Oh God. It's only because you don't know me and will probably think I'm a spammer that I'm restraining my urge to allcap throughout this comment because OMG OMG OMG this is the most perfect thing! I now need yarn in ALL THE COLORS! 1st up on my New Year's Resolutions Projects is to Learn To Crochet Things Besides Dishcloths Since I'm Actually One Of Those People Who's Really Attached To Those Dish Brush Things and this is ittttt! This is what crochet was made for I think!

Also, thanks for the teach on how to increase and decrease! :) I was prepared to just wing it on various projects with my knitting knowledge (I mean... it's all yarn... right?) and would have done fine on the increases and not so well on the decreases. So, big thanks!


What an amazing tutorial!!! I started mine last night and am loving making my pretty rippley blanket (although i did find that first row of triple really really hard)Thank you so much for doing this lovely clear and easy to follow pattern and post! you are a star and my crochet hero!!


Having run out of wool on my Granny Summer Garden Square blanket and my wool shop is closed for Christmas.. I am now about to embark on the biggest project ever.. My ripple blanket. Lucy your ripple blanket has so far covered Norwich and has made it's way to Halesworth.. the only reason I know this is because I was in John Lewis trying to decide on my colours and I started chatting to a lady and guess what.. she'd just finished hers!! Thank you so much for taking the time to give such excellent instructions.. you've opened my world again out of work, lovely kids and the other treadmill things us Mum's have to do each day.. when the day gets a bit much I just look forward to 9pm when I'll have that hook in my hand again. Really appreciate you.


I had a go at this and I can do it!!!
thanks for the awesome tutorial.
So I'm off to make a whole blanket. Will keep you updated.

Hi! This pattern is very straight forward and fun. Pretty quick too, considering. My one problem is trying to get the sides of the blanket straight.. Mine are very uneven. Any tips?


Thanks Lucy!

I've been looking for clear and compact versions all over the place...yours is by far the best!

Amanda Mac

I cannot thank you enough - this basic pattern has eluded me for weeks. Your explanation made so much sense, and I've finally got it now!

bev maguire

thank you thank you thank you...you have made me fall in love with crochet...i love all the bright colours you use AND AT LAST i have mastered the ripple stitch..i cant wait to see your next tutorial..they are so easy to follow thank you very much...<3


This is a great pattern and a lovely ripple- thank you for sharing! I have three questions:
1. What size hook did you use for your blanket?
2. How many skeins did it take?
3. What is its finished sized?

Thank you!

Maria Teresa Correia

Thank you for teaching us how to do this wonderful work.
I am portuguese and i saw your blog: it has plenty of very beautiful and perfect works done by you.
I wish you a Merry Christmas.


Thank you, thank you, thank you! I tried it out and the result was great! Your instructions are clear and easy to follow! Thank you again!

Perfecct pattern! I made a mobile case! You can have a look:


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.

Danita Burdette

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

Janny Bijlstra

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?
