Rippling Waves Afghan Square Pattern

This is my pattern for the extra square that I’ve designed for my “Last Dance on the Beach CAL” blanket (I know….that’s sooo 2016 darling!).  Because I wanted to make it a bit larger, I’ve done some extra squares.  This is my Rippling Waves Square instructions, just in case you want to give it a go yourself!

I used a 4.5mm hook to get a square approximately 19cm x 19cm

UK terms used:

  • Chain (Ch)
  • Chain Space (ch-sp)
  • Double Crochet (dc)
  • Treble Crochet (tc)
  • Front-Post Treble Crochet (Fptc)

Note, as usual, turn at the end of each row (except for the DC border as described below)

Chain 32

Row 1: 1dc in second chain from the hook and in each chain to the end of the row.   [31 stitches]

Row 2: Ch2 (doesn’t count as a stitch), skip the first stitch (under the turning chain) then *skip next 2 stitches, 1tr in next stitch, ch1, 1tr back in first of 2 stitches just skipped.  Repeat from * to last stitch, 1tr in last stitch.

Row 3: Ch1, 1dc in every stitch and ch-sp, note, don’t ending with 1dc in the turning chain from row below [Note: its REALLY easy to lose a stitch in this row, make sure you still have 31 stitches by the end]

Row 4: Ch2 (doesn’t count as stitch), skip first dc (under chain) then *skip next 2 stitches, 1tr in next stitch, ch1, 1Fptc around the treble below the first of the two skipped dc , repeat from * until last stitch, 1tr in last stitch

Repeat Row 3 and 4, eight times, do not pull through or cut yarn. also, do not turn.

Working down left hand-side of square to start, make *26dc to next corner, 3dc in corner. repeat from * three times.  once last corner has been made, make a slip-stitch with the first dc made on the first side and pull through.

I think it will look lovely with my other squares! 🙂

    It looks lovely! I’m looking into making an Afghan myself, for our bedroom. Just chose the new wallpaper, so it’s almost time to pick the yarn for it. This kind of blocked afghan is one of the designs I might pick. Still deciding 😉
