I've tried desperately to follow this pattern, but my ziggyzaggies keep bubbling - where am I going wrong!?

Jess Sellars

Literally beside myself with excitement!! Love this site and you've taught me so much. My sample looks really promising and for a newby I cant wait to keep reading and learning. Thank you so much.


i know this is a super old post but i was wondering how many to chain for a crib blanket?


Nice work. Good tutorial. Thank you so much. In add. have you some video?. Cardineta.


Thanks so much for this! I have tried several times to make a ripple and couldn't do it... this makes it so clear!!!!! I plan to make a scarf first, then an afghan. Great job!!!

Hi Lucy,

I has been some time that I follow your blog. Thank yo for sharing your wonderful and colorful works and patterns, and especially this pattern.

Two days ago I finished my ripple blanket. It is a birthday present for my daughter, Michal. It measures 192 x 148 cm and has 218 rows. It was crocheted using a 3.5 mm crochet hook.

If you are interested I would be glad to send you some pictures of the blanket to publish in your blog.

I need some help Please, I am about half way through with my afghan but I've been keeping it on the bed and, well, it has stretched a bit. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do before I start up again to shrink it? any thoughts would be helpful.
Thank You for a wonder blog that is so cheery,


i want to make one for my sister (a ripple blanket) but her bed is a queen size. how big would my starting chain be. also love your website! fran

Great tutorial, just love this Ripple Blanket. Is it alright if I translate your tutorial into Dutch and publish it on my Blog? Love to hear from you.

Greetings from the Netherlands from Janny.


Hi Lucy,
Ive been looking to do a funky ripple blanket for ages and kept being put off because it looked so complicated... then I cam across your pattern!!!
Thankyou so much, just sat here for 5 mins and have mastered it! you are a genius!!
I love your blog!!!
Thankyou again xxx


This is the very best ripple explanation I have ever seen. As one who tried and failed to do ripple before you have given me renewed confidence that I just may be able to get it right this time.

Krystal Webb

I love your pattern! But, I can't find out where it says which hook to use and how much yarn I need to purchase. Anyone have an answer for me? Thanks!


Hello Lucy,
I have a question?

How do I finish the last row of the blanket?
Like.... the last knot or the blanket ending or the last stitch?



I keep seeing your ripple blanket pictures and want to have a go. I am going to do as you have suggested and do a little practice with yarn I am trying to use up. Then I can sense the temptation that lurks inside my local wool shop calling me..


This is such a fabulous looking pattern! i have so many blankets I want to make........I would absolutely LOVE it if you posted a tutorial for the Spot Square I saw on on of your posts. I'm currently obsessed with looking at your work and getting ideas for new projects! Thank you so much for putting forth the time to share your knowledge with everyone!


Lucy, thank-you for your great ripple pattern instructions. Over our Aussie winter I have almost completed a beautiful Queen size blanket in Noro Silk Garden yarn and I would like to edge it all round. I saw what you did for Kiki doll's blankie and wondered if you have instructions on how to do that? Can you point us to them if you do, please?
Thanks for such an excellent blog - you do a terrific job and I love your work.

Thank you for this great tutorial! It's very clear and easy to follow! I'm gonna make a beautiful scarf for my daughter with this pattern.
Warm greets from Holland


Thank you so much! I've been eyeballing this stitch forever, but I can't read patterns and would get frustrated trying. Pictures make all the difference. I'm ready now to move to new stitches. yay!


Hi Lucy,
I didn´t crochet for a long time, maybe 35 years. And now - crocheting (and knitting, weaving too) is my old-new obsession.
I would like to thank you for this pattern and so good instructions for it. Now, I think it´ll be easy for me to make some blanket on the whole.
And now I´m sending the link to your web (blog)to my crocheting friends in Czech Republic where I am from.

Is excelent!


I wish I had found you before. I'm working on one now that I had to make up, but it's not going as well as I hoped. I'm half way so I will finish it and start your pattern. Thank for sharing.

Snapshots and Snippets

I have been wanting to learn how to crochet for a year years now - all because of your beautiful blog! I finally had my first lesson a couple of weeks ago (sadly it's only a course of three lessons) but gave yiur pattern a go yesterday when feeling down with a horrible cold. The rippling goodness certainly cheered me up!!! Thank you so much for this pattern and for making it so easy to follow. I haven't increased or decreased stiches before, and hadn't followed a pattern before either, I felt very confident because of your c;ear instructions and photos. Thank you so very much!


Fantastic tutorial Lucy, I'm loving making my Ripple blanket. Thanks you so much. You really have inspired a new love of colour for me xxx Kylie

Pauline A Stevens

Hi Lucy, I love your work! I have made ripple afghans but I am having a problem starting the round
one. If you could help I sure would appreciate, maybe it's the pattern and maybe it me.

chris hindle

i am very happy to have found your version of ripple as i also have struggled with jan eatons pattern, it seemed no matter how many multiple + stitches i tried, the wave went skewed, at a crochet class i went to, even the instructor couldn't make it work out so we all took home our sample but couldn't progress any further!
Thank you for sharing yours, i am off to get started now and would like to donate as it is thrilling to find great patterns shared so generously, please keep them coming! chris
