When I started selling my crochet items early December, one of my relatives asked me if I would make her some boot cuffs! Well, they have definitely been my best-selling item thus far! I was really excited when a local salon and boutique, 2 Chic asked to buy 10 pair from me! I live in Auburn, Alabama which if you don’t know, is a college town and the latest trendy items are very important to these college girls. Needless to say, I worked HOURS getting them done but loving every minute of it too.
After making a few for my customers, I finally got a chance to write the pattern for the ripple stitch pattern and wanted to share it with everyone else! I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you catch any errors or have questions. Constructive criticism is always welcomed. It is the only way to get better!
