On Fridays, I share a link blast on G+, Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! In keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns that were first released at least 12 months ago.
I love ripples, chevrons, waves. These form some of the most iconic crochet patterns. Today’s roundup includes 15 free crochet patterns for acccessories and blankets using a variety of ripple stitch patterns.

Lazy Waves Blanket (photo 10), free crochet pattern by @dedristrydom: Dedri used 17 colors for this cuddly blanket, which can be made with medium weight yarn or by using two strands of light/DK weight yarn held together.
This was one of the prizes from the Ripple Mania CAL, but linda74 from alottastitches already owned a copy. This is a great pattern book for ripple lovers (or crocheters in general) with 16 ripple afghan patterns.
This giveaway is open to all readers. Enter by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, January 2, 2013.
Whether you’re just joining in or you’ve been participating in the Ripple Mania Crochet-a-long since October, I know you’re excited to hear more about the prizes! The Ripple Mania CAL has four fantastic sponsors, Coats & Clark, Leisure Arts, Lion Brand Yarn, and Magique Enterprises, who have each put together a great prize package. This post describes the prizes, explains how you can enter the giveaway, and includes the schedule for the Ripple Mania CAL. All images are used with permission.
Lion Brand Yarn is sponsoring a wonderful Ripple Mania prize package – 4 skeins of Amazing in Strawberry Fields, enough yarn to crochet the Candy Color Ripple Cowl. You’ll have a fashionable accessory just in time for the deep cold of winter!
And for those of you who have been longing to try an Eleggant crochet hook after reading my review, Magique Enterprises is sponsoring a set including the Eleggant comfort crochet handle, six interchangeable hooks (in steel sizes 1.25 mm, 1.75 mm, and 2.25 mm, and in aluminum sizes 3.5 mm, 5.0 mm, and 6.0 mm), and o-rings.
Now that you’ve heard about all the amazing prizes available, you may be wondering how to enter this giveaway. Read on for details!

To share your project on Facebook: Post a Wall photo on the Underground Crafter page. (Remember that if you don’t “like” the page, I won’t be able to message you on Facebook, so you’ll have to check back to see if you’ve won.)
To share your project on this blog: Post a link to a project photo (on your blog, Flickr, etc.) in the comments.
To share your project on Twitter: Tweet @ucrafter #ripplemania with a link to a photo of your project.
