When working with free crochet afghan patterns you may come across a ripple stitch pattern. Michael Sellick says it's visually stunning as one side of your work will have a rippling effect. It’s very much like a sand bar at a beach or even ripples on top of the water. Rippling causes material to compact upon itself and can use more yarn than normal. But you will not experience any holes in your work to keep you nice and warm on a winter’s night.

Pros & Cons

  • Uses more yarn than normal.
  • The sides and bottoms can roll up unto itself if the design isn’t large enough. It’s because the ripple is on on one side of the material.
  • Really super amazing to look at and many have successful done it with very happy results.


This video will demonstrate the ripple stitch.
