Hurray, free pattern day! :)
Today I’m sharing the pattern for the vintage fan ripple blanket, which I finished last week.
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).
Got everything? Let’s get started! (for people who like working from charts: there’s a chart at the end of this blog post!)
Special stitches: triple treble (trtr). This sounds complicated, but it isn’t! To make a triple treble: Yarn over 4 times, insert your hook into the next stitch. Yarn over, and pull up a loop. *Yarn over, and pull through two loops.* Repeat till you’ve worked through all loops. This is a very long stitch, and you might need a little practice to make your triple trebles nice and even. This is totally okay! :)
5. Slip stitch into the next 3 stitches (back loop only). Chain 6; this counts as the first triple treble. Work 2 more trtr, 3 trtr in same stitch, 3 trtr. Skip 2 stitches. Repeat *sk 2 st, 3trtr, 3trtr in same stitch, 3trtr, sk 2 st* around. Remember to work all stitches into the back loops only.
If you run into any problems with this pattern, let me know in the comments.
Are you going to make this blanket? I’d love to see! :)
