How to Crochet the Ripple Stitch

A timeless classic, you can't go wrong with a ripple stitch blanket. I've made hundreds since I've been crocheting and I'm still not bored of making them. You can find a link to the video tutorial at the bottom of this post.

Materials Needed:

  • Crochet Hook in correct size for yarn weight
  • Crochet hook ONE size bigger for starting chain.
  • Embroidery Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

Stiches Used:

  • ch - Chain
  • dc - Double Crochet
  • dc2tog - Double Crochet 2 Together (Double Crochet Decrease)
  • dc inc - Double Crochet Increase (2dc worked into same stitch)

Pattern:

  • Foundation Row: With larger hook, work in multiples of 14 + 3  until you reach desired width. For baby blankets I chain 115 (7 x 14 stiches, plus 3 for the turning chain)
  • Row 1: Switch to smaller hook. Into 4th ch from hook work dc, dc into next 4 ch, *work dc2tog over next 2 ch, work another dc2tog across the next 2 ch, dc into next 4 ch, work dc inc into next ch, work another dc inc into next ch, dc into next 4 ch* Repeat from *to* until one stitch remains, work dc inc into last ch. Ch2 & Turn.
  • Row 2 (Repeat Row): Work dc into same stitch as turning ch, dc into next 4 stitches, *work dc2tog over next 2 stiches, work another dc2tog across the next 2 stitches, dc into next 4 stitches, work dc inc into next stitch, work another dc inc into next stich, dc into next 4 stitches* Repeat from *to* until one stitch remains, work dc inc into turning chain from previous row. Ch2 & Turn.
  • Rest of Pattern: Repeat Row 2 until project is desired size. Break yarn and sew in ends.

    I love the Ripple Stitch tutorial. It's easy to follow. Though it's been a while since I visited your site, I was surprised to see you no longer operate the yarn shop. There's so much to learn here. Well done
