2021 Fall CAL Week 2: Harvest Waves Throw


Welcome to the 2021 Fiber Flux Fall Crochet Along...hooray! Today marks week two of the CAL and we'll beginning to stitch up the Harvest Waves Throw!  This is a fabulous throw that adds a little fall cheer to your home.  A simple to stitch granny ripple make this a fun and satisfying project!


We will be going over a few things today to begin:

  • Sizing 
  • Stitch multiples
  • The granny ripple stitch pattern
  • Color change frequency (how-to is on the video)
  • Schedule of the CAL
  • Where to connect with other makers


Be sure to scroll down for the schedule with actual dates and what we'll be doing on each day/week.

*This is a self-paced project, so definitely go at the speed you feel most comfortable. The instructional videos and posts will be up forever and you will always be able to go back and watch again and again!



Here is a quick video introduction to the CAL and more information about supplies too:

Check out this week's video to learn more about the stitch multiples, stitch pattern, and color changes:


Also, to refresh from last week, here is some sizing info...I made a quick throw size, not too big, but perfect to throw over the back of my sofa to give my space a gorgeous fall accent.  If you want to change the width of your blanket, see the stitch multiples below.  To change the height you would simply work more or less rows.  You may need more or less yarn as well if you choose to change the sizing, yarn weight, hook size, etc.

Check out the sizing chart below for some common blanket sizes too!


The throw as shown in the photos measures:
  • 54 inches wide 
  • 54 inches tall


Here's our CAL schedule below for easy reference:

  • Thursday October 7, Intro + Supplies
  • Thursday October 14, Stitch Pattern, Multiples, Color Changes
  • Thursday October 21, Finish Work
  • Thursday October 28, Reveal and Recap


Now that we're all up to speed, let's jump right into our pattern, shall we?

I did 5 rows of each color.

Starting chain multiple is 18.

For the size blanket pictured (also see sizing information above), ch 180 (you can adjust the width by modifying the chain. Just be sure you stay in line with the stitch multiples)

Row 1: Work 3 dc in the 5th ch from the hook, skip the next 2 ch, then work 3 dc into the next chain. Skip next 2 ch, then *work (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) (this creates the "peak" of the ripple) into the next chain, then skip the next 2 ch, then work  3 dc into the next ch. Skip next 2 ch, 3 dc into the next ch.  Skip the next 5 ch (creates the "valley" of the ripple), 3 dc in next chain, skip next 2 ch. 3 dc in next ch, skip next 2 ch. Repeat from * across to the end until just 1 ch remains.  Work a dc into the last ch.

Row 2: Ch 4 and turn.  Work 3 dc in between the first and second dc groupings/clusters.  Work 3 dc in the space between the next two groupings.  *Work (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch 3 space (top of the "peak"). Work 3 dc in between the next two dc groupings/clusters.  Work 3 dc in between the space between the next two groupings.  Skip the ch 5 space (the "valley" of the ripple), then work 3 dc in between the next two dc groupings/clusters.  Work 3 dc in between the space between the next two groupings.  Repeat from * to the end of the row.  To finish the row, work a dc in to the top chain of the turning chain.

Repeat row 2 for as tall as you want your blanket to be, changing colors every 5 rows.
