Sweet Knit Ripple Baby Blanket

6:00:00 AM

It seems like quite a few folks I know are having babies. I love making handmade gifts for them...especially knit baby blankets. Most knit baby blankets are simple patterns, highly repetitive, and easy to complete quickly because they are small. This ripple baby blanket is based on Purl Bee's Chevron's Baby Blanket, but has a more traditional pattern in how the stripes repeat.


I followed the Purl Bee's pattern except I was using a lighter weight yarn (a baby weight yarn--Bernat Baby), so I doubled up the yarn, holding 2 strands together. You can get the 2 rows that make up the pattern at Purl Bee.

Here's the striping pattern that I used instead:

Cast on 100 stitches
6 rows Pink
8 rows Green
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
4 rows White
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
8 rows Green
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
4 rows White
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
8 rows Green
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
4 rows White
6 rows Pink
4 rows Gray
6 rows Pink
8 rows Green
6 rows Pink
Cast off.


I love the texture of this baby blanket! It is so soft and yet the knit stitch adds interest. I know that the little one that gets this will be nice and cozy when she comes!


Enjoy!
