Ripple in Time Throw – A Free Crochet Pattern

Every once in a while we experience these moments in time when we are caught off guard and surprised.

**UPDATE: FREE VIDEO COMPANION TUTORIAL FOUND AT END OF PATTERN**

Sometimes these moments are a moment of calm and peace in the middle of a routine or hectic day. They are ripple in time moments. In my house they are often times when I enjoy a quiet moment with my kids, or when I observe them, reading together in the big arm chair that sits in our living room.

Shortly after finishing this blanket, before I could even get the photos of it, I found that it was traveling around the house. I would keep it tucked in my office, but would find it in our TV room, sprinkled in popcorn. It would be draped across the office chair in my husbands office after a cool morning. I would find in newly crumpled in that big armchair in my living room where two of my children had just been reading together. In a mere matter of moments this throw became the house favourite.

And there is no wonder why! The Caron Chunky Cakes are oh so soft! The result is a super cozy and soft blanket, great for cooler days and those ripple in time moments.

This throw features great texture, displaying a variety of stitches. It requires six Caron Chunky Cakes and an 8mm crochet hook.

    1. Hi Michele, I don’t have a specific video up yet, but if you check out my Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/richtextures/) and scroll down to my Facebook Live Newsletter for this past Sunday (one week ago), I do a stitch along featuring the raised ripple stitch which is found in the pattern. It should help!

  1. Hello! I was wondering if this could be made with light weight yarn? Also if need to be made wider what would the starting chain be?

    1. Yes you can make it with a lighter weight yarn. You’re stitch count will be an odd number plus 2 for the starting chain.

  2. Lovely pattern! What a great idea you had. Fun to make, and your video is very comprehensive. I was having trouble understanding working in ‘the third loop’ until you mention hdc in the video and then it made sense… three loops in a hdc! I’m making it in variegated greens and it’s really turning out nice. They were out of the color you made yourse in. Thanks much!

    1. Thank you so much! I always love hearing when someone is enjoying one of my patterns. Yours sounds like it’s going to be beautiful! I’m glad the video was helpful 🙂

  3. I love this pattern and it is working up lovely. I have a question. On the second set of FPTC I am getting 89 stitches. But the first set has 91. Is this correct? Thank you for a wonderful pattern.

    1. Hello Emily, when you count the second set, are you including the ch 3 at the beginning of your count? The stitch count should be the same throughout 🙂
