Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch

The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch Is a Must Try

One look at this amazing stitch and I won’t have to try too hard to convince you to give it a try. The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch is simply amazing.

Why do I love it so much?

  • It works up lightning fast. Those triple trebles are over an inch tall!
  • It looks very advanced. You’ll impress anyone with these skills!
  • It has great texture. Tall stitches, raised stitches, wavy stitches…yes!
  • It’s perfect for color changes. The stitch has a perfect repeat for playing with color.

These are the main reasons I love the vintage fan ripple stitch. It has been around for decades and is a great way to take your crocheting skills up a notch.

Lets Give It a Try

In this tutorial we’re going to work up a test swatch. You’ll only need about 10 yards of 3 or 4 different color yarns. Anything in your stash will do.

I recommend working a swatch before diving into a complete project. This stitch uses the triple treble crochet that may be brand new to you and require a little practice to master the tension.

For this stitch pattern we’ll use the chain stitch, single crochet, slip stitch and the triple treble. I’ll show you how to work each individually in the tutorial!
