My Ripple Dishcloth from a pattern by Claudia
Lately, I've been seeing the crochet ripple design everywhere I look. My friend Lori F. is working on a beautiful ripple baby blanket in very fancy cotton yarn...bright colors, photo below.
Lori's Rainbow Ripple Baby Blankie
Since seeing Lori's blankie in progress, I've been hankerin' to crochet some ripples too! There's just something about this design that is so mezmerizing! Maybe the ripples remind me of the sea...it's summer...the beach beckons.
I've been looking through a few of my vintage crochet books. The ripple was queen of crochet in the 70's!

I've been seeing all sorts of gorgeous modern takes on the ripple design on Ravelry too:
