Lacy Ripple Blanket Crochet Pattern – The Stitches

 I rewrote the original stitch writeup from MyPicot to be purely in US terminology, so we can even begin to grasp how this stitch pattern is constructed.

Ripple + Lacy Flowers

This lacy ripple crochet stitch is made up of 2 things: a ripple and a lacy flower pattern. It is spread over 7 rows, as follows:

The ‘specialty stitch’:

To make the flower, it’s made up of clusters with 3tc, whereby you work the 3 incomplete treble in the same stitch, then, yo and pull through all loops. Voila. You got a petal.

The pattern in rows:

Chain a multiple of 41 plus 3 stitches.

ROW 1

Starting at the 3rd st from the hook, let’s break it down into section, so you can see the ‘cadence’ of the stitch pattern clearly:

  • sc in next 5 sts, 5 ch, 2 ch skip, sc in next 9 sts, 5 ch, 2 ch skip,
  • * 5 sc decrease, 5 ch, 2 ch skip, 9 sc in next chs, 5 ch, 2 ch skip, 4 sc in next chs, 3 sc in the same ch, 4 sc in next chs,
  • 5 ch, 2 ch skip, 9 sc in next chs, 5 ch, 2 ch skip;
  • rep from*,
  • 5 sc decrease, 5 ch, 2 ch skip, 9 sc in next chs, 5 ch, 2 ch skip, 4 sc in next chs, 2 sc in the last ch, turn.
