  1. How can I increase and decrease stichs to crochet a square with a 5 rows circle, begining with 19 double crochet??

  2. can I skip the second row? I like the look of just the first row of stitches so it’s less square-ish?

  3. Thank you…so helpful. I am new to crochet and instead of doing something easy, I’ve bitten off a lot.

    I have 120 multi-colored circles that I need to turn into squares and then join together for a blanket however, many of my circles are different sizes…I didn’t keep the number of stitches constant (some circles may have 30 stitches round some 18 and so on) So, how do I know how many stitches to make for each “side” of the square? I notice that you are doing 2 of each kind. Can you help?

  4. I’m soo glad I found this video! I tried following this method with another one of your videos and just got confused. You rock!

  5. Technically the beginning of the triangle starts off as a circle if you are working it in rounds. Your points form as you work your increase corners.

  6. I love how you bury the tail of the second color in your work. I learned this method years ago, and it eliminates weaving in after you have finished.

  7. First you will divide the square in to 4 parts. There will be 3 stitches in in each part. Two stitches will form the flat side of your square. You will need to do increases in your third stitch. That may be 3 double crochet, chain 2, 3 double crochet . You will continue on around with your next side the same way until all 4 sides are complete.

  8. I’m extremely new at crocheting and was wondering if you could help me out. I have a much smaller circle that I would like to turn into a square. It’s only a little more than 3″ across. I only have 12 spaces around, so there would be two space between corners. What do you think would be the best way to go about it?

  9. The hook size will depend on your yarn. A size G may work better for a dishcloth when you are looking for tighter and closer stitches.

  10. I really like this one, made a dishcloth from it. I used a G hook instead of an I. I added an extra row of sc to make larger. The piece seemed a little tight, haven’t used it yet. What hook would you use for a dishcloth? I bet you’d have an neat idea how to make this into a 7 inch square dishcloth? Many thanks!

  11. Thank you. I will send you the link I have for more crochet stitches. That may help refresh your memory.

  12. Man you are so talented at this. I LOVED this video. I have crocheted for years but I dropped it and just have started back, since I have a new grand baby coming and I am crocheting a quilt. And it is all double crochet! I wish I could remember better stiches but I guess this will do for now! Thanks 4 the videos God bless you

  17. Hi

    i have been trying this one and having a few problems. I have done all the rounds for the circle but when it comes to forming the square i have too many spaces left over before the corner and it seems out of shape. What am i doing wrong lol? I have counted 20 stitches on the first and second row and 40 on the third row.

  18. You can try the triple crochet and quadruple crochet. It might be necessary to use chains for the rest of it to get a corner.

  19. Dear Teresa,

    I have tryed this pattern 4 times and each time I end up with 3 chains before I do the last decrease! How many do you start with in the demo? I did the 12 + 6 like you said but it did not work for me. I started out with 30 chains.
    Help please.

  20. Hey Teresa,
    I just started making an afghan using the ripple stitch and thanks to you I am actually doing for the first time. I just can’t tell you enough how grateful I am that you make these video’s for me and thousands of other crocheters. The way that you explain everything with such a warm and comfortable voice just makes learning stitches or refreshing stitches so pleasureable. I start begin and end everyday with crocheting. Soooo thank you so much for everything.

  21. @thesleepyteacup13 Maybe I can help with the answer on the valleys try skipping only 2 stitches on the foundation row and skipping only 1 stitch on the rest of the rows. She does it at 8:50 in the video

  22. i am having the exact issue as divatia, i chain 30 but come up short in the end. I have even checked into the written instructions and i am having the same issue. Also how do you do the “valleys” on the rows after the first, i seem to be doing the decreases wrong. I am skipping two stitches just like the foundation row but it doesnt seem to work out. please help. thanks.

  23. In the written instructions I notice that the pattern length is in multiples of 12+6 which I can understand and follow, but in the video I the only way I can follow to a T is if I chain in multiples of 14+7. Can you specify how many chains it took to make the swatch in this particular video to avoid any confusion? Besides that the tutorial is great. Thank you!

  24. Finally! I’m so glad you do video demonstrations because I still get confused when reading patterns. Plus for a beginner like me, most patterns just plain don’t make any sense whatsoever. Especially since everyone has different abbreviations. I’m pregnant and not sure what I’m having yet and I wanted to start on an easy crochet pattern for a blanket. I’d prefer to crochet because I can change colors quick and easy plus I don’t have to deal with two needles.

  25. You are the reason I signed up on YouTube, thank you so much for being so patience and detailed in explaining how to make a ripple crochet. I have watched many instructional crochet videos on YouTube and you are the best instructor I have found so far. Hope to learn more crochet stitches from you!

  26. @acidentprone For example, if you wanted 8 ripples, you would take 8×12=96+6=102. You will make a chain of 102. Each set of 12 chains is what you need for each ripple. There will always be an odd amount of stitches at the beginning of each pattern stitch that you are doing, which is the 6 extra chains which are added on 1 time.

  27. Ok, I see…so make my length in multiples of 12, like 36, 48, or 60 and then right at the end of the first row add the six extra stitches?

  28. @acidentprone It takes 12 chains to make each ripple. The +6 are the extra stitches at the beginning.

  29. This beautiful pattern is going to be used by me to make an afghan ! Thank you so much ! I will post a vid response when i am done ! almost there ! luv it ! thanks again
