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?!!

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.

rachel knight

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your tutorial for the ripple pattern. I'm using it to make a blanket for my first granddaughter! I couldn't have done it without your help--especially the pictures! Thanks a million!


Ok I am really new at crocheting. I am trying to follow your wonderful tut but I am having problems. On the 5th photo you have two loops or stiches on the hook and you say to Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, hook back through stitch (3 loops on hook).But I am not sure what stitch you are saying to insert your hook into. I have sat here the past 10 mins trying to figure it out. LOL Can you help me.


Like it very much, just wondering why you need to go under two threads of each chain in the foundation stitch?


Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! My friend's wedding is coming up and a blanket like this will make a perfect gift! Your diagrams are so handy!


could u please e mail me

single crochet instructions ?

u do make it look so easy, but single crochet
is easier for me to do.

thank u so much for the pictures too .........


Dear Lucy, Your ripple afghan is beautiful and I love your blog! I'm new to crocheting, but I do so want to complete this amazing afghan. In your wonderful directions, you say to put your hook under both loops....is that apply to all stitches. Does this apply to the decrease and increase when it says to work in the next stitch? And, as I start my row 2, will I work under both loops? Just needing some help and I thank you so much. Take care! Connie

Lucy, I've been avidly following your blog for a few months now, having taken up crochet in retirement. I've done a little in the long distant past, but your lovely colourful creations have inspired me to start again. I've progressed from bog standard granny squares to circles in squares, next attempt will be ripples. Your tutorials are easy to follow and your blog is a delight to read. Big thanks. Sue


This is such a Nice pattern! But im not sure what to do with all The loose ends along The way, any advise?
