I was looking for the perfect “comfort crochet” project and I found it! This simple, beginner-friendly (or “mindless” movie watching) ripple pattern creates gentle waves. It uses just one stitch and no complicated decreases. Use six colors to create the gradient effect I have, or make it scrappy. A video tutorial is included at the end to walk you through the pattern and two options for changing colors.

This pattern is available for FREE on my blog by following the link below.

The free version is supported by advertising on my website. The downloadable pdf for sale on Ravelry includes includes the full pattern in one printable file without advertisements.
