I have been dreaming about designing a smaller version of my Neutral Crochet Chevron pattern (find it “HERE“) and this little beauty of a ripple blanket was the result.
When I worked up this blanket I wrote it to be the perfect size for a baby / stroller blanket, but it can be easily adjusted with the directions provided below. I would love to see it made in a different size so please do try it and share it with me! 🙂 I love unlimited color choices with my projects so I went straight to my favorite Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice and chose the colors Mustard & Linen. Most any color scheme would look great with this blanket so have fun and be creative with it! 🙂
I promise you can crochet this even if you are a beginner! So, if you are ready to try out this fun pattern scroll on down to find the free pattern or you can Click here to purchase an inexpensive, ad- free PDF in my pattern shop. Happy Crocheting!
