Free Healing Granny Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern

Here’s how it works.

Hi Everyone! Today I’d like to share my new design for the Healing Granny Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern. This free crochet afghan pattern is available in six standard sizes.

I worked on this project while I was struggling with my depression and anxiety in December and January. For those of you who have been wondering how I am, things are starting to improve for me now – I’m still taking baby steps but we are on the right treatment path now and I am feeling significantly more balanced. Thank you for your kind words, messages and emails. Each one brought me comfort.

I have had this pattern fully tech edited by my wonderful tech editor (thank you Amy!) and she has also created a stitch diagram for the blanket and the edging which is included in the PDF version of the post. Purchase the PDF version with Stitch Diagrams here: Healing Granny Ripple Afghan PDF

This blanket is available in 6 standard sizes. The pattern is written first as the throw size, which is the one I designed and crocheted (pictured in this post) and then the pattern is presented again with multiple sizes and stitch counts for each size.

I used 4 Caron Big Cakes to make the Throw Size blanket. Not only did this make choosing colors easy, it also removed the hassle of needing to weave in lots and lots of ends!  I only had 2 ends per ball to weave in when I was done crocheting the blanket. No one enjoys weaving in ends, especially when they are trying to crochet something comforting for themselves (or for someone else).

I hope this blanket can bring comfort to you as you crochet it and to whomever you choose to give it to. Much love, Rhondda

Healing Granny Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern

The Healing Granny Ripple Blanket is crocheted back and forth in rows. Once you reach the blanket length you want, add the edging in rounds to the blanket.

 

CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN FOR THROW SIZE 

 

Using your 6 mm (J) hook (or size required for gauge):

To begin, chain the number of stitches for the blanket you wish to make, each repeat (26 sts) will add approximately 5” to the width. To make the same size blanket as I made, which is perfect as a throw, follow these specific instructions below. For guidance on making specific sizes, see the Pattern for Multiple Sizes after this one.

 

Foundation Chain Row: Ch 261.

R1: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1), 3 dc in first ch, ch 1, *(sk the next 2 chs, 3 dc in the next ch, ch 1) 2 times, sk the next 2 chs, dc3tog over the next 3 chs, sk the next 3 chs, dc3tog over the next 3 chs, (ch 1, sk the next 2 chs, 3 dc in the next ch) 2 times, ch 1, sk the next 2 chs, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1) in the next ch**.

Turn. [202 dc, 62 ch1sp, 9 ch2sp]

 

R2-R61: Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch 1), 3 dc in the first ch1sp, ch 1, (sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the next ch1sp, ch 1) 2 times, sk the next 3 dc, dc3tog cl in the next ch1sp, sk the next 2 dc3tog sts, dc3tog cl in the next ch1sp, ch 1.  *Sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the next ch1sp, ch 1) 2 times, sk the next 3 dc, (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the next ch2sp, ch 1, (sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the next ch1sp, ch 1) 2 times, sk the next 3 dc, dc3tog cl in the next ch1sp, sk the next 2 dc3tog sts, dc3tog cl in the next ch1sp, ch 1**.  Rep from * to ** across to the last dc3tog. You should have 3 sets of (3 dc, ch 1) and 1 dc remaining. Sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the next ch1sp, ch 1) 2 times, sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc in the last ch1sp, ch 1, 1 dc in the last dc. Turn.

  1. Hi Cara, The gauge is worked in pattern. I apologize for the confusion! Have fun crocheting the blanket 🙂 I loved making this one – especially because I didn’t have to change my yarn or sew in lots of ends! Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. Hi Rhondda,
    I’m sorry if this is a silly question but the gauge swatch, is it worked in pattern? Or is it simply just worked in straight dc worked in rows?
    Thanks a bunch. Lovely pattern can’t wait to get started on one for my daughter.

  3. The foundation chain is 261 plus you start R1 with an additional ch 4. So you crochet 261 + 4 = 265 to make the blanket the size I did. If you scroll down you will see the pattern offered in additional sizes too. It will give you the foundation chain you will need to make and then the same R1 information so you would need to add an additional 4 chs to the foundation chain totals. It was written this way to make it easier for me to offer other sizes 🙂 I apologize for any confusion this caused. Wishing you the best, Rhondda

  4. I too am confused. The foundation chain is 261. Do I then chain an additional 4 to start the first row?

  5. Thank you, Rhonda. I purchased a pattern on rivalry that was linked to this page before I noticed you response. It has the same pictures so I’m hoping you will receive the payment. I love this blanket!

  6. Hello,
    I think there used to be a diagram of the blanket and edging for the Granny Ripple but I don’t see it anymore. Can you repost it?
    Thank you

  7. I am a bit confused on the 1st step. I chain 261, then 4 additional and then do 3 DC into the 1st chain (the last of the 261 correct?)
