"I was looking for the perfect “comfort crochet” project and I found it! This simple, beginner-friendly (or “mindless” movie watching) ripple pattern creates gentle waves. It uses just one stitch and no complicated decreases. Use six colors to create the gradient effect I have, or make it scrappy. A video tutorial is included at the end to walk you through the pattern and two options for changing colors. Skills Used Basic crochet stitches: chain, half double crochet Crocheting flat in rows Increasing, decreasing by skipping stitches Changing colors Skill Level Easy Finished Size Lap Throw: 34.5” (87.5 cm) wide x 48” (122 cm) long.

US Size I-9/5.5 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge. Yarn needle. Gauge 19 sts x 10 rows = 4” (10 cm) in pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project."

There's something with ripple designs that excites me no end. This Gentle Gradient Ripple Blanket is one. You have to see it up close to be able to enjoy the details of the pattern. I was looking at the design up close and I want to do this in when time allows. The color used is just perfect for those of you who love earth colors. As the author suggests you can do this in a more vibrant color or in any color that you fancy.
