Color Blocked Ripple Blankets Are Easy to Make
I am a huge fan of color block blankets, and this one is no exception. This crochet ripple blanket is worked up with all different shades of blue yarn, which gives it a unique fading ombre effect.
The ripple stitch used for this crochet design is simple and works up fast once the first few rows of the blanket get completed.
The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Ripple Pattern
It all started a few weeks ago while yarn shopping at Michaels that I came across some beautiful colors from Lion Brands Vanna’s Choice line in some excellent blue & gray hues!
I originally went in to grab one skein for another project, but walked out with 7! The proof is in the picture! (See below)
There Is No Resisting These Yarn Colors!
I mean are they not just amazing! I knew they would look perfect as a ripple blanket with an ombre effect to it. Ombre means “the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving from light to dark.”

This crochet pattern (free of course!) is one of my favorite all-time designs, and I am so happy to share this fun easy ripple crochet blanket pattern with you!
How The Ripple Stitch in Crochet Is Made
I started my blanket with white working 15 rows and decreased the number of rows I made with each color added.
Also, the whole afghan uses the half double crochet stitch, which makes it a super quick pattern to work up. Overall I am in love with how it turned out, and I hope you love it too! <3
