"Learn to crochet the Granny Ripple Stitch. This pattern is great for making blankets, afghans, scarfs, table runners, etc. It uses basic stitches such as double crochet, and chains. This blog post will give you the written instructions as well as provide a link for my free YouTube video tutorial for those who prefer to watch video or are visual learners.

The granny stitch was the first stitch I learned and I made my first afghan using it. My second project was a ripple afghan. I must have made a dozen as Christmas gifts. Every one loved them. So now I go one step higher and combine the two. What an inspired idea!

Oh I have made lots of afghans using the ripple stitch. When I was a girl, I had an entry at the local county fair, for my 4H club. It was a patriotic afghan in red, white and blue of course! This twist on a classic, well, this IS combining two classics in to one!

I have to admit that the Ripple Stitch in just about any form is not my favorite, but my senior ladies love it. A few of them still have the afghans they made back in the 1970s and will bring them in to show the class. So I usually try to include a few patterns featuring this stitch when were working on our Granny Square lessons.
