Hi I have never made a blanket and I wish to start out with this one is there a step by step process of starting this pattern and blanket ????


I meant to add: Please can you add a DK version? Lots of people want this too :) Thanks


That's a lovely pattern, and such nice colours too. I will be using DK yarn and a smaller hood because I find worsted weight too thick. I noticed all over the net they are always worsted weight patterns, which is odd because DK goes so much further and costs a lot less to buy.


Why do I bother searching for answers all over the web when you always, always have the perfect solution??? I needed a chevron pattern BUT without holes and.. tachan! here it is and beautifully explained as usual.
From Spain, muchas gracias! Many thanks always xx

Hi, loved your help with this ripple blanket. I just have not been able to really catch onto the ripple but here you are with this wonderful combo of pictures and instructions. Do you have a list of the colors and their order? I really would like to make one just like this color combo. So bright and cheerful.
Thank you so much for you sharing your talent. B

I've made so many of these, including two coastals, and I would like to make one following your original color pattern. Have you written the color sequence for the original yet? Love your website, love your shop (I especially love the packaging for the yarn kits), and I am so grateful for your instructions which helped me with my crochet skills. I can now crochet this blanket in my sleep!

I love this pattern! It was my first ever crochet blanket! I've since made three, and passed the pattern on to a few people to make their own! :)


Thank you so much for this - a ripple blanket was next on my list of things to crochet!


I am going to give this a go tomorrow. I have tried a few other ripple patterns and always ended up with a stitch increase by the end of each row? Your instructions look fantastic, so fingers crossed this time it's works!!

I live in Cape Town South Africa and will try this immediately.it is absolutely beautiful.


This is a great tutorial!!
Thank you so much!!
You are making beautiful things and I am glad I re-found your blog which I am following now. I like what you write, the pictures and the recipes, too!
Best wishes!


Success!! I too would appreciate advice on edging, baggimary@gmail.com
In hope!


Oh my GOD! I've been given a pattern for a ripple blanket (the woman claims she wrote) and it keeps coming out crap! Thankyou for actually providing in depth instructions. Going to give this a go and see what happens!


Beautiful pattern. Thank you so much for your tutorial. Can't wait to start mine tomorrow.

Bonita Rankey

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! :-)

Denise killburn

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!
