Unique. Challenging. Free pattern! These were my first thoughts when I stumbled across this beautiful vintage blanket on a “creative being blog”, however despite the challenging look,  it is an easy pattern which creates a great impact. This Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch pattern is absolutely lovely for a baby blanket or a afghan. You can choose to make it in one color if you wish, I do love the many colors in this afghan because of the way it shows the waves. This gorgeous blanket is another great way to use left over yarn .

What do you need:
yarn (I used Softfun cotton/acrylic yarn by Scheepjeswol)
a matching crochet hook (I used a 4mm hook)
a darning needle to sew in the ends
a pair of scissors
For this blanket, which measures about 1.40 x 1.40m, I used 14 balls of Softfun (two of every colour used, in colour ways 2496, 2531, 2466, 2449, 2451, 2519 and 2514).

  1. Are there written instructions? I don’t learn well from pictures and videos (not to mention, I can’t figure out how to open any pictures or video)

  2. Go to You Tube, there are tutorials there this is one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpqPGU8asWg or find How to Crochet – The Crochet Crowd so yes it is available. The picture above was a Pinterest post. Sometimes I like Pinterest but what I don’t like is the people who fake it – they say they made whatever it is they have crochet, but really they have not, it’s been photoshopped from some other place that sells the item made up – usually an overseas company like Aliexpress
