Another Crochet Ripple Blanket Finished

crochet ripple blanket

I love crochet ripple blankets! After making my first very colourful “rainbow” one, I made a second one with a lots of cream and various other left over bits of yarn. This blanket has a more standard colour palette, but one that I love and I think is really classic – red, navy and grey. In my head I started it as a “boy baby blanket” but it really could be for a girl too.

The ripple or chevron pattern is one that I learnt from Attic 24 – her tutorial is fantastic! I started this one when Mel started her RippleAlong over at One Crafty Mumma, so some of the progress was shared on Instagram and Facebook with that hashtag.

Some Vital Stats:

  • Yarn: Moda Vera Pure Wool, 100g balls, 8ply
  • 111cm x 106cm – about 44″ x 42″
  • Starting chain of about 145 stitches (sorry, didn’t count closely but that’s what it looks like!)
  • Each ripple is 5 triples plus 2 increasing, then 5 triples plus 2 decreasing.
  • There are 4 rows of each colour
  • I used about a ball and a half of each colour – 100g balls

    My crochet is very basic, but I must attempt a ripple blanket the next time I have a lovely stash of wool.

    Love this colour combo. I’m really crushing on navy at the moment. I’ve only been working on my cot sized one oh for about a year and a half now……..

    I love the colours of this blanket!
    I’ve tried this pattern a few times (started over 4x), and am having issues about 4 rows in. The mountains and valleys don’t line up as nicely and I’m pretty sure I haven’t added/dropped stitches.
    Do you have any advice?

      Hmmm… hard to know without seeing it but I’d suggest look carefully at where you turn at the end of each row. I find sometimes I get out stitch when I turn if I don’t crochet into the top of the right stitch as I start the next row. Also maybe check whether you are crocheting into the top of the stitches or into the gaps between stitches – that could throw the pattern out.
