154 Crochet Wave Patterns and Neapolitan Striped Cowl
Title: 154 Crochet Wave Patterns

I am a huge fan of waves, ripples, and chevrons. I love making afghans and other items with beautiful ripple patterns. 154 Crochet Wave Patterns contains some really great patterns to fit any style and any skill level. There are chevrons, ripples, shells, granny stitches, popcorn stitches, lacy patterns and more!

Every stitch pattern begins with notes about the color sequence, special stitches, and multiples to change the size of the pattern. At the end of the book, there is a great list of abbreviations, tips on working with multiples, and photo tutorials for special techniques.
Here are some of my favorite stitch patterns:
- Posies in a Row – a beautiful chevron pattern with cluster stitches that look like flowers.
- Woven Ribbons – a gorgeous ripple with just a pop of color that resembles ribbon woven through it.
- Spaced Popcorns Chevron – a simple ripple with hints of popcorn stitches throughout.
My most favorite stitch pattern is called Stained Glass (p 143). It’s reminiscent of a corner to corner crochet stitch pattern. I’ve created this beautiful and fairly easy Neapolitan Striped Cowl from the stitch pattern. I love this cowl because it reminds me of neapolitan ice cream. The pink, cream, and brown are like Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate. 🙂
