Ribbed Ripple / Turtle Beach is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
The gentle waves of this ripple are highlighted by the ribs at the edge of each stripe. The Ribbed Ripple stitch pattern works up into a beautiful blanket with a wave stripe repeat in any 2 (or more) colours, or make the Turtle Beach version with sand and sea colours, either as an afghan square, a playmat for aquatic toys, or a full blanket. Use the optional edging instructions to square off the rippled top and bottom edges, so you can e.g. use this as a square in a larger blanket, or turn it into the front of a cushion cover.
Yarn: worsted weight yarn
• approx 75m/80yds total for a 10"square
• approx 1300m/1400yds for a 3ft x 4ft blanket
Hook: H US/5mm crochet hook
Size: any size blanket/square of your choice, but the pattern includes specifics to make a 10"/25.5cm square and a 3ft x 4ft (36x48”, 91x122cm) blanket.
Please note: to complete a Turtle Beach blanket, you'll also need some turtles! The Baby Sea Turtle Collection pattern is for sale separately, from my shop.
You can also add starfish from my Starfish Collection pattern (again, sold separately).
And if you'd prefer a pattern with no calculations required, please see the Turtle Beach Blanket (Classic Blue Version and/or Teal Ombre Version) patterns - also sold separately - which include complete patterns for 8 different blanket sizes together with yardage requirements for each colour.
