When starting the border, which side is the right side or doesn't it really matter? The bottom starting colour (first row) is the wrong side and the finishing colour (last row) is the right side.

Lucy, I did it! I finished my first ripple blanket and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I am a beginner crotchet-er and did a few washcloths first to get my tension consistent. Your pattern is fabulous and so easy to follow. I did have to undo quite a few rows along the way as I lost count few times and added too many stitches or missed a few and I often didn't find it until I got to the end of the row and didn't have the right number left!!! I was so tempted to fudge it and keep going but I forced myself to undo it all back to my mistake! Boy, has it taught me to check my work as I go, but also that its worth undoing and getting it right. But mostly it has taught me to enjoy the process as it has taken me 4 YEARS to from start to finish (I don't crotchet much in summer in Australia as it gets too hot. I have just completed the blanket only 2 hours ago and just in time. It is a gift for my husband for his birthday - which is tomorrow. I might send you a picture once he opens it. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern so freely, i have learned so much with it, enjoyed it immensely and my whole family and loved watching it grow.

Wich colors do you use for your summer ripple blanket?

Hi Lucy
Thanks for such a clear pattern!
I want to make a shawl in ripple pattern. Could it be done on the diagonal, do you think, to make a triangular blanket?

I have been wanting to do a Ripple blanket pattern for a while but not found a pattern that I can follow properly until I have seen yours. Can you help or tell me please, the mountains and the Valley points on your pattern are they prominent if you know what I mean, I have seen pictures of them where they are really pointed.
Thank you for your help.


Barbara Johnson

Hi Lucy, hope you have had happy Christmas
Could you tell me please how many stitches for baby ripple blanket ?

Sandra Jones

Hi, I love this blanket although not made one YET. But I will. How do you get the mountains and Valleys so pointed with them please. It isn't on all the blankets that I have seen but on fb a lady has got a picture of one she has done but not how she has got them so distinctive.

Finished one ripple blanket in blue/teal shades, worked great.
For next one I want to use greens/beiges, but do I have to always make two rows of the same colour, could I do 1, 2 or 3 rows and then change colour ?


Hi Lucy,
Absolutely love your patterns and am nearing completion of my second ripple blanket!
However, on my last few rows I've not had enough yarn to complete the Meadow and Silver colours? I've done exactly the same as my first ripple (cosy cottage) which was fine but now doing the coastal I've not enough yarn? Could it be that some of the balls are not 100g???
Help please!!!

Hello I crochet a king size sc afghan and require an edge. Will your edging work on a sc project. I'm concerned about the deep valleys of the ripple pattern. Not all ripples are the same size. I like variety in my ripples. If not, could you give me some advice on the edging? Thank you for your help
Best Regards,


Hi Lucy, I am a learner crocheter and never done anything bigger than a washcloth. I got a kit while visiting the UK from Australia and followed the pattern with help from this site. So great to follow and I am enormously proud of my first ever blanket... thank you...

Hi Lucy
I have finished my blanket but have put off doing the darning in and border. I didn't crochet over the ends for the first 12-14 stitches of each row as I was following the pattern that came with the wool. Now I have all these ends along the side of the blanket and am not sure what to do with them. Can you please offer me any suggestions as I would like to finish off the blanket. Many thanks. Rosie

Hi abbreviations: what difference between Dc2tog and dc2tog (ripple baby blanket) ?

Linda Hart

Lucy, You have the best patterns and tutorials. I love this blanket and plan to start soon. Just wanted to say that you do absolutely beautiful work that is so easy to follow. I have 3 of your yarn kits, but when I'm done, this project is next. Only bummer for me is I'm in the US, but I've been successful in converting your patterns to US terms. Again, thank you.


im sorry these are not beginner patterns
not simple
we googled in simple easy beginner patterns

Sue Allen

Love making these afghans for friends and family. May I sell these on Etsy? I would certainly give you credit as well as link to order their own for those who crochet. Thank you for sharing. I love the Stylecraft Special DK from Wool Warehouse.


Thank you so much for the pictures on how to do the edging - this has always been my downfall but now I see it perfectly.

Hi, I am struggling with getting this right. I have definitely got the right numberof chains, and I have followed the pattern for the first row but never seem to end up with 4 tr at the end, ready for the two tr intothe top of the chain 3. I got onto my 6th row and it seemed to be getting wider a one side (as mentioned in a previous comment), also less ripply/wavy. I just can't seem to match up my stitches and I don't know what I'm doing wrong! It's very frustrating as I've unpicked it all once already, now making a second attempt but it's still happening :-( if anyone can help I'd be so grateful. Sonja x


Hi I have for a very long time wanted to learn to crochet and a big thank you to Lucy Attic I have crocheted a few baby blanket but now after reading how to crochet round the edges I have great confidence just reading how you start ant finish along each side top and bottom was of great use to me I would have just continued all the way round.

On one of your web sites I have fallen in love with a blanket with such bright colors it has the name Nitty Nora below the blanket please can you help me to find how to get wool and pattern

Thank you sue


is there a way to do round one in this ripple pattern?


Is this the Coastal Ripple afghan?

Carolyn Ritz

2dc ch2 2dc in next chain-two sp ch 1 skip dc ch 2 dc ch2 sc-2 sp. Don't understand sp as this is first row after chaining.


Lucy, thank you very much for the free pattern. I worked for several months at my ripple blanket. I made it with automn colours en I am very much in love with the result! Icy greetings from The Flanders! x


Oh my Lucy! This pattern is fantastic! I found you on FlickR in the photo where you look wonderful in your pj's and ripple blanket! I know this is now years later and the yarn you used - the Rowan cashmerino is now discontinued (sad, sad sad face)lol Could you be able to tell me a similar yarn that you would recommend to achieve the softness of that ripple?! I did also place an order through wool warehouse for the coast colorway as well but REALLY want to recreate that very soft looking blanket in your FlickR photo!! Thank you so much in advance!
