Featuring chunky yarn, this blanket exudes vintage vibes and a cozy feel with feminine yet bold stitches. The understated ripples echo back to antique throws, but the modern striping and chunky stitches speak to today’s modern look. The stitch pattern is simple and the blanket works up quickly with a large hook!

Notes: This blanket is completely reversible and looks the same on both sides! Consider carrying the grey yarn up the side to avoid weaving in those ends. You may want to practice the pattern on a small swatch before beginning. Simply chain 23 and work the pattern as written to ensure it’s turning out correctly.

Size: 36” x 66” Blanket length can easily be adjusted by crocheting for more or fewer rows. This blanket was crocheted loosely. If you’re not getting the width you’d like, adjust your hook to a larger size or add more stitches to your beginning chain. In order to adjust width, make your chain longer or shorter while keeping a multiple 10 + 3 extra stitches.
