Easy Baby Ripple

UPDATED: Error in row 1, changed 3/10/2016

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.

Easy Baby Ripple - Missed Stitches

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!

Easy Baby Ripple - Missed Stitches

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,

Pattern Instructions:
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. Having same problems. So frustrating when people dont reply. Will find a different pattern me thinks

  10. 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 :)

    2. Thanks can't wait to make it

  11. Shelly, I love ths afgan, I have a grandbaby due in April of next year. I will make this baby afgan for her. I can no waittill I get it finished, and I will post a picture of t f I can.

  12. Thank you for this pattern. I can't wait to try to make this.I am gonna be a grandma for the first time ( my very first granbaby) and I want to make this for him/her .

Perfect Pot Holders: Free Crochet Pattern

Perfect Pot Holders

When it comes to crocheting practical items, potholders are a popular go-to! Make these simple crochet potholders using my easy pattern! I make mine double-thick using the overcasting stitch. Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.

Ch 27 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc in each ch across. Ch 1, turn
Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn

Row 3: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece is square. Make two and then using a steel yarn needle and the same yarn used for making them, combine them using an overcasting stitch.


A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.

There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket. The slanted double crochet clusters make for a weighted blanket with soft bobbles. At first glance, the blanket seems complex but it's really super easy! Make one in beautiful baby blues or choose your own color palette!

I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!

Create this light-weight, wonderful crochet blanket in a matter of hours! Slanted shell clusters with small blocks of double crochets in a lacy form make this a super easy blanket to whip up! Use it was a great tummy-time blanket or make it longer for the perfect lounge chair lapghan on a cool Summer night! You can make it in the colors shown here, or use your favorite "cake" yarn for non-stop crocheting fun!

Supplies: Hook Size: 5.00mm 1.5 skeins each of pink, green and cream I used Bernat Satin Yarn in Fern and Flamingo mixed with Caron Simply Soft Off-White
OR make it with Red Heart! I recommend **Red Heart Super Saver Sage, Perfect Pink and Aran.
