The Ripple Stitch is the perfect stitch to use multiple colors of for a blanket! After the starting row, it’s basically a 1 row repeat! How easy is that!
I love these colors that I have chose for this blanket! It reminds me of Springtime! Such fun and bright colors.
For anyone wondering, this yarn is ‘I Love This Yarn‘ in Tropical Pink, White & Keylime.
There are many different ways that I’ve seen this stitch done and this is my favorite way that I’ve found to do the ripple stitch.
I also designed a baby lovey with this stitch! Find this pattern HERE

How to Crochet the Ripple Stitch –
This stitch can be started by chaining any Multiple of 12 + 3
For this sample that I will be doing, I chained 39
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook (the 3 chain st that we just skipped will count as a st) dc in 3 ch st, (dc2tog) twice, * dc in 3 st, 2 dc in next 2 ch st, dc in 3 ch st, (dc2tog) twice* repeat * to * until you reach the last 4 st, dc in 3 st, 2 dc in very last st
This is what your 1st row should look like –
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as a st), t, dc in 1st st, dc in 3 st, (dc2tog) twice, * dc in 3 st, 2 dc in next 2 st, dc in 3 st, (dc2tog) twice* repeat * to * until you reach the last 4 st, dc in 3 st, 2 dc in very last st
*NOTE – remember that the ch 3 from the previous row counts as a stitch. So, your very last 2 stitches will be worked into it.
This is what row 2 should look like –
Continue repeating row 2 for as many rows as you’d like.
And, that’s all there is to crocheting the Ripple Stitch! It’s really that easy! You can experiment and try different color combinations that you like. I usually switch colors every 2 rows, but you can switch as often or not as you’d like.
