Free Pattern: Granny Goes Ripple Afghan

Once you get the pattern on how it grows at the top peaks and reduces at the bottom valleys, it’s a cinch!

Give it a try. I have provided resources below to help you.

I have a free pattern for you that can follow along, it’s called Granny Goes Ripple.

In the video tutorial, I have shown an example of my crochet diagram that I used for myself. I figured out that I can change the sizes easily by figuring out the multiple chain counts.

For changing sizes, use Multiples of 18… at the end of the chain ADD 1.

Here is my diagram as part of my rough notes. You are welcome to save it and/or print it for your own records.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

  1. How do you calculate how much yarn if you use bigger needles than the pattern calls for?

    1. Mikey says:

      that is just trial and error. You could crochet 6″ of whatever it is… then measure the weight of the yarn. Determine how many more inches you need and make a calculation.

  2. Tam says:

    Currently creating this but just wondering if you have a video for the border? I struggle to read patterns.

    Thank you for the pattern TammyeHoney. I have printed it off.

    1. Pam G. says:

      I also rewatch the video. Discover a trick reminder on it. When you get to the 5 change on the granny ripple. It the imaginationary sign saying to skip two 3 dc stitches. That is the way to keep the bottom peak or bottom loop pointing downwards. Well that is what I gotten from it.

  5. Where can I get a printable version of this? I find the diagrams difficult to follow and am very new to having to play and stop the video and concentrate on what I am doing – would appreciate any help thank yoi

  6. Karen says:

    “Bang on”… really easy and once I got going, don’t have to count at all. I started it with a variegated color I already had in my stash, but I think this may look better in solids or at least some solid rows to show off the pattern better. I’ll share a picture on facebook when I get done. (may be awhile tho… multiple WIP, lol)

  7. Carol says:

    So helpful. Now I can start this pretty afghan today. Love your videos!!

    1. Carol says:

      How to get print of written instructions?

  8. Leslie says:

    Right now I’m making the Spectrum Afghan for Project Linus, then I will make this ripple afghan, also for Project Linus.

  9. Tausha says:

    Love this. Starting this today with all my leftover yarn from the mystery CAL. How would I do a border on this kind of afghan?

    1. Tausha says:

      Nevermind, the written pattern gives direction for am edging.

      1. anita says:

  11. Carolyn Nance says:

    Mikey does great tuts. Easy to follow.

  12. Debbie Goin says:

    I am very interested in making the “Granny Ripple Afghan”, but I do not know how to read a diagram. The tutorials are very helpful, but I learned to crochet with pictures in a book of each stitch so it has taken a long time to “read” a pattern, but I can do it. Do you have any tutorials on reading a crochet diagram?


    1. TammyeHoney says:

      Chain 109 stitches. Row 1 DC 3 times in fifth stich from hook, skip two ch, DC 3 times, skip 2 chains, DC 3 times chain 3 DC 3 times (This is top peak) skip 2 ch DC 3 times, skip 2, DC 3 times, skip 5 (Crochet in 6th st) DC 3 times, skip 2 ch, DC 3 times, skip 2 ch, DC 3 times chain 3 and DC 3 times (another peak) skip 2 …….end of row will be the down then DC 1 in last stitch and turn. Chain 3 start again…

      1. shan says:

        Thank you Tammye honey. Where do I change color? Thanking in advance

      2. TammyeHoney says:

        On the third row…he explains that in the video

      3. Marcella Morris says:

        Are the troughs supposed to curl up a bit? I have already done about 8 rows and they curl up. Is this something only edging will fix? Also I know its mentioned he shows how to change colors in the third row but I only get 2 videos of the same thing…where he finishes the first 2 rows in the same green color. No color change… :(.

      4. TammyeHoney says:

        Your tension is too tight try to loosen it a bit or try a slightly larger hook that might help. He made a left handed version and a right handed version. To change colors you simply do part of your stitch then just prior to finishing the last stitch such as dc…yarn over, pull up loop, pull through two then take new color yarn and I make a slip knot and place on end of hook and pull through the last two so I have my beginning loop to start my next row…my email is [email protected] if you have any more questions.

      5. TammyeHoney says:

        let me work this pattern and make a video in slower motion with the color change for you in the next few days and I will post it for you. Please be patient with me as my filming is not the best yet.
