Skill level: easy

Stitches used: chain, slip stitch, double crochet

Abbreviations used:
Ch: chain
Sl St: slip stitch
Dc: double crochet
Sp: space

Special terms:
Block: (sl st, ch3, 3dc) in space indicated
Peak: (sl st, ch3, 3dc, ch3, 3dc) in space indicated.

Notes: change colors as often as desired.
Gauge isn’t important for this pattern. You will want to make your first row 20-25% longer than the width you want since this is a ripple pattern and will become narrower after the first row. With an H hook and worsted weight yarn, one repeat of the pattern was 5 inches. When making row 1, be sure to make a multiple of six blocks.

Instructions: Row 1: Ch 4. 3 dc in 4th ch from hook. You will have a little block like this:

Rip 1

Ch 4. 3 dc in 4th chain from hook. Now you have this:

Rip2

Continue making blocks in this manner (that is, [Ch 4. 3 dc in 4th chain from hook]) until you reach your desired width, making sure you have a multiple of six blocks. It will look something like this:

Rip3

Ch1 and turn.

Row 2: Sl st in first ch3 space. This is where your hook goes:

Rip4

Ch3, 3dc in same ch3 space. Sl st in next ch3 space. Ch3, 3dc in same space. Make peak in next ch3 space. It looks like this:Rip6

(make block in next ch3 space) twice. Now it should look like this:

Rip8

Sl st in next ch3 space. {(make block in next ch3 space) twice. Make peak in next ch3 space. (make block in next ch3 space)twice. Sl st in next ch3 space} across to end. Note, you end with a sl st. Ch1 and turn.

Rip9

Row 3: {(make block in next ch3 space)twice. Make peak in next ch3 space. (make block in next ch3 space)twice. Sl st in next ch3 space.} Repeat this across to end. Ch1 and turn.

Rip10

Repeat row three until desired length is reached. Add your favorite border if desired. See how easy this is after row 1?
Working in your ch3 spaces, it is just: Block, block, peak, block, block, slip stitch
