The Vintage Fan Ripple stitch is a beautiful crochet stitch that is striking when worked in one colour or many!
The stitch pattern presents itself as a ripple stitch and it is created by working rows of single crochet stitches interspersed between groups of triple treble crochet stitches.
The triple treble stitches are tall! In the triple stitch, you will yarn over twice before working the loops off the hook. In the Double treble stitch you will yarn over three times before working the loops off the hook. In the triple treble stitch you will yarn over four times before working the loops off your hook. It is a lot of yarning over! The result is the beautiful tall stitches that you find in the vintage fan ripple.

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Cotton Aran by Paintbox Yarns. It is an aran weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm Wooden Streamline hook by Furls Crochet. However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.
You will find a free video tutorial at the bottom of this post following the written instruction!
The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch:
This stitch is worked in rows in this tutorial.
To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains. For this stitch pattern you will need to chain a multiple of nine stitches for your foundation chain plus one.
Single crochet into the second chain from your hook and into each of the next three chain stitches, * work three single crochet into the next chain, single crochet into each of the next eight chains.
Repeat from * across to the final four stitches, single crochet into each of the final four stitches.
Chain one and turn your work.
Skip the first stitch and single crochet into each of the next four stitches. * Work three single crochet into the next stitch, single crochet into each of the next four stitches, skip the next two stitches, single crochet into each of the next four stitches.
Repeat from * across to the final four stitches. Single crochet into each of the next three stitches, single crochet two together in the final two stitches.
Chain one and turn.
Repeat row two. Chain one and turn.
Slip stitch into each of the first three stitches, chain six (this counts as a triple treble stitch). Triple Treble into each of the next two stitches.
* Work three triple treble stitches into the next stitch, one triple treble into each of the next three stitches. Skip the next four stitches, work one triple treble stitches into each of the next three stitches.
Repeat from * across ending with one triple treble in each of the next three stitches, turn, leaving the remaining stitches unworked.
If you would like to change colour, change in the final stitch.
And that’s it!
For the rest of the pattern repeat rows one to four. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
