Inherited Afghans anyone recognize the pattern
I inherited a few afghans and would like to knit one but no pattern. Does anyone recognize or know the patterns?

Zigzag one looks like it's a generic crocheted zigzag pattern, but I'm not sure about the green one.

The green looks like the candle flame stitch, the zig zag is crochet and is called a ripple . It involves crocheting a chain and skipping one or two stitches to make the valley holes

I appreciated each of you taking a look at my post/pictures and lord knows I am not very experienced at this - plus I know nothing of crochet. I am confused now for sure because I thought the ribble looked like knitting/purling.
Thanks so much for your insight into my inquiry.

Thanks for the closeup, you're right it is knitted. It's a ripple or chevron pattern with YOs instead of closed increases.

Yep, the closeup made the difference. Here's one, but there are are more patterns out there.

You can also get similar stitch patterns at several pattern directories. But of course they won't match exactly:

I recognize the pattern. I'm pretty sure it's the same and very easy, and a quick knit to do. It's called the 'Envelope Afghan" because it was written and sent on the back of an envelope. It's pretty old. The only reason there's a link at all is because somebody designed some vertical stripes for it. It was given to me from someone on Ravelry.

It has only 3 rows that are repeated and two of those are just K across and P across. Only the first row has any directions and you'll need just K,P,yo and K2tog. skills to do it.

My link, VickiDesigns doesn't respond. Maybe somebody who's on Ravelry can put the link and pictures on for you if it's still available.

Happy knitting. Jean

It's from the knitlist mailing list, but the pages for their archives aren't working and I can't even get into it using the wayback machine.

Thank you so much ladies for your help and advice. I am sorry I am late in getting back - had to buy a new computer. What a wealth of information and kindness. Again, thanks.
