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.
I wrote it to be the perfect size for a baby / stroller blanket, but it can be easily adjusted with the directions provided below.
When designing this piece I went straight to my favorite Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice and chose the colors Mustard & Linen. When crocheting this blanket you don’t have to use these particular colors.
Feel free to have fun with the colors and whatever color you pick will be perfect for you. Scroll on down for the full, free pattern or…
