200 Ripple Stitch Patterns: Exciting Patterns to Knit and Crochet for Afghans, Blankets, and Throws by Jan Eaton is the new edition of the classic 2006 collection of beautiful stitch patterns for ripples, chevrons, and waves. The book opens with a thumbnail table of contents that lets you find favorite stitches again.
Yes, there are 200 patterns in the book, but they are variations of these 94 original patterns. For example, a knitting pattern may include a 3-color and a 6-color variation with different notes about where to change colors. Similarly, a crochet pattern might include 2-color, 4-color, and 5-color variations. So, the book does actually have 200 patterns as each design is written in at least one alternate variation.
The book also includes 5 project patterns for a cushion (pillow) cover, a scarf, a wrap, a baby blanket, and an afghan. Each of the project patterns includes a brief introduction, suggestions for working in knit or crochet, and tips for choosing a stitch pattern and combining colors. The pattern will include specific directions using one of the book’s stitch patterns along with four suggested alternative patterns. 
If you are bi-stitchual and enjoy both crocheting and knitting, 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns: Exciting Patterns to Knit and Crochet for Afghans, Blankets, and Throws by Jan Eaton is a great stitch guide that will keep you inspired!
