Playing with the tunisian ripple stitch: let's be asymmetrical

I really like the ripple or chevron stitch. During the last months I’ve been crocheting many items using the Tunisian crochet technique.

I like its texture. So, I decided to give a try to the ripple stitch.

These two webs explain very clearly how to do it:

In fact, I think the ripples are easier in Tunisian crochet than in normal crochet.

I thought that it would be interesting to see what happened when using a different number of stitches in each of the ripples. The effect is that the sample/garment/afghan/piece/item doesn’t lay horizontally, it goes up and up.

You can go as far as your imagination drives you: bags, totes, afghans, whatever you like!

The .pdf file gives three versions of the tunisian ripple.
The finish is different but very nice!
