Stitches Used in the Crochet Ripple Baby Blanket

This easy ripple stitch blanket is made using the double crochet ripple stitch. The ripple stitch gives a smooth wavy pattern by using different double crochet stitches.

I didn’t add a border to this ripple blanket in order to keep it accessible to most levels of crocheters. While it’s marked as an easy pattern, I do think adventurous beginners could tackle this especially after practicing with the Ripple Stitch Tutorial. Just be sure you fully understand how to count your stitches, crochet 2 stitches in the same stitch, and double crochet 2 together.

Yarn Used in the Crochet Baby Blanket Ripple Pattern

I loved using the Premier Everyday Bobbins. Not only is it great yarn to work with, just like their regular Everyday Anti-Pilling Yarn, but also the color combos are already planned out for you.

The yarn itself is light plied which makes it extra soft and flowy. I was wishing I had made a full-size crochet afghan instead of a baby ripple afghan.

This ripple crochet baby blanket took less than 2 bobbins to make. It was nice to just be able to carry a bobbin in my crochet project bag instead of trying to tote around multiple skeins of yarn.

Abbreviations:

ch(s): chain(s)
dc(s): double crochet(s)
dc2tog: double crochet 2 together
st(s): stitch(es)
[ ]: repeat instruction in the brackets the specified number of times

Gauge: 4”x 4” = 18 dc by 8 rows (take in ripple stitch pattern)

Finished Size: approximately 29” x 36”

Notes:

This pattern is written using chain 2 at the beginning of each row.

The chain 2 counts as a double crochet.

If you prefer chaining 3 for rows of double crochets, you’ll want to start with a foundation chain of any multiple of 12 +3.

I started with the darkest shade (Color A) on the bobbin then used the marled shade (Color B) and finally the lightest shade (Color C). You, of course, can use the colors in whatever order you’d like!
