Crochet Ripple: Inspired by Pink Robin
For a very simple ripple pattern knitting project, this time I chose the Pink Robin theme. Pink Robin is a kind of small bird that is active, agile, attractive and round in shape (really cute, right). Most of these bird species can only be found on the islands of Tasmania, the King and Flinders Islands, Victoria and even southeastern New South Wales. Pink Robin’s favourite habitat is the temperate forest, which is low-lying and subtropical. Their main breeding area must be in moist conditions. Moss thrives in damp places and Pink Robin needs it to make a nest shaped like a cup. They weave moss using cobwebs. They are indeed among the most intelligent bird species.
How to Make a Crochet Ripple?
If you are just getting used to the world of crochet, this pattern is really simple, suitable for making shawls, tablecloths, sofas, baby blankets, or bags. Use a yarn that matches the project you want. For this Pink Robin project of my design, the size is approximately 23 inches wide, 43 inches long. I used Milk Cotton Series 8 Ply crochet yarn, crochet hook size 5.00 mm.
There are several ways to crochet ripple crochet. The version I used was a very simple one, producing a subtle look as well as slightly visible pattern. However, the outcome of a project depends on the type of yarn, the size of the crochet hook as well as the individual fingers. Let’s start with how to crochet it.
