I posted this on the Show and Tell and the pattern was requested. It is just a basic ripple (which means even though I wrote it, it may not be very original.) I used an 10-mm N hook and two strands of off white Super Saver yarn. I made it in just a couple days, for a quickie wedding gift.

N-Hook Ripple Afghan



Finished Size: Approximately 46" x 66"

MATERIALS

Worsted Weight Yarn (4-ply) approximately 61 ounces
Crochet hook, size N (10.00 mm)

Note: Entire afghan is worked holding two strands of yarn together.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Chain 160 loosely

Row 1 Single crochet (sc) in second chain (ch) from hook and in next 9 chs, 3 sc in next ch (This makes the mountain). Sc in next 10 chs. * Skip next 2 ch (This makes the valley), sc in next 10 chs, 3 sc in next chain, sc in next 10 chs. Repeat from * across to end. 161 sc.

Row 2-End Chain 1, turn. Working in back loops only, pull up a loop in the first two sc, yarn over (YO) and draw through all 3 loops on hook (this turns two sc into one sc). Sc in next 9 sc, 3 sc in next sc. * Sc in next 10 sc, skip next 2 sc, sc in next 10 sc, 3 sc in next sc. Repeat from * across to last segment. Sc in 9 sc, pull up a loop in last 2 sc, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook. 161 sc.

When Afghan is length wanted, finish off. Weave in all ends.

It's actually called a Cheveron and no it's not original. I've got several of these patterns from different booklets and leaflets that call for this. It's been around for a long time. Very nice tho.

I also saw this under the show and tell, but I am iffy about asking people for patterns as it is their work and I figure if they want to share it they will. But I was so excited when I saw that you posted this pattern, it is such a nice afghan and it's greatly appriciated (obviously not only by me!)

Thanks again!

I think your version of this pattern is awesome! I am making it with 6 rows each of shades of green. I love how fast it is working up. Thanks!:cheer

I have a question concerning this pattern. In row 2 it says in back loops only, is that for the whole row, or just when turning the 2sc into 1sc? I don't want to go on with the row until I know if I'm working in just back loops for all the sc in the row or the whole stitch, figured someone would be able to help me out :)

It is for the entire afghan. When you only crochet in the back loops, it creates a lovely ribbing texture and added thickness and stretchiness. You will love the texture.

Thanks a lot! I am now on about my 9th row :hook , I AM loving the texture. I use Caron Simply Soft for pretty much everything that I crochet and it is just so soft and light/fluffy.:c9 I can't wait until it's done, I'm alternating black and pink, I think it'll be cute I'll keep you updated, and hopefully for christmas I'll get that digital camera I hoped for :photo Thanks again!

It's beautiful, I've made more ripples than I can count, but never with 2 threads, an interesting idea. Bet that did make it go really fast. The texture too seems to show up more in your picture with the two strands of yarn. Nice work!
