I just love this pattern and have made it three times already. I'm halfway through my fourth blanket in rainbow colours when I made the mother of all mistakes!! Needing to uravel the last two rows I worked because of a counting mistake I was struggling to unravel the wool. Argh!! I had mistakenly started to uravelthe FIRST row!! Now I have stopped banging my head on the floor I'm wondering what I can do to rescue the work. Any help out idea greatly appreciated. At the moment I've threaded a running line through the stitches to hold them and left it till I've calmed down:-). X


And now I see it is UK treble!! Which is US double! Makes sense now! I will look forward to making this!


This is definitely double crochet and not treble. Does this change the pattern? Will multiples of 14 still work? Do we need to chain 4 on the end instead of 3 and start in the 5th chain from the holy? That’s typical for treble chrichet patters InBev seen

Hi Lucy.
I haven't seen any of your post in years. I used to follow you all the time and have some of your patterns. I still crochet and I also knit and quilt. I lost my husband two years ago and it helps to keep my mind and hands busy. I hope you get this as I'm not too great with the computer. If you get this I hope you can reply. Happy Crochet and best wishes. Ada Lee Cook from Vernon, Texas


Thanks just finished my first practice & first time I ever understood a pattern !
On how to try a small blanket but using a cake ball so will see how it goes

Julia Adamson

Thank you so much. I tried the Other pattern you mentioned and it was going horribly wrong. Thankfully I just came across your instructions and I have managed 2 short rows successfully. Your pattern matches my instinct for what I should be doing, but for some reason the other pattern didn't. Thank you for blowing my confidence that I maybe DO actually know what I'm doing, and can actually follow a crochet pattern. Now for the baby blanket!

linda tauke

A great tutorial,easy to follow.


Thank you for sharing your wonderful pattern. Having only recently learnt to crochet, I found your instructions very easy to follow. My daughter asked me to do a wavy blanket for her baby (due January) and this patter is just what I have been looking for. Again thank you.

A lot of the other tutorials are more difficult to understand but yours was easier so thank you!!

I have tried a similar pattern, yet in multiples of 12 instead of 14. However, when I get beyond a few rows, I always seem to have issues with the stitches not lining up. I was 40+ rows into a blanket and watching it flatten out - not being able to fix it, and ultimately having to start again. Missed giving it as a baby shower gift. Any advice?


How many yards of yarn do you need to make a full sized adult afghan? Thanks!

Karen Owen

When I finish the 3rd row, I have 2 extra stitches remaining. I'm doing the 31 chains and following the pattern above exactly, so I'm not sure why this isn't coming out right. I am an intermediate crocheter, but I have always had trouble with the ripple pattern. Any suggestions?

Jenny Reynolds

Please advise :)

The first blanket I did used double crochet and the Coast blanket says to use treble stitch but looking at the pics above it looks like the double crochet stitch.

Could you let me know whether its DC or Treble for Coast Blanket please.

My Aunt is 78 and for years she has wanted to make a wavey blanket. She can't read a pattern so your very helpful diagrams are just the thing.


Thank you for your first class tutorial, it makes it virtually impossible to go wrong! I've just made a baby blanket in bright rainbow colours using the pattern and it's turned out brilliantly. I've taught myself to crochet from tutorials on Pinterest, and find yours by far the clearest to follow. I'm now addicted to making baby blankets in all sorts of gorgeous colour combinations from the endless Stylecraft range 😃😃

Hi Lucy,
I am a beginner, am having trouble working out what size needle and ply wool you used for the wave blanket. Thinking of using at least DK.how many stitches across would you recommend, and how much wool.

Thank you Brenda.

Maureen Butterfield

Can you advise me on the border please?


Hi Lucy, just want to say THANK YOU!!!!! I have been trying to master this stitch from other blogs and videos, but yours is the BEST and the EASIEST to follow. Can't wait to use it make to a blanket or afghan. Keep up the good work and again thank you!!!!!


Thanks for your reply Candace, I'll look up that tutorial. You might have saved me from a big disaster!


Wendy, you don't want to snip your ends off at the knot, it will come undone, especially so with acrylic yarns. After you tie the knot you need to leave enough yarn for a tail to weave through. Lucy shows how to weave in the yarn tails in the Ripple Blanket Know-How Tutorial.


I'm a Crochet beginner so forgive me if this is a silly question, but what do you do with the ends of the knotted yarn when you change colours? Do you just snip them off close to the knot? I'm a bit worried the knot will come undone.

The pattern is easy to understand, but how much yarn would I have to buy to make this blanket and also what size hook do I use???
