Lacy Ripple Crochet Stitch



I started working on this project a few months ago. I wanted to make a wide scarf, but somewhere alone the way I changed my mine about the color and the texture. So I'm going to unravel this crochet piece. But before I do so, I thought I should share the stitch pattern. It is a beautiful stitch, which can be used for a variety of crochet projects.

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 5, skip next 3 ch, sc in next ch* across. (24 loops)


Row 2: ch 4, turn; sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, *{sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5} three times, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc* across to last 2 ch-5 spaces; sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in last ch-5 space, ch 2, dc in last sc.

Row 4: ch 4, turn; sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space, *ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space* across to last sc, ch 2, dc in last sc.


Row 5: ch 1, turn; sc in 1st dc, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, *sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc* across, sc in space formed by turning ch-4.


Row 6: ch 2, turn; 2 dc in 1st sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space, *(2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-1 space* across, 3 dc in last sc.


Row 7: ch 1, turn; sc in 1st dc, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5, *sc in next ch-1 space, ch 5, sc in next ch-5 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) all in next sc, sc in next ch-5 space, ch 5* across, sc in 2nd ch of turning ch-2.

  2. Wow! I think the piece you are about to unravel is beautiful. Even if I changed my mind (which I do often), I don't think I could unravel that much beautiful work. It doesn't help any that I am very slow at crocheting and it would take me forever to crochet as much as you are about to unravel. Love your blog!

  9. Beautiful pattern! Would you be able to suggest how many chains to start with for a baby afghan in either weight category 4 or 2? Thanks in advance! Can't wait to make this. I've been looking for a pattern that combines solid ripples with lace ripples for a long time.

    1. Great idea, I think this stitch will work nicely for a baby blanket.
      Let's see, when I make blankets with category 4 yearn, I usually start somewhere around 120-140 chains. So for this stitch, which is a multiple of 16, I would probably start with ch 130 (16*8=128 plus 2).
      And for category 2 yarn, I would probably start with 162 (16*10=160 plus 2).

      Hope this helps :)
