The ripple effect


Well, finally 'ripple' crochet that many other bloggers are working on has seduced me too! I bought a bamboo hook this morning on a whim and have just sat down with both American instructions and my Nana's Australian beginners crochet book, it is just like learning a new language but doubly confusing because they call the same stitch different things. Only after watching a short clip online of how the stitch it formed did I realise this!! Now I am rippling along fine and my speed and technique are improving as I ripple on. I am working my stitches into the back of the loop so I have a 'ridge' line which was a suggestion in one set of instructions. Any tips or advice from experienced ripplers will be most appreciated. Apologies for the really bad flash photo, but I just wanted you to see I have been able to learn something new all by myself!

Oh my golly ... everything old is new again. I remember doing ripple afghans back in the 70's.

I do "no ridge". I like the flat look.

Will your piece be a scarf?
