions and pictures make it failproof and the results are always beautiful.
I share a link to this pattern in my Facebook crochet groups often.
Thanks again for sharing your beautiful love of color and design.


Can anyone help please?! I'm on my third attempt of Lucy's beautiful ripple blanket! By row 3 eeach time the blankets puckers! 😒😳😁 The stitches flow wonderfully & the increase/decreases form but I end up with a semi circle not a flat blanket! My pals baby is due in May was hoping to get this finished as a present by then 😊 Thank you for the fabulous website Lucy xxx

Debbie Warren

I'm a crochet beginner and just wanted to clarify - the treble stitch you describe sounds like double crochet to me... Aren't you meant to yarn over twice at beginning of stitch for treble?


Thank you, thank you, thank you! This tutorial finally got me through row 3 of a ripple pattern. It took me forever to figure out the first row (my mom tried to teach me nearly 30 years ago, but totally gave up), and eventually I managed to get through the first two rows before doing something wrong and frogging it in the third row and giving up. Your tutorial was clear, and the pictures were a tremendous help.


WOW I am new to crochet and have managed to learn granny squares and circles so have made cushion covers and throws but am really looking forward to try this it looks great. You make it look so easy thank you x


Used this design to make placemats with colorful cotton yarn. Wish I could post a pic. That are pretty awesome! Thank you for providing such a thorough set of directions.


Thank you so much: this is really lovely, and so clear. Do you have any other patterns or tutorials?

I sat down w/my new hook & variegated baby yarn on Christmas evening to start a new pattern. After 2 attempts of NOT getting the ripple correct, I found your tutorial! I had it down on the first row! Thank you so much for your time in putting this together! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
