Free Granny Ripple Shawl Pattern

I love that the crochet granny stitch can be used in such a variety of ways. I am so passionate about showcasing exactly what the traditional granny square can do – and even more so about how the granny stitch can be used in different easy crochet projects.

The granny ripple stitch can be used to create blankets, garments and so much more!

You can find the tutorial on how to crochet the traditional granny ripple by clicking here, but this stitch patten creates an uneven number of peaks and troughs.

This shawl pattern uses an amended stitch pattern, to ensure an even number of peaks and troughs are created in the chevron for a balanced look on the ends of the shawl.

You can then create beaded tassels to add to the edges and really highlight the peaks created with the ripple

The Inspiration behind the Design

I love to be cosy, and wrapped up against the cold! The Really, Really Wanna wrap started out as simply another way for me to encourage others to love the traditional granny stitch but turned into a project that challenged me as designer, and ending up as one of my all time favourite designs.

I wanted the ripples to be equal on both ends of the wrap to allow me to add extra detail in the form of a tassel (but also to prevent me getting annoyed with any possible imbalance in the design.

With a lot of practice and an awful lot of frogging, I was over the moon to make it happen and for the design to turn out how I imagined.

I also wanted to showcase the yarn I chose. Sirdar Jewelspun has been a firm favorite of mine since the yarn was released. The way the colours stand out in this design put such a smile on my face. Plus, to achieve colour changes like this without any ends to sew it really makes it the perfect yarn! 

Even if you wanted to use just 1 colour of yarn, I can be confident that your finished project would be stunning!
