Crochet Ripple Granny Stitch
Learn to crochet Granny Ripple
Learning new stitches is always fun. It’s great to be able to have different designs you can use to create your crochet items. The granny ripple is an old classic that is ideal for creating blankets, scarfs, afghans, etc. I have even seen this design used for skirts and ponchos. I would put the skill level for this pattern at a beginner. If you can chain and double crochet you should be able to crochet it. You will just have to remember that there are stitches that will be skipped, meaning you will not work any stitches in those stitches. (Yes, chains count as stitches in these designs).
The pattern just repeats for as wide and tall as you need. It can be made in a solid color but I tend to think using at least 2 colors is best although I would recommend at least 2 rows of the same color. After your two rows you can change colors. Choose colors you like as well as the type / weight of yarn you prefer. This pattern makes a really pretty baby blanket with or without a border. For this sample I used a light blue and pink and worked two repeats.
