Ripple blanket Ta-da!


Ah, look at the beautiful waves...

Calming ripples of white, soft grey and pale blue. I love this blanket. I am so pleased with it and proud to be able to show it to you today. 



I made this ripple blanket for a special new friend of mine in Dubai. Francesca has just had her first baby, a very cute baby boy called Lucas. She had a bit of a traumatic time at the birth but is doing really well now and Lucas is so handsome! 

I enjoyed making this blanket a lot, as its repetitiveness was relaxing to do and i love the soft, muted colours together, absolutely perfect for a lovely baby boy!



Here is the pattern for the ripple blanket in case you fancy having a go yourself, or contact me and i will make one for you! 

To start, chain multiples of 14, plus 3 for turning.

Foundation Row:
1 tr into 4th chain from hook, 1tr into each of next 4 chs, tr2tog, tr2tog, 1 tr into each of next 4 chs, *2tr into next ch, 2 tr into next ch, 1tr into each of next 4 chs, tr2tog, tr2tog, 1 tr into each of next 4 chs*
Repeat between * and * ending last rep with 2 tr into last chain, turn.

ROW 1:
ch3, 1 tr into same stitch, 1tr into each of next 4 chs, tr2tog, tr2tog, 1 tr into each of next 4 chs,
*2tr into next ch, 2 tr into next ch, 1tr into each of next 4 chs, tr2tog, tr2tog, 1 tr into each of next 4 chs*
Repeat between * and * ending last rep with 2 tr into the top chain of the chain-3 from previous row.
Repeat row 1 until the blanket is the length you would like it to be.
