I received this fabulous sort of rustic looking, full of texture yarn as a gift from a friend. It has so much character that I knew I wanted a stitch pattern without a lot of fuss. This slow waves ripple was the perfect choice to show off the incredible texture and color changing.

Crochet Pattern Instructions
Row 1: Ch 30, sk 2 ch, [CL across next 2 ch] 2 times, *5 dc in next ch, [CL across next 2 ch] 4 times, rep from * to last 6 ch, 5 dc in next ch, [CL across next 2 ch] 2 times, dc in last ch, turn.
Note If you tend to make your turning chains very tight, you may need to make chain-3 turning chains throughout, instead of chain-2 turning chains.
Row 2: Working in back loops here and throughout, ch 2, sk first dc, [CL across next 2 sts] 2 times, *5 dc in next st, [CL across next 2 sts] 4 times, rep from * to last 6 sts, 5 dc in next st, [CL across next 2 sts] 2 times, dc in top of beg ch-2, turn.
Rows 3-58: Rep row 2 or until approximately 50″ or until desired length, do not cut off.
Join short end to short end to form a ring, without twisting. These instructions will seam together the two short ends without having to use a needle. This yarn doesn’t work very well with needles. Matching stitch for stitch, slip stitch into the the opposite side of short end, slip stitch back over into the other short end. Repeat back and forth with slip stitch until the short ends are entirely joined, fasten off, weave in ends carefully.
