Currently creating: Crochet vintage fan ripple blanket


A while back, I bought this yarn with the intention of making a ripple blanket. I then realised that I would quickly become bored with it so I put the yarn away. That is until I came across this gorgeous pattern. I started the blanket the other week and it’s growing fast. I’m using a 4.5mm crochet hook and Rico Design Creative Cotton Aran in tangerine, nougat, sky blue, light yellow, and light green. How lovely are these colours together?

  12. This afghan is truly beautiful

  13. I love this pattern, it’s a beautiful change from the normal ripple afghans. Thank you so much for including the free pattern ! I have my yard, so I am ready to start !

  14. I am really confused with this pattern. I get the up side of the three sc in one stitch but what about the down side? It just stays flat? Then if you repeat for the next row , HOW? You now have an increase of the three sc in one stitch? I really want to make this but I just cant figure it out. Am i the only one finiding this hard do?

    • I’m not sure what you mean. On the second and third row you skip 2 stitches in between the peaks to get the valleys. This means that your fourth stitch ends up on top of a peak and that’s where you do three sc in the same stitch. The whole blanket is worked through the back loop only. Hope that helps.

  15. On the pattern I printed it DOESNT say to skip 2 anywhere on the second row. I added that to my pattern and that FIXED IT! THANKS!

    • The second (and third) row starts with skip 1 and after the stitches which make up the peak is another skip 1. Since you repeat this until the end of the row you get 2 skipped stitches in between the peaks. I was slightly confused by it as well before I actually started. Good luck with your blanket! :)

  16. I absolutely LOVE this pattern. I’m fairly new to crocheting, I have a question about the pattern, I get the fan part, but after the last after the last trtr do you slip stitch or anything between the next fan or do you just connect them?

  17. I have a question. I am doing a sampler blanket and would love to add this in, how can I go from this to a straight line again? I just love this, it is so beautiful.

    • Thank you! By doing a row where you do 1 sc or 1 dc (whatever you prefer) in the stitch at the very top of the peaks and in between the peaks chain a few stitches to get to the next peak. Next row would then be a straight line. That’s how I would do it anyway.

  18. How many skeins of each color do you use for a queen blanket? It’s beautiful!!!!

  19. Also…what are the ;names of the colors…I love the way they look together! Great job!

  20. I’m very confused. Trying to do this pattern now. On Row 2 is says “(Do a sc in each of the next 4 sts, 3 sc in the next, then another 4 sc in each of the next 4 sts.) Keep repeating this until the end of the chain.” I understand that the 3 dc in 1 st makes the peak but where is a skip or dec st for the valleys? I’m basically crocheting a diamond shaped twirl chain thing…?

    • The second (and third) row starts with skip 1 and after the stitches which make up the peak is another skip 1. Since you repeat this until the end of the row you get 2 skipped stitches in between the peaks. Hope that helps! :)

  21. I made it through the first row of the trtr’s, but now I can only do 3 sc before I get to the peak, do three sc in the peak stitch, then 3 sc down the peak before I have to skip two again for the valley. Where did I go wrong? If I do 4 sc, I pass the peak, and then work down into the valley.
