How to Crochet the Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch

The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch is a beautiful stitch that works up quite quickly. It is used in many ways but my favorite is in an afghan, scarf or shawl.

There are a couple different variations but all are similar. The only real difference in them is how tight or loose the look is. The tighter stitches would of course be better used in an afghan and the looser in perhaps a scarf or shawl. Either using cakes or changing up the color every set (using 2 or 3 colors in total) will yield the best results.

What color combination will you use?

Check out this blanket pattern from A Creative Being. Please note, she uses metric sizing (meters).

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! 🙂

Next up are two incredible video tutorials!

B-hooked also has a tutorial that’s easy to follow along.

Their written instructions are found here. 

No matter which of the three you choose to follow along with, you will love how this works up.
When I first did this, I learned from Mikey’s video at the Crochet Crowd but B-Hooked and A Creative Being I’ve found are also easy to follow along with.

We’d love to see your finished pieces!

Happy Crocheting!
