Knitting Ripples:

Ripple Stitch is a lot of fun to knit and becomes a quick project because it's so hard to pout down -- you just want to keep watching those ripples materialize. The stitch adds a nice surprise to a sampler afghan knitting project.

  • about 100 yards of the worsted weight yarn of your choice (I used Plymouth Encore color 514)
  • one pair size 8 US knitting needles
  • scissors and yarn needle

16 stitches per 4 inches, or 4 stitches per inch.

Size:

12 by 12 inch block.

  1. Cast on 46 stitches.
  2. Work in Ripple Pattern stitch as follows:

    Row 1: K6, *P2, K6. Repeat from *.
