Ripple Blanket

There is something soothing about making a series of ripples in this crochet blanket. Sometimes you want a pattern that you don't have to pay too close attention to so you can concentrate on other things. (Gilmore Girls anyone?) 




And when your finished, it is a perfect gift for a brand new baby boy. So here's what I did:


Yarn: Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee Soft Secret. One skein per color. For about a 36x36 inches blanket
Hook: Size H
Pattern: US terms


Work a multiple of 10 chains to however wide you'd like your blanket. I usually go about 32 to 36 inches wide and about that high.

Chain 3 extra chains

Start with white yarn. (Your choice obviously, but that's what I did for this blanket)

Row 1: dc into 4th chain from hook. 1 dc into each of the next 3 cha, *dc3tog, 1 dc into each of next 3 cha, 3 dc into next ch, 1 dc into each of next 3 chs; repeat from * to last ch, 2 dc into last ch, turn.


Row 2: Ch 3, 1 dc into same st, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc, *dc3together, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc, 3 dc into next dc, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc; repeat from * to last st, 2 dc into 3rd of beg skipped ch-3 turn.

Row 3: ch 3, 1 dc into same st, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc, *dc3tog, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc, 3 dc into next dc, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc; repeat from *to last st, 2 dc into 3rd of ch-3, turn.

Border: Start with the white yarn and single crochet around the whole blanket in each dc on the ends, and two single crochet's per double crochet on the sides. Change colors each round.

Finished!

So after doing this for awhile, you'll realize everything is a series of threes except the ends, which are 5 dc on each side. I like putting white in between each color change but obviously you are free to choose what ever color you'd like.

I'd love you try a girl version in light blue, navy blue, coral, peach and white. If I find the colors I want in the soft secret brand, I just might try it!

Good luck! Tag me on INSTAGRAM if you finish your blanket! I'd love to see!! @daisyfarmcrafts OR use the hashtag #daisyfarmcrafts
