Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Ch ~ chain
  • dc ~ double crochet
  • dc2tog ~ double crochet 2 together (explained)
  • cl ~ cluster (explained)

Pattern Description:

This ripple pattern puts a new twist on a classic afghan stitch pattern. Faded ripple is a great stitch to use with stripes, as it give a pretty detail to color changes. It can be used with just about any size yarn and the coordinating hook. I do not recommend novelty yarns, as the textures of the yarn can make the stitches difficult or just take away from the look of the stitch pattern.

Sizes:
Whatever size you want to make!

Yarn:
Pretty much any size "regular" yarn. Not recommended for novelty yarns

Hook:
Whichever size coordinates with your yarn.

Gauge:
Not important! Though you may want to make a 2 repeat swatch that is a few rows tall to determine how many repeats you need for your own finished item. (For example, if your swatch measures 10 inches, you know each repeat is 5 inches. If you are making a baby blanket and want it to be about 36 inches, you will ch enough for 7 repeats (7rep * 5 inches = 35 inches) in order to get the size you want.)
