  1. How do you crochet sharp chevrons and not wavy ripples when you crochet a blanket? (Chevron in the last pics, ripple in the first one) Is it how many stitches you add between increases and decreases, the increases or decreases themselves, or what? I like the sharp chevrons, not so much the ripples, because the chevrons seem more modern, while the ripples are more retro. Maybe it’s just me I'm new to ripple/chevron crocheting and wanted to crochet a blanket, but also make sure I do it right lol. So I wanted to make sure I get chevrons and not ripples.
  2. I've done simple ripple afghans in the past but wanted to make a Ripple Baby Afghan that I have from an old book of patterns, New Crochet Basics, 12 Designs for Beginners, by Leisure Arts.1989 The first 2 instructions are as follows: __________________________________________ With CC ch5, join with slip st to form a ring. Rnd 1: Ch3, (YO, insert hook in ring and pull up a loop) twice, YO and draw through all 5 loops on hook, ch 2, *(YO, insert hook in ring and pull up a loop) 3 times, YO and draw through all 7 loops on hook, ch 2; repeat from * 6 times more; join with slip st to first st: 8 ch-2 sps. __________________________________ I don't understand what I'm supposed to do after the bolded part. When it says insert hook in ring am I really not supposed to be inserting the hook through any of the loops? I tried to do that and it looked okay for the first time I did it but it says to do it twice. And the second time I ch 3 and inserted hook in ring, it didn't look right to me. And when it says to draw though all 5 loops on hook, does it mean the original 5 chs? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Judi
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can help me, my lapghan is a chevron stitch, 160 and 10 peaks, I do it in 7's and I am at the end of a row and it comes up short by one, I redo and start one chain over and it ends in 8 what am I doing wrong!
  4. Hey, all. I'm new to the forums. I found this 'cause I'm trying to find someplace that might be able to help me with reading a pattern I'm having a bit of trouble deciphering. I usually don't have issue with patterns but it's been so long since I used one and I've never done a ripple afghan before. I usually just do "straight" or granny square ones. Anyway, I've got this ripple afghan I'm going to make for my little girl's toddler bed for when it's time to move her from her crib. Just a little something special for her. But for the life of me I can't figure out what this pattern is asking me to do! Also, the pattern is written in US terminology, not the international if that makes any difference at all. So, first, I'm not sure how to create a gauge swatch on this one. That's the first issue. I can't figure out if my hook size is correct because of this. So I'm probably using the wrong hook to obtain my correct gauge. Next, in row one, at the beginning it says to dc in next ch, ch1, skip next ch twice, then dc, ch1 4 times in next chain. Do I skip a stitch before working 4 dc into the single space? I can't figure that out. And in row two (which is as far as I've ever gotten, I simply can't figure out what spaces it's telling me to work. So...basically, this entire pattern is completely hurting my head. I don't know why it just doesn't feel as clear as I think it could be. Or it's just been that long since I've seen a pattern that isn't just repetition row after row or round after round. So, thanks in advance for helping if you can. I know it's a lot to ask, I'd just really like to figure this pattern out instead of finding a different one.
  5. We have three gorgeous ripple throws! They are the subject of our 3 Colorful Ways post for April. LW4810 Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart Super Saver yarn LW5208 6-Color Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart Classic yarn LW5220 5-Color Radiating Ripple Throw in Red Heart With Love yarn
  6. My wife is starting her first project which is a blanket for our boys. It keeps rippling or curling. Can anyone tell us why this is happening?
  7. I finished this afghan this morning. It will be a Christmas gift for my brother. I used Windsor Ripple Throw pattern from the Red Heart website as a base but didn't follow the exact pattern. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Soft Navy, Royal, Light Periwinkle and Light Blue. The finished size is 71" x 52".
  8. This is kind of hard to explain in words, but I've attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying to make, so hopefully that will help. The project I'm working on is one of those blanket dolls where the "body" is a blanket but there's a stuffed animal or doll "head" on top (sorry, I don't know what they're actually called, but you can see my point in the sketch I've attached). I want the blanket portion to represent the doll's dress, so I'd love it to have a scalloped edge around the bottom/outer portion of the circle. However, all the patterns I've found online are for much smaller "scallops", as opposed to just 7 or 8 around the entirety of the blanket. Basically, what I'm trying to make is something similar to a round ripple-patterned blanket, but with the edges being rounded instead of pointed. I've been crocheting for years and know how to read patterns if anyone has one I could use, but I just haven't been able to find on online. Thanks for your help! Here's a very rough sketch of the final project. I'd like the "base" of the doll (i.e. the blanket portion you can see more clearly in the top view) to be about 10'' in diameter. Sorry I'm not the best artist, but hopefully this gets the point across:
  9. Hi I have a question. Is it possible to start a ripple pattern part way through a blanket? I want to make a blanket that looks like the sea with a beach. I want to crochet the beach straight but then I want to do the sea with a ripple pattern. I want to do the beach first as I am using Lionbrand homespun and that would make it easier to start as the chains are nearly impossible to see. Thanks
  10. Hi, My great aunt died years ago, but before that, she crocheted an afghan, gave it to a family member (who stretched/tore it up) and then sent it to me to repair I loved my aunt, so I'm mending it. What i've figured out so far, lol, yarn type/color, hook size I, how to reproduce her stitch tension, front v.s. reverse, whether she's worked a front or back hook, how she made her joins and have taught myself (thanks to great friends here) both how to put in a row of retaining "stitches" and how to replace a row of stitches in the middle of a piece---so that's something It's the particular form of ripple/chevron pattern she followed of which I'm unsure (and my aunt's been dead for at least a decade, so her patterns have been lost to time.) I've ripped stitches out, then stitched them back in. It appears to be just reg. single crochet (possibly she worked both bars of the loops/chains on one row, then just the back loops on another--since those looks are projected outward.) My eyes are going blurry reading/testing every similar pattern I can, so I'm begging for help Find below a few pics that might hopefully solve the pattern mystery... Thanks so much! b (if there were also a dog and goose emoticon, I'd be over the moon!)

    Ripple Afghan

    It took me about 16 months to finish this project, just in time for my daughter's birthday. It's big enough to cover a queen size bed. I used about 10 skeins of Hobby Lobby, I Love This Yarn, Over dyed. The afghan is all done in single crochet.
  12. I finished a small-ish round ripple for a donation to a NICU. I like the colorful rainbow appearance. I hope it makes someone happy.
  13. Here is my wavy ripple lapghan crochet pattern. This was designed to fit over a person's lap and down over their legs. I crocheted this blanket for the Warmth for Warriors to use for a person in a wheelchair at the VA hospitials.
  14. New pattern from Designs by KN: Ripple-Band Hat (coordinates with Ripple-Band Accessories pattern)
  15. Ripple-band Accessories Headband, wrist cuffs, scarf - new from Designs by KN
