The Extended Ripple is a lacy ripple pattern that adds a fancy look to the classic ripple crochet pattern. This is really more of a stitch pattern; however, there are several finished project photos with details to help you with ideas. This elegant pattern can be used with medium to heavy weight yarns to make an afghan or warm item, while lighter weight yarns will create a nice shawl or wrap for a night out.
This pattern can be used with just about any size yarn and the coordinating hook. I do not recommend novelty yarns, as the textures of the yarn can make the stitches difficult or just take away from the look of the stitch pattern.

There is a video tutorial at the end of this pattern. There is also a chart at the very end of this post.
Extended Ripple Supplies
Whatever size you want to make!
Pretty much any size “regular” yarn. Not recommended for novelty yarns
Use a hook a few sizes longer than your yarn recommends. This stitch looks best when it is worked loosely.
Not important! Though you may want to make a 2 repeat swatch that is a few rows tall to determine how many repeats you need for your own finished item. (For example, if your swatch measures 10 inches, you know each repeat is 5 inches. If you are making a baby blanket and want it to be about 36 inches, you will ch enough for 7 repeats (7rep * 5 inches = 35 inches) in order to get the size you want.)
Stitches and Skills used
sc2tog ~ insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st (2 loops on hook), insert hook into next st, yo, pull through st (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all loops.
Extended Ripple Pattern
Ch a multiple of 16 plus 1
Row 1: 2sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of next 5 sts, sc2tog, sc2tog, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2sc in next st, * 2sc in next st, sc in each of next 5 sts, sc2tog, sc2tog, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2sc in next st, rep from * until end of row is reached, sc once more in last st (there will be 3 sc in the last st of this row).
Now here are some pictures to help you with Row 1:
Row 2 (right side): Turn, ch 4, tc in same st, (2 tc in next st) 2 times, (sk 1, tc in next st), 5 times, sk 1, (2 tr in next st) 2 times, * 3 tr in next st, (2 tr in next st) 2 times, sk 1, (tr in next st, sk 1) 5 times, (2 tr in next st) 2 times, rep from * until on st is left, 2 tr in last st.
Here are some pictures to help you with Row 2:
Row 3 (work entire row in front loops only): Change color. Ch1, 2sc in first st, sc in each of next 5 sts, sc2tog, sc2tog, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2sc in next st, * 2sc in next st, sc in each of next 5 sts, sc2tog, sc2tog, sc in each of next 5 sts, 2sc in next st, rep from * until end of row is reached, sc once more through both loops of last st (there will be 3 sc in the last st of this row).
And pictures for row 3:
Repeat rows 2 & 3: Until desired length is reached. End with row 3.
When changing color, do not finish off last st of your row, make the st all the way to the last yo/pull through and stop. Change color and make the final yo/pull through with the new color, then start the next row. This will make your color change look more finished.
I have made a video tutorial, however, my current camera doesn’t seem to take very good quality videos. So…it isn’t the clearest to look out. The color gets better about 2 minutes in, but it just isn’t as clean as I would like. Hopefully I will be able to buy a new digital camera soon and will make a new video at that point. For now, here is what I have:

Please note: there is no symbol for sc in front loop only in my chart program, but the top row is worked in the front loops only, even though I could not show that in the chart. After working the shown rows, keep repeating the last two until your work is as tall as you want.
