Great ripple afghan pattern from the very talented Lucy of Attic24! Easy to follow, fun to crochet and watch the different colors appear. The baby blanket size is a good stash buster too. Once you'll make one ripple blanket for someone, you'll see: everyone wants one! Plan on using up all the leftovers you have in the house.
When I made my first ripple blanket last year (finished in August 2008), I followed a pattern in Jan Eatons book (the Soft Waves pattern), and it has to be said that at first this pattern was not plain sailing. But I persevered and eventually I cracked it. But truthfully I always think crochet patterns look and sound far too complex, more than they actually need to be. 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. Just so's you know.(Source: attic24)
