Easy Baby Ripple

Couldn't wait for Spring to make this one! Bring on the warmer weather! Rows of ripple crochet in heavenly pastel colors help create a wonderful Spring-time crochet blanket, perfect for Easter! A combination of Caron Simply Soft and Bernat Satin yarns were used to design this crochet baby blanket pattern.

When I first started this blanket, I decided not to add anything contrasting such as an off-white or cream because the colors I chose alone just said EASTER to me! I worked on it every day for four days because I couldn't wait to see it finished!

H8/5mm Hook
3.5oz each of Purple, Blue, Green, and Pink. My blue and green were pastel colors while my pink and purple were just light.

Sizing Information:
Finished Size: 30" x 34"
Gauge unknown
Skill- Intermediate

Special Note: When making the dc2tog, please take special care in using either the next dc or the next ch1sp. It can be easy to miss the next ch1sp and to use a dc after thereby throwing the stitch pattern off for the next row,

ch 121
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, (dc2tog)x2, ch 1, (dc in next ch, ch 1)x5, *(dc2tog)x6, (dc in next ch, ch 1)x5. Repeat from * to the last 6 ch. (dc2tog)x3

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next dc (not in the space immediately below the ch 3), (dc2tog)x2, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc in next ch1sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1)x2, *(dc2tog)x6, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc in next ch1sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1)x2. Repeat from * to last two ch1sp. (dc2tog)x3, leave turning ch unworked.

Row 3: ch 3, dc in next dc, (dc2tog)x2, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc in next ch1sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1)x2, *(dc2tog)x6, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1, (dc in next ch1sp, ch 1, dc in next dc, ch 1)x2. Repeat from * to last two ch1sp. (dc2tog)x3, leave turning ch unworked.

Repeat row 3 until desired length! For the border, I loved having the ripple top and bottom so I just added a single crochet border to the sides to complete it.

  1. Pretty! Love the colors! It can be used for boys or girls! :)

  2. I see yellow, too. (Not sure if my first comment went through.)

  3. What is the multiplier to make this wider? It is quite lovely and I love the color combination but I need a wider throw

  4. Having trouble getting started. Pattern doesn't work out evenly starting with 121 chains. Foundation Row: Why isn't there a ch 1 after every group of five dc2tog, A ch1 is inserted after the first two dc2tog. In subsequent rows there is a ch1 after every dc2tog group - and there are 6 dc2tog in each group instead of 5. Can someone help me get going on this. I know I'll be fine once I get the pattern set up.

  5. Sara,
    I too am having issues as you did.. Can't seem to get started correctly. Did you ever get it figured out?

  6. Sara, I'm having similar issues starting, did you figure it out? I love this pattern, but have started it 4 times..can't figure what I'm doing wrong

  7. I think there is an error in the pattern. I started it numerous times as well.

  8. There must be an error because I'm having issues as well

  9. I have been on sabbatical from my website due to RL issues. Upon returning and revisiting comments and patterns, I have found there is indeed an error in the wording of this pattern.
    In row one, it's supposed to be *(dc2tog)x6, not x5.
    I pay for this website out of my own pocket and share my patterns FREE, so I won't always have time to moderate and make changes.
    I hope this helps you all.

    1. Thank you Shelly! We appreciate your patterns and understand if you weren't able to reply. Hope every hing works out for you :)
