Ripple Blanket

A lot of crocheters have their go to blanket that they make when they need something done quick and easy. This is mine. I have made this blanket about 4 times in the last 2 years! I can not take credit for the pattern, My friend Jennifer Williams shared this with me when I was looking to branch out from doing granny squares. Thanks Jennifer for providing me with one of my favorite patterns!

Now, how to make it.

Ripple blanket for Sky

Materials:

Worsted weight yarn
I usually use an I hook. If you want the blanket bigger or smaller just use a bigger or smaller hook.

Chain 118


DC in third ch from hook (your two ch count as 1 DC) DC in next 5 chs (total of 7 DC including the first 2 chs) *In next ch, DC CH1 DC (this is the peak) DC in next 7 Chs. Skip the next 2 CHS. DC in next 7 CHS* Repeat from * until you make your last peak. After you make the last peak DC in next 6 Chs, Skip the next CH, DC in last stitch for a total 7.

Next Row:

CH 2, Turn. Skip a stitch, DC in next 6 stitches. Then DC CH1 DC in CH1 stitch. Then repeat the pattern like before. After you make the last peak DC in next 6 stitches, skip one DC in last stitch, CH 2 turn and repeat.

Repeat the second row until you have the length you desire.

  2. I've started this blanket twice now (got 3 rows in, trotted, restarted) and in the first row I'm STILL short a stitch. After I make the last peak, I stitch 6 DC and I only have 1 CH SP left. I chained the initial 118 and I've had 3 different people count my stitches. Is there a typo? Maybe CH 119?

  3. That's happened to me before when I made it. There's not a typo, I just made this blanket myself in garnet and gold. Just don't skip a stitch and keep going. That's what I've done in the past and it turned out fine! Good luck!
