Ingrid's right on how to do it, but if it's a ripple pattern, it's probably not a bobble. You'll increase 4 stitches in one spot and decrease 4 in another, probably on the same row. That creates the ripple or wave effect. When you increase, it forces more stitches in one spot which will become the arc of the wave. When you decrease, that creates the valley of the wave. It's a very nice and easy pattern once you get the hang of it. Good luck!
