vintage fan ripple blanket wip



I just realized that this is my first ripple blanket! :)

I’m still working on this lovely blanket, which is growing ever so slightly, and making me very happy! I’m working it with a 4mm hook with Scheepjes Softfun yarn, and each colour repeat yields about 1″/2,5cms of blanket :) If I work one colour every day, it should be finished relatively fast (if…).

I think I’m going to repeat this colour pattern throughout the blanket. I’m currently on the yellow row, after this there’s a blue colour, and then the whole thing repeats.


I will be happy hooking this over the Christmas vacation! :) Currently this WIP resides next to our sofa, in it’s own basket…


Oh, the pattern I’m using is the Vintage Fan Ripple, and when I finish the blanket I’ll make a proper photo tutorial of it! :)

  24. can I print out your pattern? That would be so wonderful. I do most of my work at appointments and cannot use my computer then. It would be awesome
    if you do have. Shirley


  25. I would love to do this pattern!!! I have tried but cannot figure it out on my own…..will be glad when you make a tutorial for it……what you have posted is beautiful!!!

  26. Your ripple blanket is lovely – I really like your choice of colours.

  27. Beautiful colours. I’ve added this pattern to my long list of things to do!

  28. Would this stitch look right with a variegated yarn? Would that do the stitches justice? I’m thinking neutral with a contrasting color in the varigated. Or a pink peppermint twist – I love baby bee yarn. What guage Would you suggest? I’ve been Crocheting for years, and I love to do new stitches.

    • Hi Darlene! You could always try a variegated yarn. Personally, I don’t think it would suit this pattern, but who knows, it might look spectacular! :) Be sure to show me some pictures!
