Lacy Round Ripple Blanket

This is a round ripple with a lace column at the valley. It is a twelve-point star and can be made in a solid color or with various colors. It can be made as a baby blanket, lap blanket or throw.

The example is made in a bulky weight acrylic yarn, so measurements and yarn requirements are given for that, but the blanket can be made an any weight yarn. Use hook appropriate to yarn weight.

Size: This blanket can be made any size. Five widths are given in the directions.

Repeat rounds 17 through 22 until blanket is desired size.

The blanket can be made in a solid color or can be made with any number of color changes. The best way to make a color change is to complete all but the last slip stitch at the beginning of a round. Cut yarn with a few inches of tail and join with new color next to stitch. Pull new color through for the slip stitch. Weave in ends.

  1. Beautiful! Thank you for the pattern. I’ll definitely add this to my to-do list.

  2. I agree! I will try it in worsted weight yarn because I have a lot of it. Perfect for stash-busting!

  3. Adding my sincere thanks. I want to make a blanket for a special babe, and this is PERFECT! Thank you, thank you!

  4. Beautiful blanket. I am currently working on this. I think I’m having a wee bit of a problem. What is your stitch count on the non-flower section starting from round 17. I have 5 dc on either side of the point on rnd 17. Is that right? So could you tell me your stitch count on rows 18, 19, 20 and so on up to the end of your blanket that you have pictured.

    Thanks, Mary

    • Here is a little chart with the number on either side of the point, the number in the point and the total in each panel. My blanket has 25 rounds, but I will extend the chart beyond that.

      • Many thanks for your lovely pattern, must have taken you ages writing it all out. I am now on row 16 of the pattern and find it very easy to follow. So many thanks again for sharing it also your time and patience doing all this.
        Must admit I started it to see what it looked like using DK wool and a size 3.50 hook……fell in love with it and shall carry on till I have a sizeable blanket……working in pale lilac. Take care and keep up the good work. X

  5. Beautiful blanket. Thanks for the pattern. Are we allowed to sell products made from your pattern?

    Thanks and Have a good evening
    Gwen

  6. So pretty, I just have to make one or more. Thank you so much.

  7. this is a beautiful afghan. I am a beginner at crochet. can you tell me what a chain space stitch is? thank you

    • When you make crochet stitches, you can make the stitches in chains or in stitches from prior rows. You can also make stitches in spaces formed by chains between stitches. That’s what a chain space is.

    • A chain space isn’t actually a stitch, as in Row 3 of the pattern. It’s the space created by having made a chain stitch in the previous row.

      For instance, when you finish Row 2, you’ll have a row of alternating double crochet and chain stitches. When you go to work Row 3, you’ll stitch in the spaces made between the double crochet stitches of Row 2 instead of having to make your stitches in the little chain stitches themselves. Hope this helps clear things up for you!

  8. Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I’m now up to round 13 and really pleased with myself because this is a bit of a departure for me from my usual choice of very simplistic patterns.

    Up until row 10 you tell us how many d-c shells and v-stiches there should be on each round. I have been using this as a check and found it extremely useful. I’m now getting a little lost though and wonder if you would mind continuing for the rest of the pattern? I can see your reply to Mary on March 11th but I don’t think I’ve got to that stage yet, so its not making sense right now.

    Thanks

    Catrin

  9. Ahhh thank you, and for such a speedy response! I get it now!

  10. So pretty! Thank you for sharing your gift with us :-) I love all your patterns.

    On this, I wondered if you could tell me which round would be a good color change if I wanted to have the center lace work one color and then start another color when it begins to build the panels? Does that start at Rnd 12?

    Thanks
    Valerie

    Your lacy round ripple blanket is AWESOME!!!
    Im having trouble with rnd 7. I was wondering if you could make a pic of the middle so I can what Im doing wrong. I tried to enlarge the picture but couldn’t tell. Thank you for your time.

  12. just beautiful, thanks!

  13. Gorgeous blanket I’m making it for my friends baby but I’m stuck on Rbd 7! Are the ‘v’ shapes parallel to the prev row and the loops over the shell bits?

    Many thanks

  14. This is a beautiful blanket! Your pattern instructions are nice and clear and I’m having a jolly time making this jewel. Thanks so much for your time and for sharing the pattern.

  15. You have a very lovely blanket. It combines 2 things I like in crocheting afghans; it’s round and it’s also a ripple. I am adding this to my long list of must does. I want to become self-employed and sell crocheted items and take orders. It is so time consuming and I keep getting interrupted.

  16. Please help clarify this for me? Row 13 doesn’t make sense to me. With only 4 dc in the ch 2 sp from row 11, then skip I dc, dc in next dc, dc ch 2 dc in ch 2 space, dc in next dc…skip to row 13, and how do you skip 2 dc, dc in next dc, etc? I have read and read the directions, and ripped those three rows out 7 times. PLEASE help! Thank you!

    • One of the dc you are skipping is in the lace panel (the last dc of the shell) and the other in the ripple panel. You will always just skip one dc on either side of the ripple panel.

  17. I’m almost done with my blanket and its very bunched up at each part that the pattern said to skip a chain 3 space and skip a ch 1 sp. Should in have added a chain between each v-stitch and shell?

    • I’ve seen several of these done successfully, so it shouldn’t need a chain there. If you could send me a picture that it close enough I can see the stitch detail, I may be able to diagnose the issue.

  18. That would be very helpful; thank you! How do I send a picture?

  19. I am confused and unsure if my blanket looks right , i am on round 13 but I am thinking that mine looks different from yours. Maybe i cant tell at 13 can you look at my pics anf tell me if I have this right or wrong please. At level 13 should I have 3 on each side or 6 total on tthe point,

  20. As much as I adore this design. I think i cant get past row 13:( I am gonna scap this project sadly. I may not be advanced enough to finish. Do you also sell these blankets. I have 5 skeins of caron simply soft in watermellon color . I wanted to make this for my teen daughter.

    • I hate for you to give up. Everything was perfect up to round 13. Once you get past 13 you will sail because the rounds are basically the same for the rest of the blanket. What can I do to help?

  21. Collette Griffith

    How large would a Pounder make this afghan?

  22. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern – I am so in love with it that I have made 2 already and will be starting the 3rd tomorrow

  23. However I don’t have bulky yarn .but I do have the worsted regular yarn lots of it ….what size hook you would recommend for this project

  24. I started this blanket this morning but my center portion isn’t laying flat.. is this normal? Will it straighten out once I start the points? Or have I messed up somewhere?

  25. Whenever you have just ch, is that a chain 1?

  26. This is just lovely and I appreciate the stitch count chart.I don’t make many blankets because I don’t have the patience, but this one is going to be my next project.thank you!

  27. I love the round ripple blanket, esp your touch of the lace in the valley. You do very good work.

  28. I have several skeins of light raspberry and cafe latte so I figured that now Christmas is over, it may just be time for me. To make an afghan for me. If as in a prior post you stated that changing colors between rounds 11 and 12 seems like a nice place to do so, I’m wondering if changing colors (back and forth) every 6 rows or so would be a good number to settle on. Keeping rounds 1-11 one color and switching between the 2 colors I have chosen every 6 rounds after that. My only issue is that you state in the pattern explanation to repeat rows 17-22 for length of pattern so my count would be off from 12-17 is only 5 rows, but will it be noticeable?

    • Go ahead and complete your 6 round color set. The blanket can be ended on any round, so I think keeping with your 6 rounds per color will look magnificent.

  29. You are very talented to create such a beautiful afghan and very sweet to be so encouraging to everyone trying to master it. Thank you!

  30. Wonderful pattern! I made mine in mint green, and it turned out fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talent with us!

  31. This is a lovely pattern.I haven’t crocheted for quite a few years now & would love to make this for my niece.I’m having trouble understanding the number count row 8 with ** (dc, (ch, dc) four times) in next ch-3. Does this mean I do a total of 4 or 8 dc’s in each 3 chain sp.Everything else is straight forward and easy to understand always have trouble when a pattern says 3 times,4 times never understand exactly how many there is meant to be.

    • You will actually end up with 5 dc in that chain-3 space. They will have chains between them –

      dc, ch, dc, ch, dc, ch, dc, ch, dc

      • Ok i had to look in comments this needs to be edited :-) rnd 8 it shouldnt say (dc,(ch,dc) four times) thats misleading your wanting us to to dc, then (ch,dc) four times in same ch3 space. Otherwise your telling us to repeat that extra dc 4 times ending up with 8dc. I was wondering how you got 5 dc shells.

        • (dc, (ch, dc) four times) in next ch-3 sp
          “in next ch-3 sp” is after the outer parentheses so applies to the whole portion, so it is all to be made in that one ch-3 sp.
          “four times” is after the inner parentheses so only applies to the “ch, dc” portion.
          The result is 5 dc separated by chains.

  32. Wow. It is so lovely. I will have to try and make this. Love the color too. Thanks for sharing Mal

  33. I can’t get the patterns to print out. Goes to print something .com and never loads.

    • If what you see is a page at Printfriendly.com that says “Your Print Friendly Page is Generating” and “This takes a few seconds” underneath it, I can reproduce that by disabling JavaScript. Could that be the case for you? It looks like it is required for the Print Friendly service.

  34. Love the afgan, but Seriously the directions have to be worked on.

  35. Hi
    I just found this pattern…oh so pretty.
    I’ve done a few rows just to get the feel of it, at the same time read mama’s answers to all those questions. I must say your very patient and an awe fully nice person.
    My question is, after wasting almost a week and a half with a Bernat pattern, horrid instructions, I’d like to know if it will be possible to expand your pattern to king size. I love the pointed afghans and yours has the beautiful bonus of being lacy. Thanks Mama…keep on smiling

    • The largest one I have seen made on Ravelry is 72″ in diameter, but I’m sure it can just keep going. It will get more pointy the larger it gets.

      • Sylvia L. Rodriguez

        Thank you for a great new baby pattern. I am going to make a
        baby and a adult one. A friend taught me the stitches and took off from there. I use patterns and samples to make afghan.s Thank you ever so much.
        Sylvia L. Rodriguez

  36. I think this would be very pretty as table cloth , just keep going.

  37. Learned crocheting , knitting in 4 th grade , Vienna , Austria. ..pregnant and wanting to make booties for baby 11 years later in U S A , bought pattern which sounded GREEK to me…. Bought adorable Booties, unraveled Stich by Stich,…. BABY Barbara , 65 years old now, ended up with 12 pair of Booties.. I hope you are smiling !
    I am an 89 year old “WAR BRIDE ” and enjoy looking and reading patterns.

    Sincerely,

  38. Do you think you could use this pattern to make a doily? It is so pretty. I would love to try it but I thought I would ask to see it anyone else has done it. Thanks!

    • I haven’t seen it done, but I think it should work great as a doily, and you could make it whatever size you needed.

      • Having been on a raging doily kick for the last few weeks, that was my first thought also! LOL Thos will most likely be my next one!!

  39. Hi I am just finishing off this lovely and unusual throw for my granddaughter. I did make a couple of mistakes in the pattern bug I think it still turned out lovely. Thankyou so much for sharing such a pretty pattern.

  40. Love this pattern, making it with Bernet Softiee Baby yarn, on row 12 and i am liking how it looks. Thank you for sharing your patterns.

  41. Do you turn after each round or just work continuously. Mwember of our Church’s Prayer Shawl Ministry. This will be a lovely gift to someone who is sick.
    Thanks for your help

    • Work continuously, so all work is done on the “front”. There are instructions included on each round for progressing to the next round.

  42. Thanks for another beautiful pattern! You are so creative and very kind to share so many lovely patterns in knit and crochet :)

  43. I Just love your Pattern copied it i will make a baby Blanked Thank you very very mutch.

  44. There are around six mothers-to-be in my life right now. I have found Patons “Beehive” reasonably priced. Would this be appropriate for the Lacy Round Ripple blanket? I don’t want anything too heavy.

    • There are probably three dozen styles of Patons Beehive, so I don’t know about weight, but any would work great for this blanket.

  45. Love the pattern but round 10is bothering me. I have 3 chain 3 clusters. I did the 5 doubles then says to skip the next chain 3 and the chain 1. But I have two chain 3’s to skip before skipping the chain 1. What am I doing wrong?

    • On round 9 you made groups of 3 3-ch loops separated by v-stitches. On round 9 you should have slip stitched across to make the middle 3-ch loop and then at the end of the round, made the first 3-ch loop of that group. So on round 10, you should be beginning on the middle 3-ch loop of the group of 3. So the 5 doubles are worked in that middle loop, then you will skip the third loop and a ch-1 to work next in the v-stitch.

      • Thank you!

        • Hey, I’ve wanted to make this pattern for a while now. I’m also stuck on row 10. If I just skip the 1st chain 3 then do the 5dc then skip skip it just pulled the blanket ruffed together. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

          • Did you start round 9 by slip stitching over to the second shell space so that you made your center loop first? Then you should have ended your 9th round with the first loop on that shell. So when you begin round 10, you should be between the first and second loops so that you can just slip stitch into the second loop and start your first shell.

  46. What is the correction for R7? I cannot find it. Thx.

  47. I noticed you made a correction on March 28, 2013, but the date about the pdf print reads March 5, 2013, how do we know we have the corrected one?

    • The March 5 date is the initial publication date of the pattern. If the pdf was generated after March 28, 2013 (so that the file is dated after that), it would include the correction.

  48. I am on row 39…. Great pattern, easy to do and absolutely lovely. Thanks so much for sharing! Mine is a pretty green & I am considering adding flowers when I finish. Ahhhh, the possibilities :-)

  49. I walked into patients room at hospital where I work. There in the bed was a man crocheting. This is the pattern he was working on. I fell in love with this pattern and quickly searched and found it. Did mine in bright yellow and white. 5 rows white, 2 yellow thru out, finishing with yellow. did have to start over several times, but OMG I love it and already bought yarn for another.

  50. I love the looks of this afghan. I have 40 oz of a very pretty varigated yarn that has been discontinued. This may be the perfect pattern for it. As I live in Florida, my one piece afghans are on hold.until cooler weather arrives in the fall, but this may be the exception! I can’t wait to get started, but.must finish Mom’s Mothers Day gift first.

  51. I love this pattern…. However, I cannot no matter what I do get row 7. I know it has been redone on the pattern but I must be dumb ahahaha…. Is there a way to do a video for round 7? there are so many ch sp i am ending up with more than 12 of each stitch. Thanks!

  52. I’m not sure if I messed this up…I’m trying to get this done for my mother-in-laws 80th birthday 5/31… I’m on row 13. I don’t see a pattern and I think I mixed stitches using ‘in the spaces’ and ‘in the dc’… the dc’s don’t look like they are in the right positions at the points. Should I rip this out and start over… using Red Heart soft(4)with a 6G hook Teal. I don’t think I can submits pic with this…

  53. IGETITNOW!! By the tome I hit row 8:the (5-dc-ch)fans are in the 3-chains from the previous row and the v-stitches have to line up together!!! yeah! Glad I ripped the whole lot out and started again

  54. Thank you so much for the video. I have been reading over the pattern for weeks trying go figure out what I was missing and was about to give up.

  55. Tracy Cedarleaf

    I don’t understand how to do the (Dc(ch Dc) four times. I love this pattern. Could you please explain how to do this stitch? Thanks

    • In the loop indicated, dc, then ch, then dc in the same loop, then ch, then dc in the same loop, then ch, then dc in the same loop, then ch, then dc in the same loop.

  56. I am new to crochet! Does (ch3,scin next ch sp)twice mean all in the same ch sp or in 2 seperate ch spaces. I have been doing it in 2 seperate spaces but want to clarify before I go any further.
    All my v stitches and shells match up but when I got to row 11 and now row 15 I only have 4 dcs in my starting point for the rounds. I would be grateful for your help as it is such a lovely pattern and I don’ t want to give up. I am determined to finish it!!!

    • Seperate, the key word in the repeat being “next”, so it sounds like you are doing it correctly. Having only 4 dcs in the shell instead of 5 would be a problem.

      • Thank you.
        After repeatedly making the same mistake over and over at the starting point from row 9 it finally dawned on me that I was misreading the pattern and leaving out a dc. Hopefully I can now finish it with no more problems.

  57. Hey, this is a beautiful pattern! Thank you for sharing – I was just wondering if it would be ok to seel items made using this pattern – you’d get credit of course! I just thought that I would ask :)

  58. I love this pattern,but I’m having a difficult time with the beginning of the 5 single crochets. When you do 3 then 4 . I don’t get it. Do yo have a video for rows 9 and beyond? Thanks so much

    • It may be a while before I can make a complete video for this blanket. I don’t want to leave you in a lurch though, so I hope I can still help you through this. I have been studying the pattern and am not sure what you are referring to with “the beginning of the 5 single crochets. When you do 3 then 4″.

  59. I love this pattern. I made the blanket for my sister-in-law. After I finished it, I decided to make a tablecloth with cotton yarn. It came out great! I am now making another tablecloth for a friend who loves the pattern too!

  60. Hello Mama,

    I started your beautiful Lacy Round Ripple blanket today and was so pleased with the way it was turning out and all of a sudden it wasn’t laying flat and I found I only had 12 dc’s per panel on round 27. I haven’t been able to figure out where the increases are. Could you please tell me what I have done wrong. My pattern is dated March 5, 2013. How can I get a corrected version of this pattern?

    Sincerely,

    Thank you so much for your help.

    • You probably have the latest version. The March 5, 2013 date is the initial publication date. There was only one edit, on March 28, 2013. It would not affect your dc count in the panels.

      The increases are happening on all the rounds where (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) are made at the center of the panels.

      Make sure that on the sides of the panels you are only skipping one dc on each side. On the odd numbered rows, the instruction “skip 2 dc” is skipping the last dc of the shell and the first dc of the panel, but others have misinterpreted that to mean to skip 2 dc on the panel.

      • Hello Mama,

        I feel so stupid now that I did skip the 2 dc on the panel. Thank you so much for getting me straightened out and I am now on Row 20 and doing it right and it is so beautiful. It is so wonderful that you help those of us with problems following your patterns correctly. Thanks again.

        Lois

  61. I am on row 19 and loving this pattern. I am doing it in cream and watermelon for a baby girl. My twist is the afghan is cream with the lacy shells in watermelon.

  62. Just completed one of these in super bulky chenille baby yarn. I love this pattern! Seven balls of Bernat Baby Blanket gave me 48″ from point to point with an N hook.

  63. Hi I’m currently working on this I’m semi new to crocheting and well I followed your video for this pattern then tries to follow the pattern for this which I’m so lost now…. I just did round 17 and ended with only 3 DC in each panel. So here are my questions. By panel you mean each side if the point correct?I mean not including the stitches in the point correct? So Idfk if i messed up before this round or if I’m just misunderstanding the pattern. I wish u would add on to your videos! I love this pattern just Im really bad at readingvpatterns. Thanks mama!!!

    • I’m using the term panel for the entire portion between the lacy inserts. In the round by round chart of the stitches in the panels, I give the breakdown by “dc on either side of point”, “dc in the point” and “total dc per panel”.

      So after your Round 17, you have 3 dc on either side of the point instead of 4. I know there has been some confusion on my odd numbered rows when I say skip 2 dc because one of those dc is in the lace panel and one in the solid panel.

      Generally this is how it is working. The two dc on the sides of the panel are not worked and either 2 or 4 dc are made in the point. For rows with 2 dc in the point, the total number of panel stitches stay the same. When 4 dc are worked in the point, the total number of panel stitches increases by 2. On the row after a 2-dc point, the same number of dc stitches will be made on either side of the point. On rows following a 4-dc point, an additional dc stitch will be made on either side of the point than the prior row.

  64. I wrote earlier that I made a tablecloth with cotton yarn. Now my mother would like one, but she has a square table. Is there anyone who knows how to modify this pattern into a square? I know that granny squares start out round and go into a square, but I am not sure how to get this pattern to do this. Any ideas? Thank you for any help you can give me.

    • It would have to be pretty radically modified to be a square. I think it would have much more solid area and less lace area. Granny squares go from being round to square by the fourth round. As this is now, it is perfectly round through the first dozen rows.

  65. Would it be possible to upload a picture of this? It would be great to see how everyone’s blankets came out. I would also like to upload a pic of my tablecloth for everyone to see.

    • We are currently working on improvements to the site that would accommodate uploading photos of finished projects. Before that gets implemented, the only way to show off your finished projects is to e-mail pictures to me and let me know if you give consent to have your picture(s) posted as a blog entry on the site with any comments you’d like to make.

      Pictures can be e-mailed to mama at thetucker dot com.

  66. I was given an unfinished project. It’s very hard for me to figure out what it is. I have been looking at ALL kinds of patterns and some come close. This one is the closest BUT it’s not round. I wish I could post a picture. maybe you could tell me what it is :(

  67. I am having problems with rnds 8-10, esp rnd 9 with all of the sl st in the beginning. I also only come up with 12-4 dc shells in row 8. What am I doing wrong ?

    • The instruction for the shells on round 8 is “dc, (ch, dc) four times”. Making the dc before the chain and dc that are repeated four times would make a five dc shell.

      If I explain why all the slip stitching at the beginning of the 9th round, I hope that will help understand it. After round 9, you will have three ch-3 loops over each 5-dc shell. On round 10 you will be making 5-dc shells in each of the center loops. If you had not slip stitched over to the second ch-1 space of that shell on round 9, you would have to do a bunch of slip stitching on round 10 to skip the first 3-ch space to get to the second one to make the shell. Since that is the lacy part, having that slip stitching on that loop would not look nice, so that is why I opted slip stitch on round 9 to get into the correct position. On that first lace panel of round 9 you will complete the last two 3-ch loops of that first shell, then after working your way all the way around, you will work the first one of that shell. Then when you begin round 10, you are right there between the first and second loop of that lace panel to begin your shell in the second one.

  68. Hello,
    I am enjoying this pattern so far, but am having some trouble beginning at row 10. Starting there, I am making a shell of 5 double crochets in the second, or center, of the group of three three-chain loops, correct? I’m good once I get going, but how do I get from the joining slip stitch at the end of row 9 over to the second of the three chain loops without things looking lumpy? If I follow the directions the way I am understanding them, then the first 5 double crochet shell is made in the 1st of the three-chain loops. If, on the other hand, I do my joining slip stitch , and then slip stitch over to the second of the three-chain loops, that spot looks lumpy at the beginning of every even row.

  69. I’m confused with Rnd 8. It says the total is “12 5-dc shells”. What is considered a shell? is it dc ch1 dc? I feel like I’m stupid for not getting it. I’m in the process of moving and crocheting is my “break time”. Lol

    • As you know, V-stitches and Shells differ from pattern to pattern. In this one:
      V-stitch = dc, 2 ch, dc worked in the same space
      3-dc shell = dc, ch, dc, ch, dc worked in the same space
      5-dc shell = dc, ch, dc, ch, dc, ch, dc, ch, dc worked in the same space

    • HHHEEELLLLLPPPPP

      I’ve restarted this blanket at least 3 times. Round 8, I get the first part, but after the ch 4 – you state (dc, (ch,dc) three times) but the rest are four times. What comes out is 11 5-dc shells. Then at the end of the round I finish with a 5dc shell right against the beginning one with 4. WHAT am I doing wrong?!

  70. Hi Mama
    I love this project
    I’m just wondering what I’m doing wrong
    Mine is not flat it’s very bunched / curly
    Can you please tell why this is happening
    I’m using a bulky yarn and 5.5 hook . Is the yarn maybe too chunky?
    Thankyou

  71. Im confused with round 12 about skipping dc, then dc in next dc, skipping next dc, then dc, ch2, dc. Its not lining up. Please help.

    • That section is a bit different than what you listed. I don’t know if that is the confusion. It should be “skip the next ch-1 sp, skip the next dc, dc in next dc, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch-2 sp”.

      The blanket consist of rippled panels of double crochets with lace columns between. On odd rows, the lace column has three ch-3 loops with a ch-1 on either side. On even rows, the lace column has a shell of 5 dc separated by a ch. The rippled panels have dc in each dc except for one on either side. The center of the panel either has a shell of (dc, ch 2, dc) or (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in it.

      On the odd rows, you slip stitch over so that you begin on the middle 3-ch of the lace panel. You finish the round with the final 3-ch loop of that panel. This sets up for the even row beginning at this middle 3-ch, putting the shell there. You will have a shell in each of the center 3-ch loops around.

      I hope this helps.

  72. I was following this, then your videos helped me a lot and now I am completely stuck on Round 9. I read after that it gets easier but I don’t know what it means by slip stitch in double crochet. The very opening piece to it.
    Really wish you had more videos.

    • I do plan on making more videos, but don’t know when that will be. I will try to explain the beginning of row 9 for you.

      The beginning of round 8 has “ch 4 (counts as dc and ch), (dc, (ch, dc) three times) in same ch-3 sp”. This is a shell of 5 dc spokes separated by a ch where the first spoke is made of three ch. When you finish round 8 and come back around to the beginning of the round, you slip stitch to join the third chain, which is the equivalent of the first dc of this shell.

      Now to explain why I have all the slip stitching at the beginning of round 9 – Round 9 puts sc in each of the ch-1 spaces between the spokes of the shell. That is 4 sc. The sc are separated by 3 ch. This forms 3 3-ch loops on top of each shell. Looking ahead to round 10, there will be a shell made in the center 3-ch loop of these 3 loops. To set up for round 10, I am having you slip stitch across to the second ch-1 space of that first shell so that you make the 2nd loop of the three loops first. At the end of the round at the very end you will made the 1st loop of these three and join between the 1st and 2nd loop. That will put you at the center loop for beginning the shell of round 10.

      So Rnd 9 begins “Sl st, in ch sp, sl st in dc, sl st in ch sp, ch 1, sc in same ch sp, (ch 3, sc in next ch sp) twice”. At the end of row 8 you slip stitched in the 3rd ch to join the round. Now you will slip stitch into the ch sp which was formed by the 4th chain of row 8. Then you will slip stitch in the dc which is the second spoke of the shell, then slip stitch in the next ch-1 space which is the second space of the shell. Ch 1 to give space to make a sc then make a sc in that space. After that you begin making the loops. This moved you to the place to make the second loop on that shell.

      As for how to actually make the slip stitch, insert the hook in the referenced stitch or space, yarn over and pull the loop through the loop on the hook.

  73. Hi there Mama I was just following your pattern on youtube and got to row 8 to this beautiful Lacy Round Ripple blanket and now I am having trouble with row 9. Will you be doing part 3 on you tube.

    Thanks Rose

    • I’m working on getting a better setup for videos but that may take a while. What part of the row is confusing? I may be able to talk you through it.

  74. What brand, weight and color(name) yarn did you use for this amazing project?

    • Rainbow Classic by Jo-Ann Sensations Bulky 100% Acrylic 501 Green Solid. That line has been discontinued and replaced by Purl Essence Rainbow Yarn.

  75. I am only on row 6 and its bunching up bad is it uploaded to do that?

    • The center part has a lot of 3-chain loops. These want to spread out to the side and make it ripply. After 15 or 20 rows, the subsequent rows start pulling on those 3-chain loops to make them longer rather than wide to make it lay more flat.

  76. I’m working on this pattern and find it getting confusing once I get to row 22 the pattern said to repeat rows 17-22so I have and the blanket is curling up and I’m not sure if I am using the wrong weight yarn . I’m using an h hook with Bernat softee baby yarn light 3 would this cause problems with the blanket turning out right .
    Thanks for your time .

    • If you could send me a picture that is close enough to one of the “spokes” that I can see the stitches, maybe I could diagnose the problem.

  77. Wish you had a chart pattern…I find them very easy to work from…any chance of getting this charted out?

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful pattern

    Carol

  78. Hi there, we having been travelling around the North Island in our campervan for the past 7 weeks. We are expecting a new grandchild in April so I bought some yarn and a crochet hook 2 weeks ago and am half way through this beautiful shawl. I am making it in white baby double knit and am delighted with the result. Once I made my brain alter from US instructions to UK I have been able to fly through the instructions. I particularly like the chart you included. > >Thank you for sharing. Judy, Upper Hutt, NZ

  79. Hello,

    I am in LOVE with this blanket and found the video tutorial on YouTube but there is only part 1 and a 1 minute 30 second 2nd video. It ends with you finishing round 7. Do you have a 3rd video so that I can finish the blanket? It’s for a baby gift due in April and Im really stuck ! Please help !

    Thank you!

  80. I love this pattern and have used it many times. I usually finish it with a row of reverse single crochets but was wondering if anyone has any other ways that they have finished the blanket?

    Thanks so much!

    • I usually don’t do any edging on this one, but when I make other round ripples I like to finish with HDC all around.

  81. I found this pattern on allfreecrochet.com, fell in love with it and made one. On my first attempt I had some difficulty keeping track of my rows and it started to go wonky so I ripped it out back to row 10 and started again on row 11 using your chart. It was a Godsend and I finished it with no further problems. I have now started on my second one. Thanks for the pattern and especially for taking the time to add the chart.

  82. beautiful pattern is this an american pattern Ihave started it with american/british conversion but am wondering if thats right

  83. Hi Moma,

    I’ve been using your videos along with the pattern for the lacy round ripple blanket. It looks like round 10 isn’t shown in the videos. I understand I will end up with 12 5-dc shells and 12 v-stitches.

    Will I alternate the shell and v-stitches as in round 8? I believe I start out with the shell in the first chain 3 stitch, then it say skip the next chain 3 sp, skip the next chain 1 sp

    Does the above mentioned mean, I skip the next chain 3 and make the v-stitch in the 3rd chain 3 stitch? Could you please clarify those directions for round 10 for me please.

  84. Oh dear I am struggling with row 13. Are the patterns off centre and will it become apparent if I persevere? I am between cataract operations so perhaps not a good choice of pattern at this time but I will soldier on. Thank you.

    • What is confusing is that on the “loop” rounds, I have you slip stitch across to start with the second (middle) loop first and then work around and finish with the loop that is the first of the three loops in that set. I did that so that when you start the “shell” round, you begin that round at the second (middle) loop right where it needs to go. So the shells should always go in the middle of the three loops.

      I hope that helps.

  85. Thank you for this ripple pattern. I’m going to use it to make a round doily for a table using cotton thread. I wish I had found it earlier. I made one without a pattern and was pleased with it but like this one better. Will be nice to have two.

  86. Lovely pattern. I’ve done one in mint green and another in white. The white one was used in professional photos of baby it was made for as it was nicer than the photographers. Thankyou

  87. Hi. Thus blanket is awesome! Do u have a suggestion on how to make each starry part a different color?

    • I did some pondering on this and didn’t come up with a good way to do it all in one piece (as-you-go). Intarsia style color changes don’t work with in-the-round patterns. I think the best I could think of is to either make each panel separately, or if you wanted to venture into intarsia color changes, I think you would have to at least have one seam.

  88. Hello, I love this afghan. It’s beautiful. I am working on one for my mom and one for my sister. However, I am completely stumped on round 12. I’ve read all the other questions. I’ve watched your videos hoping that it would help me out but now luck. I just can’t figure out where to put the DC after skipping the DC. Am I to put in IN the v space?

    • On round eleven you made 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in each of the V-stitches of what are going to become the ripple panels. On round 12, you skip the first of the 2 dc and make a dc in the second one. Then make dc, ch 2, dc in the ch-2 space and then a dc in the first of that last 2 dc of that panel.

  89. Im confuse on rnd 7 not getting 12 V stitches and 12 3 chain loops help please

    • What did you get? There are some unedited videos for this blanket that do go past that round. I hope to get an edited version of it completed this summer.

  90. Fran Vollenhals

    I made this as a baby blanket in pink and white. It turned out beautifully. Thank you so much for the stunning pattern!

  91. Beautiful blanket, thank you for the pattern. Finally finished my other projects and now able to stat this one. Tutorials have been great. Have you any further video tutorials on this pattern past #3 .

    • I’m sorry I haven’t. I’d hoped I would have time during summer break to do more videos, but so far I haven’t had much time.

  92. I couldn’t find a round tablecloth pattern that I liked and understood, so I’m using 3-ply light fingering weight yarn on this pattern for my mom’s small round table. I think it will turn out just perfect!

  93. This blanket is gorgeous, and I am looking forward to it as a throw on my king sized bed. I am determined to finish this, even though I am a beginner. I am having trouble understanding round 3, will you please explain it better for me?

    • The first ch 1 is just to get up to the height of the next row. Make a sc in the ch-1 space of the prior round. Ch 3 and then make a sc in the next ch-1 space of the prior row. Do this all the way around the round.

  94. Thanks for the lovely. I consider myself an experienced level crocheter, but sometimes it is the simple that stumps me. Wouldnt it end in even number rows? I am looking ahead and see round 47??? Thanks

    • That’s just where I arbitrarily ended the chart. The pattern doesn’t have a set size. But my example, and I think most of the blankets I’ve seen made with this pattern, do end on an odd round. The odd round will have the ch-3 loops which give the lace panel a finished look.

  95. I am having trouble on round 5 I have all 12 shells with the 3 dc but when I am making the chain 3 all around to get 24 ch3 SP I am only getting 15. Is there an error? I have done it over and over. And I’m stuck.

    • Each of the 12 shells would have two Ch-1 spaces for a total of 24 ch-1 spaces around. So when making the ch-3’s, if you make the sc at the end of each ch-3 in a ch-1 space that should work out to 24 ch-3’s. Check to make sure there is a ch-3 over each shell and also between each shell, which also means there should be 2 sc’s in each shell.

  96. I used this pattern to make a throw to cover the back of a very ugly couch and it turned out beautiful. My kids (ages 5, 4, and 3) are now demanding me to make them each one in their favorite colors.

  97. I love the pattern hence request to send a chart or diagram of the pattern.

  98. hi
    would this pattern be suitable to do as bi-colour where the lace part is one colour and the panels another? I would love to try this pattern but I have never done any lace work except for in knitting.
    Any ideas would be extremely appreciated.

    • It would be tricky to do. I think you’d have to “carry” the currently unused color through the portion made in the other color by crocheting over it. Panel and intarsia techniques don’t work in-the-round because they rely on reversing the work for back rows.

  99. I loved the pattern ..worked on it till I got to row 11 ….all of a a sudden my screen changed ..I tried to get back to the next row couldn’t find pattern tried every way I couldn’t find patten …do you believe in miracles. This morning I put on I pad and YES YES YES THE PATTERN APPEARS thank you for sharing this beautiful pattetn…I know you could have charged for it but I think your great for posting it so people on a fixed budget can make something beautiful

  100. Love this pattern! It works up beautifully! Thank you.

  101. Could you reprint the instructions of the lacy ripple afghan with a white background; as it is very hard to see it

    • There is a printer icon at the top of the pattern that you can press to create a clean copy on a white background without comments. It will let you print or create a PDF of the pattern.

  102. Can someone clarify if I misinterpreted row 17. It says to skip 2 cd before and after. When I do that my count is off. I have 10 instead of 12 as the chart states.

    • One of the dc you are skipping in the last dc of the shell, so you are only skipping one dc on either side of the panel section.

  103. Hello,
    First all I would like to thankyou for the free pattern. It is beautiful!
    I’ve just started the blanket and am using an Australian 8ply yarn with a 4mm needle. I’m thinking that I’m going to make this blanket large.
    I’m wondering how many dc should be in the point when I go past round 47 and how many on either side of the point? I’ve tried to work it out and can’t at the moment (i’m hoping that I may work it out as I go,up to row 19 at the moment).

    Thankyou :-)

  104. Beautiful pattern. I recieved several skeins of Simply soft from a friend and this is what I used it on. I’m very very pleased with it! Thank you for the pattern. I put it on my Intagram too and was going to tag you there but couldn’t find you. Maybe in the future you’ll get one. I love showing what I make there. Thanks again!

  105. I love this! I am going to attempt to make this with crochet thread and make a table cloth. I have beautiful variegated blue/white thread so we will see! thank you

  106. By far the most detailed step by step pattern I’ve ever used! I absolutely adore this patternew and had zero hangups creating a beautiful afghan. Thank you so much for this!

    • Can you help me? I cant get past row five without ruffles.
      .

      • As long as you are getting the correct stitch counts at the end of each round it will work out. Once you add more rounds, the later rounds will stretch out the chain loops of the inner rounds to relax that rippling effect.

  107. Loved this pattern!!!!!!!!!!!! I made it for my granddaughter for her 1st birthday. I love that it will be easy to add on to so I can make bigger as she grows older

    Thank you for this free design..I found after I got past row 11 it got so much easier..now on row 20… Again Thank You

  109. Thank you for your beautiful pattern. I would love to see this pattern in a rectangular blanket. I think I know how to get there, but I’m not certain. I will be sure to try it both ways.

  110. Mama plz help I love this blanket I’m on row 11 I can’t read a pattern do all my work by eye when are you doing another video for all us silly ppl who love to crotchet but can’t read a pattern also I’m an Aussie and all our stitches are called different but watching the video I was picking it up but then I buggered it up somehow an I’m not sure where

  111. I can’t wait to do this my friend is due to have her baby just after Christmas and this will make an awesome shawl thank you for a beautiful design

  112. I am going to try to make this it s beautiful, thank you for sharing. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and a blessed Merry Christmas. Will be in touch again, thank you for sharing

  113. I would love to know the name of the color yarn used?

  114. Hello. I love your pattern but I was wondering if instead of a blanket etc. I could just make a small shwal out of this? Please let me know. It’s so different and I would love to try it. TIA

    • You can make it with any weight yarn and as large or small as you like. If you wanting to make a different shape, such as a semi-circle, that is a problem because it’s designed to be made in-the-round and not be turned back and forth like most crochet.

  115. I am having a hard time at row 5. It says to( sc, ch3 in space.) There are way more than 24 spaces. I end up with ruffles. I have started over from beginning twice now and changed my hook size. What is considered the ch space?
    Rnd 4: Sl st in ch-3 sp, ch 4 (counts as dc and ch), (dc, ch, dc) in same ch-3 sp, (dc, ch, dc, ch, dc) in each ch-3 sp around (12 3-dc shells). Join with sl st in third ch.
    Rnd 5: Ch 1, sc in ch sp, ch 3, (sc in next ch sp, ch 3) around (24 ch-3 loops). Join with sl st in first sc.

    • Chain spaces are holes created when sc or dc are separated by some number of chains. Working into a chain space is forming stitches over these chains rather than in loops like working in a specific chain stitch.

  116. I don’t do very well with ripple patterns, but this one looked so pretty, I thought I would try it. Thank you for the pattern, it was easy to follow. I decided to try it in tans and browns. Not done yet, but I only started it yesterday, so I am only one day into it, but I am on round 24.

  117. I’m taking a break and decided to read some of the comments. I used to be a crochet editor for Annie’s Attic (years ago), so I’m a little picky about the patterns I try. Love this twist on the mundane ripple pattern and I’m making it with Caron Simply Soft and I hook as a blanket. Think I may attempt a lacy edging to match the center. Thanks so much for sharing.

    In response to Zoe (March 6, 2017) who asked about making this into a shawl. Using a heavier crochet thread or light weight sport or sock yarn and folding it half would make a lovely shawl.

  118. WOW, I am a internet taught crochet learner. (Beginner)
    I LOVE this blanket. I started this for my DIL and Son who were about to have our 5th Grandbaby. Two days into this blanket (I only crochet a couple hours in the evening) We lost the baby at 7 1/2 months. I decided to finish this as a memory blanket in her colors. Purple, gray and gold. I decided the gold would be her name on the bottom purple rows. It isn’t quite done, but close and so far looks great. Thank you for this and all the comments as there was additional help there for me.

  119. I would love a video tutorial for this!

  120. Thank you so much for the pattern. It is so hard to get circular patterns for baby rugs.
    Cheers Lillyann

  121. I have been looking for a pattern like this to use for a round table cloth using Peaches and Cream Cotton.

    • The size measurements / yarn requirements will be different than what I give in the chart, but this will definitely work with peaches and cream and you can make it whatever size you want.

  122. Hello, I just began to crochet for the first time and I have spent so much money on yarn and needles haha but I have a simple question. What exactly is a slip stitch and what does it look like? I know, a stupid question, but it keeps saying put in in the st and I have no idea where it is. I’m only on the first row.

    Thank you!

  123. Wonderful blanket. Tutorial very helpful . Shell stitch was confusing so tutorial made it clear. Need to correct written instructions or update so people see the tutorial. Keep doing tutorials. It felt like you were sitting next to me explaining the stitches.

  124. Thanks so much for this great pattern. The chart is really helpful, so I don’t have to keep reading the text. Making this for a baby’s christening and it’s turned out beautifully.

  125. I adore this pattern. Once I get past round 11 it’s smoooooth sailing! I’ve made several of these in the new Lion Brand Mandala yarns, and it is simply perfection! Thank you for the chart with counts per round. I’ve sort of extrapolated more rounds for myself, hopefully my counts will work! I’m going for that king size afghan!

  126. Oh, and I have to add, after working a “regular” round ripple, which I found mind-numbingly dull and I had to MAKE myself continue it, this is so much more interesting! I just need to refer to the counts at the beginning of each round, and then once I know whether it’s 2 or 4 in the V, I’m good to go. The repetitiveness of a regular round ripple is so much worse. I have to count every single side to make sure I’ve got the right counts. With this pattern, as long as I’m consistent and follow the # of stitches in the point, I never get bored.

  127. Thank you for all your beautiful patterns.
    You are the Ripple Queen! smiles

  128. This is the exact pattern I have been looking for to make the body blanket for a baby toy. Im knew to crocheting and I already have the bunny head made. Could you please tell me how to decrease your pattern enough to make may baby bunny blanket. Upon research some people say it should not be too bulky. If you could help I would sure appreciate it.

    Thank you.
    Susan

    • The nice thing about an in-the-round blanket is that you can make it any size you want. Just make rounds until you are satisfied with the size and stop. If you want it to be thinner you can use a lighter yarn and smaller hook.

  129. Haven’t started it yet – but looks easy to follow and detailed too. Thank You for giving me the opportunity to try something that covers so many different choices in size and colour. Each one will be so uniquely different despite everyone using the same pattern. Thanks again.

  130. I dislike using the word hate, but I hate ripples. This is one that I think I can make. It’s absolutely gorgeous and interesting. You are so wonderful to share your designs, and your patience in teaching us how to properly create this masterpiece.
