INSTRUCTIONS

CROCHET BABY BLANKET

STRIPE SEQUENCE

In Ripple pattern, work 2 rows A, * 2 rows B, 2 rows C, 2 rows D, 2 rows A; repeat from * for length of Afghan.

 

SPECIAL TECHNIQUE

Changing Colors: Work across to last st, insert hook in last st and pull up a loop – 2 loops on hook), drop color used for this row, with next color in Stripe Sequence, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook to complete sc.

 

Ripple Pattern (multiple of 13 sts + 4)

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook, sc in next ch, skip 1 ch (edge sts), * sc in next 5 ch, work 3 sc in next ch, sc in next 5 ch, + skip 2 ch; repeat from * across, end last repeat at + skip 1 ch, sc in last 2 ch, turn.

Row 2: Ch 1,working through the back loop only of each st, sc in first 2 sts, skip 1 st, * sc in next 5 sts, work 3 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, skip 2 sts; repeat from * 9 times, end sc in next 5 sts, work 3 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, skip 1 st, sc in last 2 sts. 

Repeat Row 2, following Stripe Sequence, for Ripple patt.

 

AFGHAN

Using A, loosely chain 148.

Begin Ripple patt; work Row 1—147 sts.

Work even in Stripe Sequence, repeating Row 2 of Ripple patt, until color C has been completely used, ending with 2 rows A—piece measures approximately 36".

Fasten off.

FINISHING

Using yarn needle, weave in ends.

Blocking

Pin piece to measurements; spray with warm water and let dry.

Hint: Use a small amount of Fabric Softener or Hair Conditioner in the water – it will make the Afghan softer. 

 

 

KNIT BABY BLANKET

 

k1-f/b (increase): Knit next st, then knit it through the back loop.

 

STRIPE SEQUENCE

In Ripple pattern, work 4 rows A, * 4 rows B, 4 rows C, 4 rows D, 4 rows A; repeat from *

for length of Afghan.

 

STITCHES USED

Ripple Pattern (multiple of 16 sts + 2 edge sts)

Rows 1 and 3: Knit.

Rows 2 and 4: K1 (edge st), * k2tog, k5, k1-f/b, place a marker (pm), k1-f/b, k5, k2tog; repeat from * across to last st, end k1 (edge st).

Repeat Rows 1 – 4 in Stripe Sequence for Ripple patt.

 

NOTE

Ripple pattern worked in Garter stitch looks the same on both sides, making the Afghan reversible.

 

HELPFUL 
Markers are placed at the center of the peak of each multiple when beginning the pattern; these may be removed after a few rows, if desired.

 

AFGHAN

Using A, cast on 146 sts.

Begin Ripple patt; work even until piece measures 38", or desired length from beginning, ending with 4 rows of A.

 

FINISHING

Using yarn needle, weave in ends.

Blocking

Pin piece to measurements; spray with warm water and let dry.

Hint: Use a small amount of Fabric Softener or Hair Conditioner in the water – it will make the Afghan softer.
