I am doing the lacy chevron afghan and I chose this because the chevron patterns seem to have more pronounced peaks and troughs and ripple are more gentle waves. Also the stitches mingle with the previous rows on the chevron whereas they don't on the ripple patterns.

Hope this makes sense!

As others have said, chevron is more geometric and "harsh" like a V (by definition of the word, too) while a ripple is more subtle, organic, and soft, like the ripples on the surface of a pool of water when you disturb it.

Here are some pictures of the start of the afghan. I've just paused to make some baby cardis for my friend's new granddaughter, not yet born.
