The Ripple Ridge Lace Knitting Pattern easily creates a beautiful and graceful texture. Similar to a vintage feather and fan, this old shale stitch variation includes an added structure with garter ridges between each of the lacy rows.
My inspiration for this design is my local Mavericks, the famous big wave surfing spot visible from my knitting studio near Half Moon Bay, California! It’s a popular spot for experienced big-wave surfers during the winter months when waves can top out at over 60 ft (18 m).
Enjoy! I hope you are inspired to knit my Mavericks Wave Ripple Blanket for yourself, family, and friends.
