First let’s get to the patter for the ripple crochet pillow.

Crocheted Ripple Pillow WH

This crocheted pillow is a little different because you are going to use the ends of your crochet as the edge of your pillow.  Keeping the fun ripple visible.  Why hide those lovely ripple ends?

Ripple Patterns are pretty easy. All you need to know is a Double Crochet and how to increase and decrease stitches.  I don’t have a tutorial on how to do increase and decrease stitches right now, but you can use this tutorial from Moogly to learn how.

For a ripple pattern you will always use a multiply of 16 when starting your chain.  For this size pillow I started with 64 stitches  for a lap sized blanket you would start with 104 stitches for larger blankets you would increase your foundation chain in 16 stitch increments.

Chain 64

Row 1 ~ Double Crochet into 3rd chain from the hook.  Double Crochet into the next 6 chains {total of 7 Double Crochets}, 3 Double Crochets into next chain, Double Crochet in next 6 stitches.  *3 Double Crochet decreases, Double Crochet in 6 chains, 3 Double Crochets in next chain, Double Crochet in 6 chains* Repeat from * to  * till 2 chains remain. 2 Double Crochet decreases in last two chains. Chain 2 and turn your work.

Row 2 ~ Skip first Double Crochet, Double Crochet in next 7 stitches. *3 Double Crochets decreases, Double Crochet 6 stitches, 3 Double Crochets in next stitch, 6 Double Crochets. * Repeat from * to * till 2 stitches remain, 2 Double Crochet decreases in last two chains. Chain 2 and turn your work.

Row 3 – to End ~ Repeat Row 2 till your pillow is as big as you want it to be.  For this pillow I had a total of 41 rows.  If you have a pillow form you are covering make sure to measure your work against the pillow form.

Tie off your end and weave in all ends.

Fold your work in half and whip stitch the two short sides together.  Stuff your pillow with polyfil {like I did} or place your pillow form inside the crochet work.  Then use a running stitch to sew the top of your pillow shut.  This will make the  ripples the top of your pillow.
