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
