Easy Ripple Crochet Stitch

Here is a simple ripple pattern that can be used for a variety of crochet projects such as baby blankets and afghans, scarves or rectangular shawls, table runners or place mats  (if you decide to use crochet thread), etc.

You can experiment with different colors and use them in different sequences. This also could be a good stitch for projects when you want to use up leftover yarn of different colors. For example, you can make a very colorful rug or bath mat.

  2. Thank you for sharing this.

    I have an afghan I started many years ago (27) and have been trying to figure out the stitches used. I was assuming that I needed to chain three in one portion but looking at your pattern I see that it is only a chain two needed.

    All the other patterns I found that appeared similar had too many double crochets inbetween the hill and the valley.. yours is the exact same amount!

    Very pleased to know I will be doing this project correctly now.

  3. Thanks for sharing this very simple and beautiful stripe ripple.

    I have only been doing crochet blankets for the last 4 years, but only this year to venture to reading crochet patterns.

    There is a great joy in creating something beautiful with worst yarn, which we call 8 ply in Australia and learning the US version.

    Thanks again and you have inspired me to start my own blog
