Simple Neutral Ripple Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

I’m so excited to share this blanket pattern! A friend of mine is having baby #4 and I just had to make her something special. The pattern for this blanket is a super simple ripple. I also left the color scheme neutral because they are not finding out the baby’s gender until the birth. I was so happy that my friend loved the blanket and I am happy to be able to share the pattern with you. Scroll down for the free pattern for the Simple Neutral Ripple Blanket. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Crocheting!
