There is something soothing about making a series of ripples in this crochet blanket. Sometimes you want a pattern that you don’t have to pay too close attention to so you can concentrate on other things.
And when your finished, it is a perfect gift for a brand new baby boy.
Yarn: Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee Soft Secret. One skein per color. For about a 36×36 inches blanket
Hook: Size H
Chain 126 with white. (To make this blanket larger or smaller use the pattern repeat of 3 x any odd number plus 3)
Row 1: DC into 4th chain from hook. 1 DC into each of the next 3 CH, *DC3TOG across the next 3 CH, 1 DC into each of next 3 CH, 3 DC into next CH, 1 DC into each of next 3 CHs; repeat from * across the row, 2 DC into last CH, CH 3 and turn. (You should have one extra chain at the end of the row to work the 2 DC.)
Row 2: 1 DC into the first stitch, 1 DC into each of next 3 sts, *DC3TOG across the next 3 sts, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC, 3 DC into next DC, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC; repeat from * to last ST, 2 DC into top of the turning CH 3. CH 3 and turn.
Row 3: 1 DC into the first st, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC, *DC3TOG across the next 3 sts, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC, 3 DC into next DC, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC; repeat from *to last ST, 2 DC into top of the turning CH 3. CH 3 and turn.
For all remaining rows Repeat row 3. Also, change colors every 3 rows.
Border: Start with the white yarn and single crochet around the whole blanket in each dc on the ends, and two single crochet’s per double crochet on the sides. Change colors after each round. Work 3 rounds.
So after doing this for awhile, you’ll realize everything is a series of threes except the ends, which are 5 DC on each side. I like putting white in between each color change but obviously you are free to choose what ever color you’d like.
I’d love to try a girl version in light blue, navy blue, coral, peach and white. If I find the colors I want in the soft secret brand, I just might try it!
