Crochet Ripple Afghan



Pin It
I used to make Ripple pattern when was about 13 years old. I did totally forgot how to do it. I found a friend making a tie for her husband using the same pattern. And all the memory came back to me.

I making this for a special Aunt. She barely leaves home because of health condition. I am praying not only she feels love whenever she uses it, also God will bring healing to her.



This woman is has a big heart to help and serve. Ginger used to crochet beautiful laces and baby blanket for my kids. I would love God to heal her.

Pattern. You will need:

Crochet hook size: 4.5 mm
I used red heart yarn
HDC: Half Double Crochet

First row: I started with 286 chain.
Second Row: 13 HDC, then increase four HDC in one chain.Next, do another 13 HDC and skip four chains.

After that continue by repeating until you think that is the size you want. I stopped at 80 rows.

You will run in to mistakes too many times. So, keep looking at your work more often.

Happy Crocheting to you! I love reading your comments and thank you for stopping by.

  7. I am one of those people who crochet but don't know the official names for half the stitches lol. I love the ripple look though and really need to make a blanket using this! I have one that I found at a thrift store, but I'd love another that I made myself!

    Visiting you from Fluster's Creative Muster!

  9. Lovely colors! I've been working on one of these blankets on and off for more than a year now, but keep putting it off because I dread weaving in all my tails. I should probably just get over it though, because the ripples really are so sweet when it's all done!
