The rolling waves stitch is a wonderful pattern for decorating the surface of a crocheted item, and to render a surface that appears to look 3D , but are just a bit ripply, which means the whole surface itself is relatively easy to make and does not require a lot of yarn, like highly developed 3D surfaces do. Also, when you combine this stitch with the right choice of colors, such as a gradient in a given palette, this becomes a stunning field of colored and shimmering ripples.
