Back to Afghan Squares

Ripples on the Shore


Ripples on the Shore is a new 12 inch afghan square.

This simple design was inspired by the beach very near to my new home in Cornwall.

Available as a free pattern in US or UK terms.

Watching gentle waves lapping on the shore at the edge of the ocean,
a time for quiet contemplation to allow space and time to just breathe.

We all need time for peace in our busy lives, and I hope this design reminds you of the peace that can be found on a quite beach.


I am thrilled to have been asked to design a 12 inch square for the fabulous “Block-a-Month” Crochet A-long 2018 on Ravelry…or BAMCAL as it is affectionately called.
