I first looked on Google for a free version, and found lots of pages with instructions, but none of them worked right for me. This one little image was detailed enough to see what was round ripple afghan on, so I followed it! I don’t know whose photo this was, but THANKS to whoever made it! But I did alter the pattern a bit, to keep it from curling.
The photo shows an increase every other round. I changed it to add more increases. Each round that has dcs in a multiple of three, gets only one round instead of two. The other rounds get two each. At least it worked for me and my very own Round Ripple is done! They are right, it gets really boring those last few rounds! But once it’s done, it’s so pretty, and it’s exciting to think about making another.
Here’s how to add the extra points. This wasn’t my idea either, but I drew the diagram for it, so here you go. This is a smaller version, I mean it doesn’t show as many stitches as you really have. When you decide to add points, count the number of stitches you have, and figure out which stitch is the middle. Then follow this pattern using as many rows as you need until the hills and valleys have even numbers of stitches again.
Dishcloths Then I made a ton of ripple dishrags! The coolest ones are the ones made from the leftover bits from the others! Increasing every other round was enough, for these. Ch 3, make 13 DC in loop, join.
DC in base of starting Ch 3, Ch 2, join. Round 3: Sl St in first V-stitch space, chain 3, DC-Ch2-2DC in same space. Rounds 7-16: Repeat round 6 ten more times. Ch 3, 9 DC in loop, join.
Round 2: Ch 3, DC in same st. DC in next st, 2DC in next st. 1 DC in each st around, join. Round 11: Ch 1, SC in each stitch around, join. Finishing: Weave narrow ribbon or baby elastic through 2nd from last row to hold them on baby’s wrists. This entry was posted in Knitting and tagged baby, crafts, crochet, hat. This hat is so cute, I just printed it out.
Wow, the cap look adorable, and adapted from my Round Ripple Afghan ? I can pair your cap with the afghan as a set ! We offered the Ripple Hat for baby, but some are asking for the little mittens pattern. Will you point us to the link for the pattern. Thank you for the hat pattern. Lyn is a very good friend of mine and is a moderator in our Angels4Preemies group. I’d love to know the brand of yarn and colorway to make this hat.
