|Single Crochet in back loop only to get these ridges.|
The colors for this blanket are heavenly. Perfect for a new baby boy or girl. I used “I Love This Cotton” brand of yarn from Hobby Lobby with a size H hook. I like a pointy chevron peak so here is a version of a simple pattern I tweaked a bit to achieve this look.
5 Skeins I Love This Cotton in Mint, and Dove
7 Skeins I Love This Cotton in White
Size H hook
(see bottom of page for abbreviation guide)
Start by chaining 177, Single Crochet in the BACK loop always to achieve this look.
(EDIT) for a larger blanket the pattern repeat is 29 + 3.
Beginning in the 2nd chain from hook, SC2TOG, SC in next 13 CH, 3 SC in next CH, *SC in next 13 CH, SC2TOG in the last 2 CH. 6 ripples
ROW 2: CH 1, turn, SC2TOG, SC in the next 13, 3 SC in next SC, *SC in the next 13 SC, SK nest 2 SC, SC in next 13 SC, 3 SC in next SC; rep from * across to last 2 SC, SC2TOG.
ROW 3 and 4: Rep Row 2, 2 more times and then change colors.
I changed colors after every 4th row of that color. I also put white in between each color change. You may make the color blocks as you wish.
I now have a video to help you get this blanket started. I am using different yarn, but the pattern is still the same.
