going to start whipping one out right now....I love having 2 or 3 different projects going at once.


Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! This has become my go-to for all projects that come up that I want to get out quickly. It always makes me happy to make a new one and everyone I know wants a "wave blankie", as my daughters call them.


Wonderful tutorial, thank you Lucy. I have just used it to make a 'river' for my daughter's crocheted farm play mat. Now going to use your flat circle tutorial for a pond! :-)

I would to know how to do an edging around the blanket could you help me out with a pattern for one thank you. Email address is denisekilburn@hotmail.comz


Hiya, I love this pattern and will be using it to make a rainbow baby blanket as soon I get hold of all the colours!
I'm trying to work out how much wool I'll need to make a ripple blanket about 100x100cm (with a couple of cm either side for edging), I'm not using anything particularly chunky, just merino. Please help!


Hi Lucy!
I love love love this pattern! Your tutorial is so much easier than any I have seen for the ripple stitch! I was immediately attracted to the ripple when I began to learn crochet over a year ago! I have yet to make anything using it as I was so intimidated! Well this tutorial is confidence enough for me now! Thank you so very moch! I will be forever grateful!
Kind regards, Deborah from South Carolina


I am so glad I found this post! I am now able to tackle the ripple pattern as I have been wanting to do for some time now. I do not like trying to read crochet patterns and you have broken it down perfectly so that it is very easy to understand and follow. Thank you so much for your time and effort in posting this, it is much appreciated!


@Tammy: I think the pattern is fully correct with regard to the chains. There might be some confusion due to the difference between US/UK terminology, as a UK treble equals a US double crochet - this is something which I myself as a crocheting girl from Germany constantly stumble over...;-)
@Lucy: Thanks for sharing this great pattern!


Hello all, I have been crocheting for over 20 years and I know how frustrating it can be when it comes to instructions. I couldn't help but notice in the instructions that it states to chain 3 going into the next roll and tr. stitch. This is a DOUBLE crochet not tr. stitch. To tr. stitch you would chain 5, a treble stitch is a longer stitch than a double and I hardly ever use it because of the openess of it. Also the needle she is using is a 4.00 mm which is equivalent to a size G-7 hook here in the US. I don't want to offend anyone by this statement, I just want to help others make beautiful afghans. Her work is beautiful and I love the colors.


Hi Lucy. I love this pattern and would like to make a baby blanket for my sister. For some reason I seem to be one chain short at the end of the first row. I feel I have counted correctly and got the increase and decreases right. I am new to crochet and this is my first project. I was hoping you could suggest things which could result in being 1 stitch short, and also clarify whether you yarn over once or twice. Some other video's seem to to yarn over twice?



I love your ripple blanket pattern! I completed 4 blankets using this pattern, and am now working on my fifth (a baby blanket this time). It is such an easy pattern, and can easily be worked while watching TV. The instructions in your tutorial are wonderful! Thank you for creating and sharing it!

Thank you so much for your fabulous neat ripple pattern. I am now the proud owner of my very own ripple blanket and totally love it! If you wanted to see how it's turned out I have popped a few photos on my blog. http://thestitchsharer.com/2015/04/19/the-making-of-my-attic-24-ripple-blanket/


Hi eveyone. Could anyone help me? I have made a little practice sample using chunky wool and it looked great :) Now that I'm using double knit my valleys are all flat! Anyone knows why this happening and how can change this?


Thank you so much! I just did a practice swatch and it's amazing! I feel so inspired to do my own blanket now!


I received my yarn pack for the Coastal colorway yesterday. The colors all look so pretty in the bag that I almost don't want to disturb them and to start the project. Thank you for the in-depth tutorial---although I know how to crochet, I'm more of a knitter.

Thanks for sharing your beautifull chrochet articles >

Pam @ Hooks and Hills

Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial. I just started crocheting recently and I am now rippling away :)


I made a small baby blanket using this and was really pleased. I have promised my daughter one for her bed - can anyone give me an indication of how much wool I'd need for a single bed sized one? I don't want to run out once I've got my colours going! Thanks


Hooray for lovely detailed and clear and easy to follow instructions. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

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!
