Ripple Stitch Tutorial

By M. J. Joachim

The ripple stitch creates a closely woven fabric that is perfect for inserting into the center of a table runner, or as an all-over design for warmth. It could make a nice hat brim, shawl or even a delicate lace for the edges of pillows and towels.

Foundation: Make a multiple of 3 chain stitches (+1 more chain stitch)

Step 1: Chain 2, make 2 dc in 3rd chain from hook

Step 2: Make {1 sc + 2 dc} in 3rd chain from hook

[Repeat Step 2 across foundation chain, ending with only 1 sc in last chain]

Step 3: Chain 2, turn; make 2 dc in 1st sc

Step 4: Make {1 sc + 2 dc} in next sc (3rd stitch from hook)

[Repeat Step 4 across row, ending with 1 sc in top chain of previous chain 2 at end of row]

Repeat Steps 3 & 4 for pattern
