Sundance Granny Ripple Stitch Blanket

This “Sundance Throw” is FULL of gorgeous, happy color, and I’m loving it for the spring and summer months (well, any month really)! It is such an easy stitch repeat, and there are no color changes. Yay! Read on…

See the full free crochet pattern below, or you may choose to purchase the ad-free printable from my Etsy shop HERE or the kit from Lion Brand Yarn HERE.

This light blanket is super useful and will turn heads no doubt. And it’s just happy. Love it!

If you follow me, you know that I like simple, but I also get bored easily. There’s no getting bored with this pattern because it keeps you waiting for the next color change yet it’s easy enough to make while you’re watching for fave show.

I’d say it’s simple enough for adventurous beginners as long as you check out the stitch tutorial below. Also, look at a few granny ripple stitch videos on Youtube. But it’s a no-no for brand new baby beginners. 🙂

LOOK at all this color…..

Wait for it……

COLOR! By using three colorways you get a ton of color, but it’s totally customizable. You know I’m also a sucker for a good solid cream classic too. 🙂

There were questions about what colorway was used in some of my sneak peeks on social media, and as you now know, it’s not just one. The trick is to use the three that go together to get a lot of color. 🙂

The granny ripple stitch used in this pattern is cool because it has a vintage yet modern feel to it, and it’s a good lightweight option for warmer months or climates.

All these granny stitches have come roaring back into style which is awesome, right? You might remember the Nora Granny Square Blanket, Magnolia Tote Bag, Endless Eyelets Cardigan, all featuring fun colors and a variation of granny stitch.

I feel like this one definitely has a boho vibe with the fringe and the festive colors. Between the colors and the stitches, it’s just a fun little blanket.

Want to wander into the woods with a handmade blanket? Me too haha! The boho vibe is what really stands out with this one.

I’ve shared how to crochet the granny ripple stitch below with a little picture tutorial, so definitely check that out (scroll on down to the end of the pattern). Check out my suggestions in the “Notes” section of the pattern about crocheting a practice swatch first so you can iron out any issues before you start on your big blanket!

OH! And you can easily make this blanket any size you like! I’ve included notes on how to adjust the stitch count so you can customize the width. Then you simply crochet for as long as you want it to be!

What Yarn do I Use For This Granny Ripple Stitch Blanket?

Here’s the fun part. You can use any worsted weight or lightweight yarn that you like! I used three separate colorways of Lion Brand Mandala so that there is a TON of color. It’s so nice because you just work through each skein of yarn. No color changes, no weaving in ends, and lots of fun stripes. Have fun and get creative when you’re choosing your colors!

Take this blanket on all your summer adventures. Oh summer dreaming.

  1. Jessica,
    I have a question. I love to crochet the Granny Stitch, but generally knit things, because in crochet, I have a terrible time keeping my edges straight. Do you have a video lesson on that perhaps?
    Thanks.

    I really do like your items and am doing the ‘Billowy Quilted Throw Blanket” right now. I like the pattern, but made the mistake of using a varigated/ombre color yarn which doesn’t allow the ‘pattern’ to show so clearly. It’s still pretty.
