Classic Ripples Baby Blanket

January 2011
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
US 7 - 4.5 mm
This pattern is available for free.

Adapted from a washcloth pattern, this sweet blanket is my version of the classic baby ripple afghan. It’s the perfect work of heart for a hopechest or baby shower. The finished blanket is puffy and soft with its thick, rolling ridges, but lacy strips add a delicate touch. With a little math, you could easily adapt this pattern for other size blankets. Customize your look by playing with the stripe width and trying different color schemes. Easily memorized, the pattern is suitable for a beginner and affords great practice in the shaping techniques of yarn over and knit two together.

Please note: The yarn weights listed are approximate. If you use a no-dyelot yarn like Caron Simply Soft, you can estimate on the yardage and buy more if you need it. Otherwise, dig out your scraps and mix ‘n match; because the size and stripe width are flexible, you can use whatever combination of yarn you have on hand. Any soft worsted weight yarn will work.
