Easy Crochet Ripple Blanket

One of my nieces is having a baby boy soon and of course I had to carry on my baby blanket tradition. I wanted to make her a blanket that I haven’t made before and since ripple blankets are all the rage right now I decided to try my hand at one. I hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy Crocheting!

  3. I love this pattern!! If I wanted to make a bigger afghan (for a elementary aged boy) How many stitches would I add to the chain and how many extra skeins should I buy? Thank you for your free patterns!!

    1. Thanks Kim! TO make a larger blanket, you would need to chain a larger multiple of 14 and then add 3 to the foundation chain. For my afghan I used about 6 skeins of yarn but it would really depend on how big of an afghan you are making.

  4. What other kind of yarn would you suggest other than cotton ease? I’m excited to make this but don’t have neough cotton yarn, I have Caron Simply soft ( tons of it lol)
    Thanks!

  5. Love the ripple baby blanket, but most of all I love the colors you pick for your projects. Have never seen one I didn’t like immediately. Some patterns on other sites are great, but you need to work your way past the awful colors in the illustration.

  6. I just love this blanket. It is my favorite of the bunch and just looks so plush. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a simple ripple!

  7. So glad to find this pattern from following contest links! I need a simple blanket for two families expecting, and as I’m still a beginner, four stitches is about my limit. And, I have enough yarn!

  8. Thanks for sharing! When I saw that you adapted Lucy’s (Attic 24) pattern, I got a big smile on my face…love her work. You’ve done a great job & like your changes; 3-d ripples look great. Thanks again 🙂

    Thanks

    1. Hi Marie. If you look at the post, it gives a link to the original pattern that I adapted. You will find the directions for how to start on that page and my modifications in my post.

  11. I love this pattern! I love your colors so much that I’m making one right now with the same colors. I always pick my own colors, but I loved the bright, frsh combination. Thank you for sharing!
