Thank you so much for taking the time and care with this Tutorial...it has been brilliant and very much appreciated.


Wow, this is such a great "how to"... Thanks a lot for putting it together!! It's much clearer than I thought and I'm not afraid to try it anymore.


Thanks for this excellent and easy to follow pattern. I have the yarn to make a lovely big blanket but decided to do a test run first with some lovely, soft merino wool which will hopefully become a scarf very soon.


Thank you so much for this, I'm new to crochet, well my mum tried to teach me many years ago but it didn't stick. Pattern books make it so complicated or expect that you already know the basics. This is great i can't wait to have a go at it and make myself a lap rug and maybe a cushion.

cheers kate


Thank you SO much for this pattern! I've always been afraid to try a ripple but you made it so easy to understand! I intend to just keep going on the 31 chains and make a ripple scarf. I will post a picture on my blog when I'm done. Thanks again!


Beautiful! You have inspired this Yank.


Lucy, Thanks so much for the ripple pattern. It was so easy to follow and now I finally can make something other than a sc or dc scarf! Woo Hoo.

I thanked you on my blog and posted a picture of my ripple creation (not finished). http://gavintiegirl.wordpress.com/2009/10/04/the-gratitude-challenge-day-15/

Thanks again Lucy. You are a GEM. PEACE!


OMG --- I can do it! I can ripple - thank you, thank you, thank you :)


I would like to thank you for a well written explanation of how the ripple is created. You see, I am not a crochet type. I am a knitter through and through, but there are some pieces that are only fantastic when worked up in just the right stitch...and often the stitch is one that is crocheted.

So I have been teaching myself to crochet by making and donating crocheted leprosy bandages.

Seeing the hills and dales on paper finally made something click. I've been mustering the courage to have a go at a ripple and yesternight, when I finished knitting a shawl and had a wee bit of wool left over, I had a go at your directions and I was pleasantly surprised, after only having to rip out a time or two, with the sweetest bit of rippled crochet....bliss!

love your blog...I come for the crochet and the colors!



I used your stitch pattern to make a simple ivory blanket for my newest baby. I went the lazy route and used kitchen cotton, since that was all I had on hand. I adore the finished product! Exactly what I'd hoped for, and the cotton went through the washer and dryer beautifully (and softened up nicely, as well). I don't know how copyrights and/or permissions work, but I wondered if you'd mind my using this stitch pattern to make blankets for charity (hospital donations) or perhaps the occasional fundraiser/craft fair. Forgive me if that's a no-no, or if even asking is inappropriate. As I said, I'm not sure how all of that works. Either way, thank you for sharing such a beautiful, simple pattern. I love my son's new blanket so much I've decided I need one for my favorite chair.


what kind of yarn did you use? Is it acrylic? Have you ever tried cotton? Thanks, SL in FL


This tutorial is amazing! just like all of them.
i've started making a little one to practice before i go and buy myself a tonne of lovely wool. however i'm having a bit of trouble because the sides aren't straight, they're slowly getting wider and i've been following the pattern exactly :S
any ideas?

Lucy, I know have finished my blanket using your pattern, now i am making a scarf using the pattern. I don't have a blog so i can't show you pics. Just wanted to say thanks. Your blog is great. Hope you are having a good vacation. Sylvia


Nice and bright. What yarn did you use? Thank you for the pattern.



This is GREAT! I had been looking for a ripple pattern for months and the ones I found didn't call out to me, but yours did!

so this is my blanket:

it's not completed yet, but I'm only a few ripples away :D

also in ravelry I have some more photos, bad quality though, from the cell

Louise randall

I just love everything you do, I was doing a bookmark with just a few of these stitches, and it just wasn't clear..now I will do it. Your blog was so good today. Rasies my spirits. Do show us the castle, I love castles. Lois from North Carolina
