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?


Thank you Lucy for your great instructions. I am a new crocheter and I am going to try the ripple blanket.

Debbie Warren, If you are in the US it is a DC, in the UK we call a US DC a Treble, (I always thought it was becasue you end up with 3 loops on the hook hence the name treble lol).

Love the pattern am about to start it for a moses basket blanket for my twin grandsons due May.

Joyce Carter

do you have how to start and end a single crochet ripple afghan as im having a lot of trouble with that part any help would help thank you

Janice smith

My daughter gave me one of the ripple pattern yarn packs for my birthday as I talked about you so often...with your tutorial and my practice yarn I finally feel I can start one of your fantastic blankets. I wish you knew how much pleasure you give to people like me..thank you jan smith Suffolk


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?

linda Greaney

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

Louise Miller

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.

Hollis Tinney

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.

Mandy Pipe

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

Kathy call

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.
