Lucy- I learned to crochet years and years ago but then took up knitting because I wasn't crazy about many crochet designs. I love what you've done and your use of color is modern and fresh. It's made me want to crochet again. Thanks for a wonderful blog!


Thank you for your colourful blog that makes me smile. I'm almost finished a very colourful Granny Square Afghan but couldn't wait to finish it before starting the Neat Ripple. I was so excited when I found the perfect yarn for it (so soft and beautiful bright colours) and I'm now ecstatic after completing my foundation row. Thank you for the pattern and your inspiring blog!

Thanks for the tutorial. That saved me hours of trying to figure new stitches out. Brilliant colors.

Have a great day!

OH MY, OH MY! I have spent the better part of my free time on Easter re-learning to crochet. I succeeded and then I tried to follow the simplest ripple stitch I could find and got totally off. All of my practice and ripples are ripped out and then I found you. :-) THANK YOU for this detailed, lovely tutorial! The nice thing? After a day's practice, I know at least know what I'm looking at. :-))))

Your timing is perfect! I finally succumbed to the Ripple bug and a friend pointed me to your tutorial (only 3 days old). Now I've got my yarn and I'm following your very clear instructions and my afghan is already 7 rows along! Thanks! (blogged here: http://kristinlaflamme.com/musings/?p=943)

thanks soo much! this is the best knitting/crochet tutorial I've ever seen.. Thanks for putting up all this information. I'm sure I'll be using this pattern a lot.


Absolutely love this! Is it okey that I transform this into Norwegian, so my mom can do this too?

You make it so simple and easy to understand. Have a lovely easter!

Am sitting here, next to the fire, crochet hook in one hand and the laptop on my lap attempting my first ripple (just 31 stitches first) and I've got to the end of the first row successfully!



Lucy, you are a Godsend!! I have only been crocheting for a little while and I'm always overwhelmed by traditional crochet patterns, they never seem to explain the things I need to know (like exactly which stitch I should be putting my hook through). Your patterns are so clear and concise. I love the step by step of them and the photos make it so much easier to follow. You're a genius lady. Thank you!

(although I'm not sure I should be thanking you for adding more things to my WIP list!! LOL).



THANK YOU for sharing this Lucy. Oo-er hope I can manage it, me being a novice and all, but looking forward so much to creating a rippley thing of beauty! Going to start over the Easter weekend.
Love, rainbows and sunshine, Jane x


I tried it and succeeded!!!! yuheeeeey! And thank you SO!



oooh just noticed you had posted this have been waiting for it as i want to do a blanket of this pattern for my baby son. i love your blog i always check up on it as it has given me inspiration and a new take on crochet. thank you x


Thank you so much for your lovely pattern and joyful blog! I played with the pattern a little this weekend and love how easy and fun it is.


Dear Lucy,

Thank you very much for taking the time to put this tutorial together for all of us to share. I have started a small sample and am amazed at how easy it is to follow all due to your wonderful instructions.

Your blog always adds a ray of sunshine to my day and I always look forward to visiting.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the wonderful and absolutely georgous tutorial. I can't wait to get all my yarn collected and to start this. Thanks again for taking the time to write up the pattern and to photo it. Greatly appreciated. Your photograghy is so beautiful.
Love your blog, my favorite one.


thank you so much for having explain your ripple, I LOVE it!! I don't know if I will try it before the hexagons... suspens!! sorry for my English, and thank you again, because even if I don't speak your language very well, I really love your blog !!!


Hallo Luci, verfolge Deinen Block täglich und finde ihn einfach toll. Habe letztens eine Babydecke im Wellenmuster gearbeitet. Du hast mich wieder richtig zum Häkeln gebracht.


This is a gorgeous ripple and I love your instructions because they are so detailed. Thank you so much. I also really love the yarn you use, but I am in the US. Any idea on what would be a good comparable yarn that would be easier for me to get?


Will you have a Flickr Ripple group?


Thank you Lucy!!!
I love you


Hi Lucy thanks so much for your time and patience. Great job on the tutorial. I have almost finished your pattern for the bag, I just love it and all the colours look fantastic. I am going to use if for my knitting and now crocheting. I am going to start the blanket. How many stitches did you do for your blanket.


Thank you Lucy, I'll be printing it off and keeping in a safe place until I've completed my squares. Then I shall be attempting it. Shame I can't buy(easily and cheaply) nicer yarn than is here.
Take a quick look at my squares lying in the sun during their spa treatment!!


I've been so excited to see this pattern so I, too, can try my hand at making one of these scrumptious blankie's of my very own! Thank you for sharing your pattern and for being so inspiring!


Will you include the general amount of yarn you went through to make your BEAUTIFUL blanket?
