Ripple Waves Baby Blanket -FREE CROCHET PATTERN

Ripple Waves Baby blanket-Pink

A few of years ago, I was asked to make a baby blanket using the colours black, grey and white. Since these are colours you don’t originally associate with a baby, I was unsure on what to do. I had a look around to see what pattern/design would work best for these colours and I seen somebody that had done a wave blanket in different coloured pinks. I thought a wave design would look great in the chosen colours. I couldn’t find a pattern the right wavy-ness or in the size I wanted, so I decided to write one myself. It took a lot of tries to get right but once I did, it turned into a lovely pattern and the colours looked amazing together. I have made many more of these blankets over the years in many different colours and they’ve all turned out beautifully.

MATERIALS:

  • 4mm Hook
  • DK yarn in desired colours

ABBREVIATIONS:
DC- Double crochet
INC- Increase (2 double crochet in single stitch)
DEC- Decrease (Double crochet 2 stitches together)
F/O- Fasten Off
CH- Chain
ST- Stitch

BEFORE YOU START:
– Finished blanket size is approximately 29 x 22 inches
– Blanket could be made using thicker wool if you use the corresponding hook size. This would make the blanket bigger than the measurements given above.
– Gauge isn’t overly important, as long as you keep the tension the same throughout the whole blanket.

( The Blanket can be made into a dolls blanket by chaining 73 at the beginning of the pattern and then following the pattern the same way..This makes a blanket of approximately 24 x18 inches.)

Hi, Welcome to MyBelle Creations. I taught myself to crochet around 5 years ago and really enjoyed it. Over the years I have made many different types of items, my favourites being my ‘geeky’ items such as the Labyrinth movie characters and Dungeons and dragons items. I have enjoyed making and sharing my patterns and finished items. Since my children have gone back to school full time, from being home school during the covid-19 lockdowns, I have decided to start a new way of sharing my patterns and items.

  1. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi, sorry for the delay in replying, your comment has only just sent a notification to me. I have started with WordPress.com as it seemed simple and easy to use when i’m first starting off and I have also read its easier to move a wordpress blog to another platform when ready than most others. I am only just starting off too, so learning as I go along. Good luck with your blog and send me a link when you are up and running 🙂 always love reading other peoples blogs 🙂 x
