Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it’s lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I’m a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home.

I love crocheting this pattern, its relatively simple, rhythmic and soothing, but playing with colours in this way is also energising, exciting and a lot of fun. Well to me it is any road. I can see myself coming back to time after time. But I persevered and eventually I cracked it.

And I have so wanted to write a tutorial for a ripple pattern that would be easy to understand for beginners and would eliminate certain niggles. So what I’ve done here for you is to write my own pattern. I have to be clear about this for obvious copyright reasons that I have not copied this pattern from anywhere. It has been inspired by the one in Jane Eatons book, but it is truly my own. To start out, you need to crochet your foundation chain. It should be in multiples of 14, plus an extra 3 added on for turning.

I would strongly advise before you begin any ripply project to make a small ripple sample so that you’re confident of the pattern. I’m doing here, which will give you a good idea of how it forms. See in the above pic I’ve stuck my needle in there so you can see where to gocan you see the four chains? For beginners new to crochet, working the first row into a foundation chain can seem incredibly hard at first. I know, because I can so well remember almost giving up when faced with this task.

If you look at the above photo, I’ve stuck my needle in to show you where the next stitch will goit helps if you twist the chain towards you slightly, so that you are looking down on the side of it rather than the top of it. Ok, back to the patternyou should have just made 1 tr into the 4th chain from the hook. This is where you work 2 incomplete tr’s, joining them into 1 stitch at the finish. Yarn over, draw through all three loops. You have now worked what I call the “valley”, with the 4tr’s making the sides and the tr2tog’s making the valley bottom.

Now time to make the “mountain”. And again, work 2 more tr’s into the next chain. These four stitches make the top of the “mountain”, can you see in the above picture, the way it makes a V when 2 stitches are worked out of one? I find it really helps when working a ripple pattern to be able to recognise what the decrease and increase stitches look like. Because when you are working this pattern it’s sometimes veeeeeery useful to be able to look back over the row you’ve just made and see how the pattern has formed, to check for mistakes etc. OK, after your two lots of 2tr increases on the mountain you need to make 1 tr crochet into each of the next 4 chains.

Then make 1 tr crochet into each of the next 4 chains. And finally, if you’ve done it right, you should have 1 chain left at the end of your foundation chain. Make 2 tr’s into this last chain to end the row. I’ve drawn a little diagram above there, underneath the first row so you can get a feel for the pattern visually, to see how the ripples are formed. Make a tr crochet stitch in the SAME stitchsee where I’ve stuck my needle to show you where to go?

Make a treble stitch into each of next 4 stitches. If you started out with 31 stitches, you should have reached the end of the row now, as pictured above. You now need to make 2 tr’s into the top of the chain-3 from the previous row. See in the above pic where I’ve stuck my needle to show you where to go?

This chain can often be quite tight, you may have to work hard to wiggle your hook into that little hole. There, can you see the V of the last 2tr’s in that row on the left there? Now fasten off and turn the work round to join in a new colour. Joining a new colour is easysimply knot the two yarns together as close to the stitches as you can. Insert your hook through the first stitch, yarn over the new colour and pull it through to the front ready to begin.

All rows from now on will be the same. Chain 3, then make 1 tr into the same stitch, as pictured above. 2 tr into the top chain of the chain-3 from previous row. Are you full of Ripplesome Ripply Joy? Got enough yarn to now make a longer chain, to start a Neat Ripple cushion, a blanket perhaps? And in case you wish to print out some Compact Instructions to pop into your yarn basket, I’m writing out a more condensed Patterny version just for you.

YO, draw through all 3 loops. To begin, chain multiples of 14, plus 3 for turning. 2 tr into last chain, turn. Repeat row 2 for length required. And let me know how you get on. All my tutorials are created for you to use and enjoy for free. Hi, I absolutely love this pattern and was thinking about making a blanket!

Could you please tell me what size crocheting hook to use. I have started a ripple blanket using your pattern but I have lost the crochet hook. Actually many native cultures around the world don’t distinguish betweeblue and green in their languages, they use the same word for both colors. Thank you for the easy to follow instructions. Hi, could you please contact me regarding this pattern? Ty Karen for finding this patten.

Its basically what im using but i have an edged ripple. I’ve reached the end of the row I have 3 chains left not 1? Have gone back and checked my chains, definitely 143, checked my work, no mistakes So why do I have 2 extra chains? Please let me explain more thoroughly in an email! Would you be so kind to write me a short message on the email address that I have provided by posting this comment? I noticed in the utube video it was 12 plus three is there a reason for the different cast on? Is it possible to print just the pattern without the tutorial?

It would really be nice if more people used “print” symbol and somehow offered just the pattern. That requires a lot of paper to print when all that is really wanted is the pattern. This is a lovely simple pattern but the bright cheerful colors really are impressively happy to look at. All your wonderfully bright projects are enjoyable to see without necessarily actually crocheting anything! But I do love to crochet and bright colors are my favorites. I just want to thank you for this pattern.

I can’t sit and watch TV or listen to music while I crochet, because I have always been so bad at being able to find and fix mistakes and identifying stitches, etc, so I have to solely focus on what I’m making. Your pattern is so easy to follow, and the fact that there’s only one row to remember makes it so much easier for me to keep track. I started working up a sample and only had to reference the repeat pattern one time after I got to the first repeat. It doesn’t sound like much, but that is a BIG DEAL for me! Sorry for the long comment but I’m so excited! I’ve been trying to learn this stick for years and thanks to you I’ve finally got it!

Hi Lucy, Bought this kit earlier this year but haven’t started it as I’d like to buy another kit the same and make it to fit a queen bed. Where can I buy the kit as I lost details of the first one I bought. Thank you for this pattern and tutorial! Just want to say thanks so much for taking the time to write out these instructions. They are so clear and easy to follow! I can’t make head or tail of it. But this one is awesome, and the pictures really help too.

Thank you Lucy for a fantastic straight forward tutorial. I ordered my costal pack a few days ago so now I’m ready to get started as soon as it arrives. 3 stitches between the top and bottom of the waves, as you do in your baby ripple blanket, as mine is for a new baby of a dear friend. Thank you for the great tutorial!

I am a bit puzzled about all the ends. I don’t seem to have made very nice knots at the changes of colours and some are coming apart and some just don’t look good. Would you advise making the knots again and then weave in the ends or simply to undo the knots and weave in each end within each colour. I fear I won’t do this neatly enough with the knots, but I also fear that the ends might come unweaved if I undo the knots. I am pleasantly surprised how neat and tidy the other side has turned out.

I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, which is the first time I use yarn with Acryl, so it’s more slippery than the wool yarn I am used to work with. I tried to include a photo, but can’t find out how to. Your comment has not yet been posted. Your comment could not be posted. The letters and numbers you entered did not match the image.

My name is Lucy and I’m a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I’ve been making granny squares for eighteen months now and in that time I’ve made a great many for blankets and cushions, all of which have been joined together after the squares themselves have been made. Then a few weeks ago when I had an idea to make a throw out of small three-round granny squares, I decided to test out a join-as-you go method. Quite honestly, the thought of sitting down with a huuuuuuuuge stack of small squares and attempting to crochet them all together actually filled me with alarm. This method is not difficult my friends, but it helps if at first you can sit quietly with no distractions and concentrate hard on how you are forming the round. It would help if you are already familiar with making granny squares, familiar with the pattern of side clusters and corner clusters.

Because all you are doing is replacing chain-spaces with what I call Joining Slipstitches, the rest is exactly the same. I’m showing you my current project, which as I say is made up of small three-round squares. But this method can equally be applied to large squares. The first stage is to complete one side of the round first. So in this case, as you can see above, I have chained 4, then made 3 tr’s into the first corner space of the green circle followed by a chain-1 space. If your squares are bigger than mine, simply work as many side clusters as necessary, stopping at the point where you are mid-way through your second corner cluster, as above. Now when you are making a corner, you would normally separate the two lots of treble clusters with a chain-2 space right?

Well all you do when joining-on-the-go is replace those chain spaces with one or two slip stitches. Now complete the next bit of your corner cluster by working 3 trebles into the same space as the previous cluster. When that corner is complete, in a normal square you would now be making a chain-1 space, right? So instead of chaining a space, simply replace this with a Joining Slipstitch into the next space of the pink square.

I’ve inserted the hook into the space? So yarn over, then pull the yarn back through the space and through the loop on the hook. That’s your second Joining Slipstitch made. Now you’ll need to make a side cluster, so work 3 trebles into the next space along on the green circle.

Then make another Joining Slipstitch into the next space along on the pink square. And that my lovelies is your first side joined, huzzaaahhhh! See, told you it was easy! So continue onwards, remembering to finish off your corner cluster there by making three tr’s into that same space, then chain 1. Now if you’ve got all that, I’m just going to quickly show you how to join a square in when there is a corner involved, when you will need to join two sides instead of just one. Start out in exactly the same way as described above. Work the second half of the corner cluster into the same space.

2 more joining slipstitches on either side of the side cluster. And now you will be working the next corner cluster, so first make 3 trebles into the next space along on the red circle first, then in place of your chain-2 corner space, you’ll be making 2 Joining Slipstitches look. I made the first Joining Slipstitch into the corner of the teal blue square, then the second Joining Slipstitch is being made into the corner of the red square. Can you see how it’s working? Continue making the third side of your granny square, remembering to make a Joining Slipstitch between each treble cluster where you would normally be making a chain-space.

You then need to chain 1 before continuing to finish the corner with another treble cluster in the same space, and working your way down around the last side. As with a normal granny square, you should end the round by making 2 trebles into the very first space you worked out of, joining with the initial chain-3 to complete that corner cluster.

Thank you so very much for this tutorial! Did you notice that you solved a mystery generations of nerds and brightheads couldn’ t conquer?

This is the squaring of the circle. Will they ever notice that it has been done? Thank you so much i am glad to do some blanket like this ,and the same colour. Oh my goodness I have just read your tutorial on join as you go and even though I am new to crochet, am going to try it. Have just completed your mandala pattern with the puff stitches, you make the instructions so clear that it was easy, now am ready to make a dream catcher from it. GREETINGS FROM THE GREAT GRAND MASTER!
