A New Sort of Ripple – #21 – Sweet Cherry Sundae

After crocheting eighty of the same kind of ripple since January 2011, I finally decided I was ready to try a different pattern!

I’ve wanted to make a ripple with alternating large and small points for a long time and I thought that I could probably figure out how to make one about the same size as my old ripples. They normally have six peaks with ten double-crochet stitches in each uphill or downhill run. Instead, this one has nine peaks; five large peaks with nine double-crochet stitches on each side and four smaller ones with four stitches per side.

I love the way the stripes seem to wriggle across the blanket! It came out about thirty-five inches wide like my old ripples, as I hoped it would.

I’m considering Wriggly Ripple as its name. What do you think??

It’s quite a change from the ripples I’m used to making.

In all the excitement I almost forgot… I crocheted one row of white, then two rows of Red Heart Super Saver Light Raspberry and three of RHSS Burgundy to make Sweet Cherry Sundae.

Do you want to make a Wriggly Ripple too? Shall I take the time to write out and test the pattern?

    What a wiggly wave of a ripple !! You made a very creative/visual name for your ripple! Its a nice pattern. I love how the first & last row look with the “peaks” of the waves. You must write it up for yourself and to share with your fans/friends ๐Ÿ™‚ Once again your creativity gives us a two scooper today! A beautiful pattern & a yummy colorful afghan too!!….Kathy
