The single crochet ripple pattern is a basic wave pattern that can be created simply with single crochet stitches and chains. It’s a great beginner-friendly stitch pattern that can be used to create beautiful crochet afghans or garments. In this video, Mister Domestic demonstrates how to works the single crochet ripple pattern.


Mister Domestic creates the stitch pattern as follows:

Ch a multiple of 11 plus 2.

Row 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook, *sc in next 4 ch, sk next 2 ch, sc in next 4 ch, 3 sc in next ch; rep from * to last 11 ch, sc in next 4 ch, sk next 2 ch, sc in next 4 ch, 2 sc in last ch, turn.

Row 2: Ch1, 2 sc first sc, *sc in next 4 sc, sk next 2 sc, sc in next 4 sc, 3 sc in next sc; rep from * to last 11 sc, sc in next 4 sc, sk next 2 sc, sc in next 4 sc, 2 sc in last sc, turn.

Rep Row 2 to desired length.

With this pattern, it’s amazingly easy to change colors, which Mister Domestic has done in his finished swatch. When completing the final stitch on a row, use the new yarn for the final yarn over, draw through two of the single crochet to attach the new yarn.


ch: chain

rep: repeat

sc: single crochet

sk: skip

    I'm still so confused because of the angle of the camera. How would you do a large blanket? Brand spanking new at crocheting.
