V-Stitch Crochet Ripple Afghan Pattern

V-Stitch Crochet Ripple Afghan Pattern

It’s afghan season so of course I wanted to get stitchin’ on something cozy for curling up with on these chilly Autumn evenings! I decided to put a contemporary twist on an old classic with this ripple afghan pattern. Here I used V-stitches to created a more lacy, open design to the traditional ripple. You can find the matching pillow pattern here 🙂

V-Stitch Crochet Ripple Afghan Pattern

V-Stitch Crochet Ripple Afghan PatternHere’s what you need:

  • 5 coordinating colors of bulky weight yarn, approx. 2 skeins (272 yards) of each
  • K hook
  • tapestry needle, scissors

Click here to reference Crochet Abbreviations or here to reference Crochet Stitch Symbols.

Finished afghan measures approximately 50 in. × 64 in.

The size of the blanket can be easily customized by changing the length of the beginning chain. Chain a multiple of 26 + 4 stitches.

    Love, love, love the color scheme! Ripple afghans always fill me with good memories. My grandmother’s home was never without one for each chair, sofa and bed. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Corinne October 20, 2014 at 10:13 am #

    What a lovely blanket, I love the colours you have chosen, they work really well together, I always struggle with that part of blanket making! Would you mind me asking what yarn you used and what colours too please?
    Many thanks. Corinne

  6. Shelby October 20, 2014 at 11:57 pm #

    would you be interested in selling this quilt ??

  7. Debbie Zwahr October 21, 2014 at 10:27 am #

    What colors are used on the V-Stitch Ripple Afghan? Those colors look amazing together!!!

  8. Marilyn October 21, 2014 at 11:11 am #

    Kara, the colors you selected for your afghan are absolutely stunning! You have a wonderful eye for color and design!

  9. Havok October 24, 2014 at 5:29 am #

    Thank you for the pattern! I’m tired of granny square blankets, and this looks like a good new project!

  10. Kerri November 5, 2014 at 11:16 pm #

    So lovely. This pattern is a wonderful tribute to all the afghans I remember my grandmother making.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Kara November 6, 2014 at 12:44 pm #

      Awww … so glad you like it 🙂

  11. Rara November 8, 2014 at 11:14 pm #

    I’m 4 rows in and the patterns seems to be doing a wavy look to it and not a dramatic V as I was hoping for as seen on the photos you’ve provided. Can you help me please. Will it work it’s way as I work along? When I block it is that when this effect happens?

    • Kara November 10, 2014 at 5:10 pm #

      Hi Rara 🙂

      I am sorry you are having trouble. Sometimes it does take quite a few rows to see how a pattern is coming out. When you lay it out flat are you see a ripple effect at all?

  12. Jan November 14, 2014 at 6:37 pm #

    Kara
    I am making the v-stitch crochet ripple afghan and am having a hard time getting the end straight. It is veering inward. Is that how it should happen?

    • Kara November 15, 2014 at 8:24 pm #

      Hi Jan 🙂 Are you certain you aren’t missing stitches at the beginning or the end of the rows?

      • Jan November 16, 2014 at 9:39 am #

        no I am not sure some times I get to stitching and don’t pay attention to where I am at so I will go back and count the three rows I have done. Thanks for your reply. I will get back to you and let you know if that was it. I also add more to the chain to make it wider and it was the right amount of chains so I was proud of myself for that part.

  13. Audra December 1, 2014 at 2:54 am #

    Which colors or which brands did you use? I ALWAYS Have trouble with color selections. I hope you don’t mind?!?!

  14. Mary December 9, 2014 at 7:38 am #

    Can this beautiful afghan be made with worested weight yarn

  15. Chrisi January 7, 2015 at 7:04 am #

    Love this! Do you have trouble with your tails staying tucked? I made a baby blanket using the V stitch. I love it, but my tails keep popping out. I tie and then tuck my tails. I would love to try this pattern, but am afraid I would have the same problem. Any tips?

  16. Alexandra March 28, 2015 at 5:24 pm #

    I have had the post for this blanket pattern sitting in my inbox since it came out. Today, I am revisiting it and pinning. It is such a lovely mix of colors and beautiful pattern. Though it is an oldie, it is a goodie! I would love if you shared it at our Yarn Fanatic Linky Party – http://eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/2015/03/yarn-fanatic-linky-party-29.html

  17. Carla Besser April 5, 2015 at 9:09 pm #

    I LOVE this pattern, but seem to be having difficulty understanding the directions – my fault – not yours! Is there a video tutorial, I can’t seem to find one – do you know of any?

  18. Christa April 18, 2015 at 9:55 am #

    I loved using your pattern!!! Thank you so much! I want to straighten the ‘pointed’ edge …… Do you perhaps have any ideas on how to do this?

    • Kara April 21, 2015 at 9:22 pm #

      I am so glad you liked it Christa 🙂 I don’t have a pattern already written up for how to do that for this, but you may be able to google and see if others might.

      • Meredith April 25, 2015 at 10:50 am #

        I love this pattern!! I just got started a couple of days ago and so far so good! Thanks for sharing the “recipe” (as my mother-in-law calls it)!!

        • Kara April 27, 2015 at 10:39 am #

          My pleasure! Hope you enjoy making it 🙂

  19. MONIE July 16, 2015 at 9:03 pm #

    Hi I want to crochet a similar pattern but struggling with both I can’t seem to undestand the space gap where skip 2 chains dcdec chn 1 dcdec v stch. So if this is correct on 2nd row where do the v stchs go into spaces of skip 2 chns or ontop of the foundation v stchs? I’ve been frogging this afghan do to pattern not looking correct for some reason. Any help its appreciated.

  20. rose August 17, 2015 at 3:54 pm #

    Do you have a video tutorial for this stitch. I work better watching someone else and doing it with them.

  21. Anne January 7, 2016 at 11:25 am #

    What yarn is this? Is there a difference in chunky and bulky?

    • Kara January 14, 2016 at 6:15 pm #

      Hi Anne 🙂 I used Knit Picks Brava Bulky yarn for this project. Sometimes bulky and chunky are used interchangeably, so just make sure the label is weight #5 for this project.

  22. Marilyn January 26, 2016 at 1:49 pm #

    I only want to use 2 colors an the ya bernat blanket, chenille yarn, bulky, any advice?? thank you

  23. Sue March 25, 2016 at 2:27 am #

    Like everyone else I LOVE the color combination. I woud never have thought that they would be so lovely together. Thank you for sharing.

  24. Jackie Markley May 24, 2016 at 4:23 pm #

    I found the instructions awkward to understand,to many ** and++ a video would be good some people work better when they can see how to do the pattern
