Crochet Ripple Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®


1 ripple = 5 1/2 in. [14 cm] in ripple pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Dc3tog (dc 3 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

Work 1 row with A, 2 rows with B, 3 rows with C, 5 rows with D, 8 rows with A, 1 row with B, 2 rows with C, 3 rows with D, 5 rows with A, 8 rows with B, 1 row with C, 2 rows with D, 3 rows with A, 5 rows with B, 8 rows with C.


To change color work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.

With D, ch 115.
Row 1: 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 3 ch, (dc3tog) twice, dc in next 3 ch, *3 dc in next 2 ch, dc in next 3 ch, (dc3tog) twice, dc in next 3 ch; rep from * across to last ch, 3 dc in last ch; change to A in last st - 8 ripples.

Crochet Ripple Afghan Reviewed by Tameka Lewis on 2008-07-10 ****
This Pattern is very easy. Its fun and quick. I changed it up as far as the yarn type and the pattern, the thicker the yarn I think the better.
