When you have a beautifully textured stitch pattern, sometimes you don't need to use more than one color, and the Elegant Ripples Crochet Throw proves that. This easy crochet pattern uses a crochet ripple stitch and some post stitches for added texture to create a crochet throw that shines in all one color. Start working this design and you'll be amazed by how quickly you work through the pattern to create your finished ripple throw. 

Notes:
1. Throw is made in a ripple pattern which consists of a series of 3-stitch "peaks" and 2-skipped-stitch "valleys", with 12 dc worked between peaks and valleys. You may need to work several rows before the ripple is clearly visible.
2. To lengthen the throw, repeat Rows 2–25. Lengthening the throw may require the purchase of additional yarn.
