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.

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

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.

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


thank you beautiful...ciao cinzia bologna italy

Greatings from Holland,


I am just delighted to see your colorful ripple afghans and pillows! It makes me want to decorate my home in bright and beautiful color-drenched and happy ways like you.
Thank you so much for your pattern!
I think the first one I will make will be a doll blanket for my little granddaughter, who is just two and loves her babydolls. It will be a good way for me to learn the pattern well.
Once again, thankyou and God bless you and your family.


Thank you for the tutorial! I haven't crocheted for a few weeks (busy busy busy!), and this was a fun easy-but-different pattern to bring me back. The 31ch practice width is perfect for a fall scarf! <3

Hi Lucy. This tutorial is really awesome. I definitely plan to try it. Thanks

Maria Shaikh

Your tutorial is awesome!! The ripple pattern is a bit intimidating :( but I definitely plan to attempt it, it is just beautiful. Just a quick question, at the end of each row, is there a TURN?!!

Kristee Watson

Hi Lucy,

Your ripple pattern is my go-to pattern. In fact, it's pretty much all I make for gifts for family and friends. I am from Canada and would like to use your pattern for a 100% volunteer charity organization that provides hand made blankets to ill and traumatized children. Can we chat?

Very exotic pattern Lucy, vibrant colors.


Lucy I am about to embark on a ripple blanket for my new niece!!! How many chain would you estimate for a blanket. The final result will be a pram blanket but I would like it a little bigger than the norm.

Many thanks

I've had so many projects of your doing on the go and finally just finishing a bunch! THANK YOU so much for your ripple inspiration and tutorial - it was SO easy to follow and I'm a super beginner crochet'r! :D

You can see my finished product in my post here if you like:


Ok, so I started this blanket and I am currently finishing up my very first row. I chained 143 (10x14+3=143). But when I come to the end I leave off with 2 dc2tog. Why is that? What am I doing wrong?

Greetings from a "sunny" Wales,

I just wanted to say: thank you so much for posting this pattern! I have only been crocheting a few months, but I only started because your creations inspired me to make something beautiful and colourful. Your whole blog is a "must read" for me now.

Diolch yn fawr (thank you very much) for the inspiration!

Sian :)


I have been trying to figure out ripples for years! I found this post and you've managed to make it easy to understand how to start it out! Thank you!

go crochet

It's so Awesome!!!!


Ahh very detailed tutorial!! Thank you!! I think I will make a scarf out of this design :)


Your work is so gorgeous. I used to crochet when i was a little girl, gave it a try another ten years ago, failed . Now i will try to resurrect whatever is there;) i am so impressed I want to create allnof our projects but first I have to get started somewhere.
