Summer time ripple: the graphic pattern

Good morning!

This is as promised the “how to” for “summer time” ripple blanket.

To begin, you have to make a chain : multiple of 11 + 4… I suggest, just to try out the pattern, to make as in the graphic here a chain of 37 ! ((3×11) +4 = 37) and when you try out and you’re ready to start you’ll make a much bigger chain as big as you want your blanket to be…


For Christina’s blanket I started with a chain of 114 (that is (10×11) +4 = 114) which is large enough for a six years girl blanket :)

This is a close-up for the valley ;) (leaving 2 stitches of the previous row and crochet in the 3d one)

and this is a close-up of the mountain ;) (working 3 treble in the same stitch of the previous row)

It is very very easy to follow…you’ll see when you’ll try…

You have only to begin with the correct number of chain (always a multiple of 11 + 4) and follow the graphic chart…

Happy crocheting :)

    Thanks Angie. Beautifully explained as always. I’m looking forward to seeing how you will edge this blanket!

      I have done this exact same pattern many times… only I use all double crochets all through and it is such a fast and easy pattern…matter of fact I am making one now and I have an i82 yr old client who wants to learn it after she finishes her other project which is a chenille SC ghan for her daughter…

      • Nana says:

        I see you have made this several times. I really like the pattern but I am not at all clear on the graphic method instead of a written pattern. I submitted a request as did several other readers but no response so far. Is there any chance you could write out instructions? I would so appreciate it and think others would also.

        • Anna says:

          Basic pattern would be to chain your foundation row. For example 11x 10 + 4 or 114 for a small afghan, then starting in the 4th stitch from the hook treble (or double stitch) in the next 5 stitches, skip 2 and treble (or double) in next 5 stitches. In the next stitch do 3 trebles ( or doubles) Repeat across until you get to the end. Chain 3 and turn. Repeat the 5 stitches, skip2, 5 stitches. 3 in one across. The only difference is that you won’t skip 4 this time. I hope that helps

  16. Tammy says:

    Whenever there are “valleys” I seem to have a problem with matching them up. :/ No matter how much I count, seems things don’t turn out quite right. I haven’t tried a ripple yet but will add it to my list. :) Hazy and hot here today. Hope all is well where you are. Tammy

  17. Sarah says:

  20. bri butler says:

    *Happy Dance* Thank you so much for sharing this! I have never understood how ripples are made, and I just bought a pattern book. My problem is that I am TERRIBLE with reading patterns. I need to see the visual diagram to know what I am doing. YAY! now, I have that :D

  21. Lizzie says:

    Love this blanket so much I’m doing one and have done 11 colour changes of ripples so far. Please will you let me have details of the border design you decide on. Thanks in advance.

  22. Katrin W. says:

  25. Laurence says:

    Thank you for this variation of a pattern for a ripple blanket!

    If you feel like trying sth new, you could hop over to Lucy from “attic 24″, she has a slightly different pattern that works out quite nicley as well!

  26. Peggie says:

    This is beautiful. I’m not good at ripples, but I thought I may could do this
    with your great instructions.
    Thank you so much for sharing it.

  27. Amanda says:

    Thanks so much this will be the next blanket I do after I finish my current two ripple blankets. This one seems just as simple but has such a different look of the soft wavy ones I’m working on right now. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  28. Brenda Jones says:

    Hi I love your blog and visit it often. I was wondering how to make the blanket smaller for a baby I tried cutting back on the amount of stitches but am not sure what would be the appropriate size for a newborn baby. 114 seems to be crib size and I would like to make it smaller do you think 11×5+4=59 would be a good size for a baby? And congrats on the new little one!!!


  29. c’est tellement bien expliqué que j’ai commencé hier, je mets une photo sur mon blog demain, encore merci pour tes explications, bisous

  30. Liane Barone says:

    Angie am currently making your summer time ripple blanket. When its complete should there be a row of single crochet along the sides to finish the blanket or just leave it as is? Love all your designs – have made four ponchos and several afghans using a number of your edgings.

  31. Miss Tejidos says:

    Thank you very much for this tutorial.
    I am currently making this blanket and I find it super!

  33. Kelli says:

    Thank you so much for this pattern. I am working on my second baby blanket and this was so easy to follow even as a complete beginner. Its going to be nice…

  34. Julie says:

    What size hook did you use?

  35. Troipom says:

    Je viens de le finir et j’ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à le faire!
    Mille merci à toi!!!

  36. Obrigada pela dica. Amei agora fica bem simples e fácil de fazer.
    Tenha uma ótima semana.

  37. Heather says:

    What is the gauge? Or how wide the blanket is? Either one can help me determine the amt of chain stitches I need.

  38. Astra says:

    J’adore ton site, les modèles sont faciles a comprendre, beaucoup plus que les longues lignes de textes qu’on trouve souvent, c’est plein de couleurs, ca donne envie de tout essayer :) MERCI

  39. joelle says:

    bonjour sucrette, je viens souvent chez toi regarder les modèles de couverture, je débute au crochet et j’ai essayé le modèle vagues summer time ripple.
    Pourrais tu me dire la quantité de laine qu’il faudrait prévoir environ pour un plaid pour ma fille ado, à mettre sur son lit.
    (140 sur 160 environ)
    Comme tu as fait beaucoup de couverture peut être as tu une idée?
    je voudrai une laine crochetée en 5 ou 6.
    Merci pour ton site qui est un régal des yeux et une mine d’or pour moi.

  40. rochelle cullers says:

    The ripple is my favorite crochet pattern. I just discovered this one and I LOVE IT! I want to make this right away. Thanks for sharing this amazing pattern. You are clearly a very talented and creative person and I want to be like you when and if I ever grow up. Thanks again for all you do.


  41. judy Pulley says:

    would love to be on your e-mailing list to see new patterns and such.

  42. dj hixson says:

    would rather have written pattern,thanks anyway,will try to understand graph

  43. Elaine says:

    Is there somewhere I can just get a written pattern for this?

  44. Linda C. says:

    Is it possible to get a written pattern for this and also the “Grandma and me” blanket? Love them both. Thanks, Linda

  45. kelly says:

    Is this stich done with treble or double crochet, I see you say treble but I am in usa…so is it uk or usa?

  46. Kikivits says:

    Thank you! I ‘ll give it a try!

  47. Gail says:

    Thank you so much for the lovely pattern. I have never attempted a ripple pattern before because they appeared so intimidating. With your instructions seeming so easy, I cannot wait to start my first ripple. I am sure my 4 projects on the go right now are going to take a back seat until I finish this one!

  48. Elaine stone says:

    I did not understand the pattern. What kind of stitch. I need ore information in the pattern please

  49. Michelle Costanzo says:

    I would love the actual written pattern. I dont understand how to read the diagram’s. Would it be possible to get the written patterns as well as the diagram’s so that i can look at them both and maybe learn how to read them. I love all of your work. It is so bright and cheerful! Keep them coming, i love looking at your work.

  50. Gramma Judy says:

    I will attempt to answer the questions nobody has so far. The size of the hook is a 4.5mm as shown in the picture, that translates to American size G. Even though she says to do triple crochets, the symbol on the chart denotes what Americans would call a double crochet.

  51. Gail says:

    I love this..I would like to make a king size one.How many chains would I need..Thank you

  52. jill says:

    I made the sample using a n hook and it measured 12 inches
