How to Knit Ripple Stitch

When you knit ripple stitch, the purl stitches make wavy lines like zigzags. Ripple stitch is popular in afghans and scarves because it knits up quickly. Whether you choose a solid color, team colors, bright, or pastel, the ripple stitch will have you riding smooth waves.
