Crochet Neat Ripple

Look at all those horny ripples, aren’t they glorious?? For those who love to crochet this pattern, it is relatively simple, rhythmic and soft, but playing with colors in this way is also energizing, exciting and a lot of fun. This pattern has something enchanting and mesmerizing in the way the ripple effect makes colors sing and dance side by side, a pattern in which you can feel free to use your imagination!! Surely you will and will fall in love !! At first, this pure crochet cascade pattern won’t be so easy thanks to the author by Lucy at Attic 24 for the tutorial explained and the amazing design, but it’s important to stay calm and trust your potential. But often crochet patterns look and sound very complex, more so than they really are. With this Crochet Neat Ripple tutorial, it will be easy for beginners to understand and eliminate certain imperfections.

This pattern, with these colors (image below), brings to mind “waves”, but after all, do you know what waves are? Waves are disturbances that propagate through space without transporting matter, only energy. The element that causes a wave is called the source, for example, a stone thrown into the waters of a river will generate circular waves. Examples of waves are: sea waves, radio waves, sound, light, x-rays, microwaves, and others. The part of physics that studies waves and their characteristics is called undulatory. Types of Waves – Regarding their nature, there are two types of waves:

  • Mechanical Waves: for propagation to occur, mechanical waves need a material medium, for example, sound waves and waves in a rope.
  • Electromagnetic Waves: In this case no material medium is required for the wave to propagate, e.g. radio waves and light.

Wave Classification – According to the direction in which the waves propagate, they are classified as:

  • Unidimensional waves: waves that propagate in one direction.
    Example: waves in a rope.
  • Two-dimensional waves: waves propagating in two directions.
    Example: waves propagating on the surface of a lake.
  • Three-dimensional waves: waves propagating in all possible directions.
    Example: sound waves.
    Waves can also be classified according to the direction of vibration:
  • Longitudinal Waves: the vibration of the source is parallel to the displacement of the wave. – Example: sound waves
  • Longitudinal Wave: Transverse waves: the vibration is perpendicular to the wave propagation. – Example: wave on a rope.

Wave Characteristics – To characterize waves we use the following magnitudes:

  • Amplitude: corresponds to the height of the wave, marked by the distance between the equilibrium (rest) point of the wave to the crest. Note that the “crest” indicates the maximum point of the wave, while the “valley” represents the minimum point.
  • Wavelength: represented by the Greek letter lambda (λ), is the distance between two valleys or two successive crests.
  • Velocity: represented by the letter (v), the speed of a wave depends on the medium in which it is propagating. Thus, when a wave changes its medium of propagation, its velocity can change.
  • Frequency: represented by the letter (f), in the international system frequency is measured in hertz (Hz) and corresponds to the number of oscillations of the wave in a given time interval. The frequency of a wave does not depend on the medium of propagation, only on the frequency of the source that produced the wave.
  • Period: represented by the letter (T), the period corresponds to the time of a wavelength. In the international system, the unit of measurement of period is seconds (s).

To get started, you need to crochet Neat Ripple your foundation chain. It must be in multiples of 14, plus an additional 3 added to turn. I strongly advise you before starting any ripply project to make a small ripple sample so that you have confidence in the pattern. Make a chain of 31 (2×14 3) which will give you a good idea of ​​how it forms.


Once you are sure you have the right number of chains to start with (be careful when doing them!), Do a triple crochet Neat Ripple stitch (this is UK / US dc) on the fourth hook chain. Follow the needle in the picture above so you can see where to go… can you see the four chains?? You should place your hook under the two straps of the chain stitch, and just to clarify which triple crochet stitch is as follows:

Attach the hook to the point, attach the hook back to the point (3 turns on the hook). Roll over, roll over 2 turns (2 turns left on hook), roll over and over 2 remaining loops. Triple point, ok?


For beginners new to crochet, working the first row in a foundation chain may seem incredibly difficult at first, but DO NOT GIVE UP. Follow the picture above, needle shows where the next stitch will go … it helps if you twist the chain toward you a little, so you are looking to the side of it than the top.


You will be able to see both loops of the chain and see where your hook goes so that it slips under these two loops (pictured above).


Continuing, you should have just given 1 pa on the fourth hook chain. Now make 1tr in each of the next 4 chains, as pictured above, so there are 5 in total (plus chain 3).


Next you will be working at a default decrease point, known as tr2tog (two treble together). This is where you work 2 incomplete pa, joining them at 1 point at the end. So here is the point in simple English:

  • Attach the wire, insert the hook into the point, attach the wire to the hook (3 turns on the hook).
  • Thread the thread, draw through 2 turns (2 turns on hook, as pictured above)
  • Now attach the wire and insert the hook at the next point, attach the wire again, fasten it back (4 turns on the hook, as pictured above)
  • Thread the thread and pull through 2 turns (3 turns remaining on hook as pictured above)
  • More yarns and draw through all three loops s to end the stitch (figure above).
  • This whole thing is a tr2tog (two highs together
  • Now you need to do TWO of these tr2tog, so go ahead and do the same thing again over the next two points:
  • Thread yarn to next stitch, thread yarn back to stitch (3 turns on hook)
  • Thread the wire through 2 turns (2 turns on the hook)
  • Thread the thread to the next stitch, thread it back (4 turns on hook)
  • Thread the wire, draw 2 turns (3 turns on the hook) Thread the
    thread, pass all three turns.
  • Work 1tr on each of the next 4 chains (picture above)
  • You’ve worked with the valley, with 4tr making the sides and tr2tog making the bottom of the valley. Now it’s time to make the “mountain”…

…work 2tr on the next chain.

  • And again, work 2 more three on the next chain.
  • Do these four points form the top of the “mountain,” as you can see in the picture above, the way a V makes when two points are worked into one?
  • I think it really helps when working on a ripple pattern so you can recognize what the decrease and increase points are like. Because when you are working on this pattern, it is sometimes very useful to be able to look back over the line you just created and see how the pattern formed, check for errors, etc.
  • OK, after your two 2tr lots increase on the mountain, you need to crochet 1 tr in each of the next 4 chains. Then work a decrease of tr2tog and then another decrease of tr2tog (the goes again).
  • Then crochet 1 tr in each of the next 4 chains.
  • To a small diagram above, under the first line, so you can get an idea of ​​the pattern visually, to see how the ripples are formed.
  • LINE 2, same color.
  • Chain 3
  • Crochet the same stitch … Watch the needle for where to go.

Now follow this pattern, just as before:

  • Make a triple point on each of the next 4 points.
  • tr2tog (decrease)
  • tr2tog (decrease)

Make a triple point on each of the next 4 points.

  • 2tr at next point (increase)
  • 2tr at next point (increase)

Make a triple point on each of the next 4 points.

  • tr2tog (decrease)
  • tr2tog (decrease)

Make a triple point on each of the next 4 points.

  • If you started with 31 points, you should have reached the end of the line now, as in the picture above. Two more points to go …..
  • Now you need to do 2 trs at the top of chain 3 of the previous row. Look in the picture above the needle to know where to go.
  • This chain can usually be very tight, you may have to work hard to put the hook in that little hole…
  • There you can see the V of the last 2tr in that row on the left? Good! Now squeeze and turn work to add a new color.
  • Joining a new color is easy… just knot the two threads as close as possible to the dots. Insert your hook into the first stitch, thread the new color and pull it forward ready to begin.

All lines from now on will be the same. So here we go, ROW 3:

  • Chain 3, then make 1 pa at the same point as the picture above.

Now work the following:

  • 1tr in each of the next 4 pc
  • tr2tog
  • tr2tog
  • 1 pa in each of the next 4 pc
  • 2tr for the next ch
  • 2 tr for the next ch
  • 1tr in each of the next 4 pc
  • tr2tog
  • tr2tog
  • 1 pa in each of the next 4 pc

And that’s the end of this line, so turn around and get ready for ROW 4.
