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)
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! 🙂
