    Hi Pip, I have been reading your blog for YEARS! And I love it. Thank you for all your tutorials, I learnt how to crochet thanks to you 🙂 Nearly finished a ripple blanket for my best friends little baby. Once again, Thank You!!

    O, thanks for posting this, Pip! I'll look forward to making a bit of ripplejoy in our home. x

    *drool with excitement*
    Thanks Pip!!!

  • Melisa September 7, 2011 at 8:44 PM

    This is beautiful, Pip! I am still learning to crotchet but perhaps this can be my first project…

    Thanks for providing such a detailed guide! Excited x x x

    Hello – how lovely to see this – I have a ripple blanket on my bed that I inherited from my grandmother. One of my special treasures and now I realise how much work she put in to make it! Nicky 🙂

  • Rie September 7, 2011 at 2:08 PM

    That is a beaut ripple & a great tut Pip! The ripple reminds me of licorice allsorts.. mmm yumm.
    Maybe I should start another project (& hopefully finish one)… maybe shades of orange. Ugh, too many choices of colours.
    BTW, the tut kinda scared me when I first saw it & no pics.. but then I saw the pics and actually read the tut thru & it's sooo not scary.. I've just gotta learn to read things properly!!!!

    Fantastic Pip! I've been interested in making a ripple blanket for quite some time – this is perfect!
    Thank you.

  • georgia September 7, 2011 at 10:22 AM

    Thanks for that pip! I am at work loading up new computers and it's taking a while I only wish I had some yarn and a hook and I could start it now!

  • Pip September 7, 2011 at 10:03 AM

    This is the URL, Georgia!

  • georgia September 7, 2011 at 9:57 AM

    Hi pip I would totally love to have a look at your brilliant tutorial but alas I am on my phone and it doesn't want to show up! Is there some way that someone can post the link so I can have a sneaky peak? I can't wait to have a go at the ripple!

  • Michelle September 7, 2011 at 9:27 AM

    Wahoo!!! thank you, I will be starting this tonight when I get home!!! I have been searching for a new crochet project and this is it!!! thank you thank you thank you

  • Pip September 7, 2011 at 9:16 AM

    Michelle! YES! Use Cotton! It will be lovely and soft! YES! x

  • Michelle September 7, 2011 at 9:14 AM

    Pip, I just had a question? Would it be possible to use cotton for the pattern? I have been buying and not using sugar and cream yarn and this looks like it could be perfect? would it work?

    thanks for your help, and crushing on this blanket!

  • Pip September 7, 2011 at 8:52 AM

    Ripples are totally where it's at!
    Once you 'get' the pattern, this is a total no-brainer! Even more fun than a granny stripe! Honest! Look at the waves!

  • ruth September 7, 2011 at 8:16 AM

    Thank you for a very inspiring project! I can't even crochet but this makes me want to learn! This will definitely be going on my very long must do list 🙂

    On my last blog post I had an image where I showed all my favourite colours of autumn in stripes, and someone in fact commented that they would make a lovely blanket!

    I'm seeing ripples 😉

  • angela September 6, 2011 at 7:56 PM

    LOVE. LOVE. LOVE! Thank you Pip! xxox

  • Lulu September 6, 2011 at 7:36 PM

    Thankyou, I love this tutorial. I have a blanket that my Aunt Edna crocheted for me many years ago just like this. I just might need to make one to keep it company, after I finish all of my patchwork first of course……

  • Rachel September 6, 2011 at 3:43 PM

    Ooops! I didn't mean to be rude in my previous post… Thanks for the tute, Pip!

  • Rachel September 6, 2011 at 3:34 PM

    Love it!! Should finish the FOUR blankets I have going at the moment before starting No. 5! Love the format of the tute, too!!

  • Cathg1g2 September 6, 2011 at 11:04 AM

    Thank you
    I love crochet and what an easy gorgeous (due to your tute) blankie to make.
    Yes, def a school hol project in pretty colours to show off the zig zag!

    This is so sweet of you! Thank you for sharing this awesome tutorial with us!

  • susanhal September 5, 2011 at 11:50 PM

    Loved your interview in this months " Mollie Makes" and thanks very much for the ripple pattern.
    You taught me to crochet last year with your tutorials and it's been an obsession ever since- I've lost track of all the blankets and cushions I've made for my house and others, I even taught someone else how to do it !
    I really like the big bobbly looking blanket shown in the magazine and on the bed in your last post, is it granny stitch done with chunky wool or actual bobble stitch ? i've just got into bobbles myself !
    Also will your journal be available here in England ?
    thanks again for all your lessons and patterns
    Best wishes for spring Susan xx

  • little love September 5, 2011 at 11:05 PM

    Oh wow! That blanket is gorgeous! I've just been using your granny square tutorial to learn how to crochet & I couldn't believe it, when I read your Ripple pattern I could actually understand what I needed to do! Thank you! You're awesome!

    PS My daughter Piper aka Pip came over to see what I was looking at & saw the blanket which she loved. I told her a woman named Pip made it & she got all excited that you both have the same name 🙂

  • Nic September 5, 2011 at 9:27 PM

    Thanks Pip,
    I will conquer the great mountain that is crochet. I will, I will!
    How many sleeps until book three?

  • birds and bobs September 5, 2011 at 7:04 PM

    Hi Pip! I've recently been using your granny square tutorials and they've been really helpful! (No one else in my family knows how to crochet so I'm trying to be the first!) I don't think I'll be this adventurous yet though…!
    Thanks a heap!

  • Jill September 5, 2011 at 6:23 PM

    A ripple blanket is on my to do list – as soon as I get to it I know that I will start with your tutorial!

  • Casey September 5, 2011 at 6:19 PM

    How exciting, I think I just found my new school holiday project. Your all kinds of awesome 🙂

  • LionessLady September 5, 2011 at 5:48 PM

    Thanks Pip! That's super generous of you. I love your tutorials – they make sense and are easy to follow! x

  • beebeeoko September 5, 2011 at 4:56 PM

    When I have more time I'm going to sit here with wool and learn how to do this. I've been wanting to learn for ages but it seems way beyond my skills, but I WILL LEARN!! Thank you!!! 🙂
