Filet Diamond Ripple Afghan

FiletDiamondRipple600

The filet diamonds make this a lighter weight throw. The pattern creates a finished rippled edge on all sides as you go. Being a repeat of three rows, it is an easy pattern to learn. Make it in a solid color or with as many color changes as you like.

The example is made in bulky weight (Bulky-5, 12 ply) acrylic yarn.

Materials:
Bulky weight (Bulky-5, 12 ply) yarn – see chart above for amounts. This blanket can be made in almost any weight yarn. Use the size hook suggested on the yarn you use. The dimensions and yarn amounts in the chart only apply to the yarn weight and hook size given in this pattern.
Size K (6.5mm) crochet hook

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
sp = space

Special stitch:
dec: yo, insert hook into first stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook, skip 3 stitches, yo, insert hook into next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook, yo and draw through all 3 loops on hook. (Uses five stitches)

The beginning chain should be a multiple of 24 plus 15.

For these widths, start with this number of chains:
30.5″ = 135
36″ = 159
46.75″ = 207
57.75″ = 255
68.5″ = 303

There is a chart available for this pattern here.

Row 1: Skip first 3 ch (counts as first dc), dc in the 4th ch from hook, dc in each of the next 4 ch, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, dc in next 6 ch ** ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dec, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 6 ch, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, dc in each of next 6 ch. Repeat from ** across to end.

For the rest of the blanket, work all stitches in both loops.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), turn, skip first dc, dc in each of next 6 dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next 7 dc ** ch 1, skip 1 ch, dec, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in each of next 7 dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next 7 dc. Repeat from ** across to end.

Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), turn, skip first dc, dc in each of next 6 dc, ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in dc, ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next 6 dc ** dec, dc in each of next 6 dc, ch 1, sk ch-1, dc in dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next 6 dc. Repeat from ** across to end.

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, skip first dc, sl st in each of next 6 dc, ch 3 (counts as a dc), dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in ch-3 space, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc ** skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, skip dc, ch 1, dec, skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in ch-3 space, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc. Repeat from ** across to last 6 stitches. Do not complete any more stitches on row. You will leave 5 dc and turning chain unworked.

Repeat rows 2 through 4 until blanket is desired length. End with a row 3.

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 finish all but the very last pull through of the two loops of the last double crochet of a row. Cut yarn with a few inches of tail and join with new color next to stitch. Pull new color through last two loops. Weave in ends.

Edits:
5/13/18 – correction to Row 3.

  1. So excited to see this new pattern today, just when I was looking for a new project. Just wanted to comment though on Row 3. The first section before the ** ends with 6 DC, which makes sense. Then, at the end of the repeated section it says 7 dc. I’m finding that I need to do 6 dc there because if I do 7, I’m moving into the stitches for the decrease. However, at the end of the row, it is 7. Thanks again for this pattern! I love ripples, but really prefer ones like this that don’t just repeat the same row again and again. The variety keeps me interested.

    • Thanks for pointing out that error. I have now corrected it in the pattern. I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything in so long. I hope to start having more time to post more.

      • Can’t imagine why you haven’t enough time . . .

        Of course, I’m kidding. I’ve all the time in the world and do nothing most of the time.

        Just wanted to say: you’re doing fine – and I’m here whenever. Thank you for all you do and for all you share. You do a GREAT job and you are much appreciated.

  2. I would like to tell you how wonderful I think you and your crochet patterns are the best ever – on my top 10-List of favorite crocheters and designers! I love this new blanket and can’t wait to get started on it! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us! Happy Mother’s Day to you!!

  3. I’m going to give this a try–I too love ripples and I think this is a unique pattern.

  4. Per your: For the rest of the blanket, work all stitches in both loops.

    Where do you say at the beginning into single loop?

    After ch, does this pattern call for going through the back ‘purl’ or only 1/2 of the V st?

    • Row 1 is worked into the chain. Usually only one loop of the chain is used. Then before Row 2 I said for the blanket to be worked in both loops.

  5. I’m a little confused. I just finished the 4th row, but how do I increase to get the zigzag edging to work? Help!!

    • For the first three rows the row length was increasing on the ends. For row 4 you slip stitch across several stitches and then leave stitches at the end unworked. This shortens row 4. As you continue the pattern you will see where this creates the ripple look on the edges.

    Would really like TO GET your newsletter of your crochet patterns, either daily or weekly or however you send them out. Love love your patterns, sincerely
    Patricia

    • We haven’t set up a newsletter yet but I’m glad you enjoy the patterns. For now I have notifications on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

  7. How would I do this pattern if I wanted straight edges instead of the rippled edges?

    • You will need these special stitches.

      dc2tog – double crochet 2 stitches together (uses two stitches, decreases by one stitch) – [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times (3 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

      dc3tog – double crochet 3 stitches together (uses three stitches, decreases by two stitches) – [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 3 times (4 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

      Begin with one less chain than the pattern.

      Row 1: Skip first 2 ch (counts as first dc), dc2tog (using the 3rd and 4th ch from hook), dc in each of the next 3 ch, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, dc in next 6 ch * ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dec, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 6 ch, (dc, ch 3, dc) in next ch, dc in each of next 6 ch. Repeat from * across to end. On last repeat replace the last 3 dc with a dc3tog.

      For the rest of the blanket, work all stitches in both loops.

      Row 2: Ch 2, turn, skip first dc3tog, dc2tog (using 2nd and 3rd dc), dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next 7 dc * ch 1, skip 1 ch, dec, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in each of next 7 dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next 7 dc. Repeat from * across to end. On last repeat replace the last 5 dc with dc3tog using last 3 stitches.

      Row 3: Ch 2, turn, skip first dc3tog, dc2tog (using 2nd and 3rd dc), ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in dc, ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next 6 dc * dec, dc in each of next 6 dc, ch 1, sk ch-1, dc in dc, ch 1, (dc, ch 3, dc) in ch-3 sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, skip ch-1, dc in next 6 dc. Repeat from * across to end. On last repeat replace last 6 dc with dc3tog using last 3 stitches.

      Row 4: Ch 2, turn, skip first dc3tog, dc2tog dc (using ch-1 sp and dc), dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in ch-3 space, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc * skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, skip dc, ch 1, dec, skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc, skip dc, ch 1, dc in next dc dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in ch-3 space, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc. Repeat from * across to end. On last repeat replace last “dc in dc, dc in ch-1 sp, dc in dc” with dc3tog (using dc, ch-1 sp and dc).

      Repeat rows 2 through 4 until blanket is desired length. End with a row 3.
