The Grandma Spiked My Ripple Blanket

The Grandma Spiked My Ripple Blanket is a pattern by Darlisa Riggs that you can find for free on Ravelry. (Thanks Darlisa!)

I’m one of those people that feels like the basic granny stitch looks old-fashioned and even boring, so I love when people come up with new and different applications of granny stitch patterns.

This pattern is gives the basic granny ripple a modern twist by making the middle double crochet in each triplet a spike stitch. It’s a relatively small adjustment, but it makes such a difference! The ripple ends up looking a little fuzzy, hence the name.

If you are like me and find the traditional granny stitch boring, or even if you love the granny stitch but are ready to try something just a little different, you should give this wonderful pattern a try!
