Double Crochet Ripple Stitch Afghan with Video

This Crochet Ripple Afghan blanket was easy and fun to make. This crochet pattern looks so nice on my couch or just to cuddle up with. I created a single crochet afghan tutorial a few years ago and I had so many ask how to create an afghan with double crochet so I decided to create this pattern. 
If you tell others about my work, please only link back to my blog, but don't copy my patterns to your site. Also you can sell anything you make from my patterns, but don't sell the free pattern. Thank you!
dc=double crochet


2 balls of each yarn color, medium worsted impeccable yarn, blue, pink, and white. 

H hook
Gauge: 4 rows measure about 4 inches with a h hook

About 70 by 68 inches when finished
About 2 balls of each color for this size of afghan. To Create a Smaller afghan use these chain counts to make your afghan smaller: 

Chain 126
Chain 168
Chain 189
Chain 252 

In the Video I give smaller chain numbers to show how to make this afghan smaller! 

How to Double Crochet a Ripple Afghan Video:

Chain 252, H hook
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from the hook. 1 dc in each of the next 8 ch, * 3 dc in next ch, 1 dc in each of next 9 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 dc in each of next 9 ch, repeat from * to last 10 ch, work 3 dc in next ch, 1 dc in each of next 9 ch, ch 1, turn.

Row 2. Skip 1 dc, 1 dc in back loop of each of next 9 dc, *3 dc in back loop of next dc, 1 dc in back loop of each of next 9 dc, skip 2 dc, 1 dc in back loop of each of next 9 dc, repeat from *across, end 3 dc in back loop of next dc, 1 dc in back loop of each of next 9 dc, leaving last stitch unworked, ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 two more times with one color of yarn, then you can switch to a new color and Repeat for 4 more rows, then change to a new color and Repeat for 4 more rows if you would like 3 colors in your afghan, or you could continue on with more rows on the same color, depends on how you prefer your afghan. 

I did 6 sets of 4 rows of of each color which is 4 inches for each 4 rows of each color. So the dimensions 12 inches x 6 sets = 68 inches or you can do less. In my video I gave different numbers to make this afghan smaller too.

Why do you leave the last stitch undone?

amyscrochetpatterns said...

This is what the pattern ask for, once its done it looks pretty and with a straight edge.

Unknown said...

In my opinion leaving that last stitch unworked is wrong. Instead I used a DC turn ch 1. Just sayin' Nancy F.

Unknown said...

Apologies but I do not see the print friendly
I may just not be seeing it
Could you please tell me what it is under?
Thank you so much
Have been looking for this pattern for months 😄😃

Why are you only chaining one? Don’t you usually chain 3 for a double crochet? I’m a beginner and just confused.

amyscrochetpatterns said...

no chain 3 for this, ch 1, dc in the next, follow the pattern above and watch the video to help

Thank you for sharing this pattern! I find the chain 1 very interesting and I’m eager to try it out. I just got the yarn I will be working on it tonight. Thank you for this new-to-me twist to experiment with!

Hello, Amy. After working 7 rows of your intriguing pattern, I love it! Finally, I’m able to crochet a ripple afghan with straight edges! For those in doubt, perhaps nicest a bit of time in crocheting a dishcloth using this method. You may be very pleasantly surprised! After 30+ years of crocheting, Amy’s pattern is my answer to the dc ripple afghan! Thank you, Amy!
PS. I’m currently taking a break from blogging, but when I return, I’ll be highlighting this pattern and linking your page. Great job!
