I’m a HUGE fan of granny crochet patterns. Squares, stripes and everything in between! There’s something so soothing about the stitch pattern and falling into a relaxing rhythm while listening to an audiobook or watching TV.

GRANNY RIPPLE PATTERN

Foundation chain

Begin by working out how wide you want your blanket to be. You will need to work in multiples of 18. On my sample piece I have chained 36 (18×2) and added an extra 6. So 42 in total.

If you are making a baby blanket, I recommend chaining 108 then adding 6 for turning. So 114 in total. But this is totally up to you. If you’d like some help with sizing your blanket, this blog may be helpful: How Many Chains For A Blanket?

R1: Working in the 6th chain from the hook (do not include the loop on your hook) insert 3 tr into that chain space.

Skip two chain spaces and do 3tr into the third chain space. Skip two chains again and insert 3tr into the third chain space- you will end up with three clusters of treble crochets.

Now will will work our ‘trough’. Skip five chain spaces and work 3tr into the sixth chain space.

Skip two chain spaces and do 3tr into the third chain space. Skip two chain again and insert 3tr into the third chain space.

Now we will work our ‘Peak’.

Chain 3 and insert another 3tr into the same chain space.

Continue to work down to your ‘trough’ in the same way. Follow the diagram below and chain 5 at the end and turn your work.

R2: When you turn your work, you will now be working within the spaces (between the clusters of trebles) from here on out. Follow the diagram below:

After this round, you can choose to change colours or continue with the same colour. Just keep following the same instructions to build your own Granny Ripple blanket.
