## CROCHET GRANNY RIPPLE TUTORIAL – Free Pattern

**TO GET STARTED**

**Yarn & Hook:** Use 3 colors of any weight yarn and corresponding crochet hook as stated on yarn package. (I used Impeccable yarn from Michaels in Aqua, Soft Taupe, and Arbor Rose but any **worsted weight yarn** will work if you want it to look like my sample!)

**Multiples:** With your first color chain a multiple of 18. A multiple of 18 is just 18+18 added over and over again. For example: * 18,36,54,72,90,108,126,144,162,180,198,216,234,252,270,288, 306,324,342,360,378,396,414,432,450,468,486,504,522,540* etc.

Can this be done with just one (or two) large skeins of multicoloured yarn instead of alternating colors?

Krista

Yep and that would be perfect with no ends to weave in! 😛

Sarah parmer

Thanks Krista☺

Lorraine

Beautiful glad you give us the pattern i have been looking for a different pattern fir granny stitch thank you

Anonymous

when you say 3 dc, skip 2 chains, 3 dc do you mean to chain 2 in between those clusters or to only skip the 2 chains but not chain 2 in between clusters?

Krista

Hi! You just need to skip 2 chains. 🙂

margaret

I have just found this pattern absolutely love it.

I am going to look at my stash of yarn and try it.

Thank you.

Krista

Thank you Margaret! I am so glad you like it. Happy Crocheting! 🙂

Nan

Well l am stumped. It doesn’t state how many chains to do for the Granny Ripple Afaghan

Krista

Hi! It is under the Granny Ripple Tutorial Detail Section:

With your first color chain a multiple of 18. A multiple of 18 is just 18+18 added over and over again. For example: 18,36,54,72,90,108,126,144,162,180,198,216,234,252,270,288, 306,324,342,360,378,396,414,432,450,468,486,504,522,540 etc.

Happy Crocheting!

Lauren

In the foundation row when you said { 3 double crochets, 3 chains, 3 double crochets }, what did you mean?

Krista

Hi Lauren,

You do 3 double crochets, chain 3, 3 double crochets all in one stitch. 🙂

Happy Crocheting!

Krista

Connie

Unless I’m blind….I didn’t see what size hook you used!!

Krista

Hi Connie,

This is a general tutorial. Under the to get started section it says “

Use 3 colors of Yarn and corresponding crochet hook as stated on yarn package”Krista

Davina

I love this pattern, when you say multiples of 18, do you mean as many multiples for the size you want??

Krista

Hi Davina,

Yes. 🙂 You can chose whatever multiple of 18 you wish and the pattern will work. 🙂

Happy Crocheting!

Frances

Would like to make a baby blanket in this stitch, can you make a suggestion as to how many numbers of stitches I need to start? Thanks for the pattern!

Krista

Hi Frances,

I would start with a chain of either 54 or 7s for a baby blanket size. 🙂

Krista

DEBORAH M SMITH

I’ve ripped down twice are the ends of this granny ripple the same or different?

deborah M Smith

My ends are not working out the same any suggestions love the project and want to complete

Tosha

How many rows would you do for a baby blanket

Mikki

Do you have a pattern that you start with the ripple and some how it’s in up being a block???

Cara

Hi Krista,

If I want to make this pattern for a King size bed how do I figure out how many to chain. I know when working with ripples the project shrinks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Krista

Hi Cara,

Since I didn’t measure my sample when I did this tutorial, I’d suggest crocheting the example of 18 chains + 18 and then measuring to see how wide that is. Once that is figured out I’d later figure out how many repeats you’d need to reach 108″(standard king size) then use that starting chain. Hope that helps!
