This ripple pattern puts a new twist on a classic afghan stitch pattern. Faded ripple is a great stitch to use with stripes, as it give a pretty detail to color changes. It 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.
Whatever size you want to make!
Pretty much any size “regular” yarn. Not recommended for novelty yarns
Whichever size coordinates with your yarn.
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.)
