Ribbed Ripple Stitch Blanket

RiBBED RIPPLE STITCH BLANKET

There are many many many ripple stitch blanket patterns out there in the yarn-o-sphere – I do not for a second pretend that there is anything unique or original about this design, LOL, and if you need video assistance, you can definitely find plenty on you tube!  But what I love about a ripple stitch is that it’s simple, and easy for anyone from beginner to well seasoned crocheter, and when paired with a self striping yarn like Caron Cakes, you really can’t go wrong.  I’ve made two of these blankets, and there was so much interest in them on my instagthat I decided to share with you all, the pattern I’ve been using.

Supplies Needed:

Hook Size:  5mm
Yarn:  Caron Cakes

** How many skeins will depend on the size and length of your blanket.  For my blanket, I used about 6 skeins, and used the extra to make poms for the corners.

**The colorways I used for my blankets were:
Blueberry Kiwi
Pumpkin Spice

Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends
Scissors

Finished dimensions:  40″ x 40″ approximately – gauge is not important, just make sure you pick up extra yarn if you make your foundation chain larger than what’s outlined for this pattern.  Blanket is meant to be a small throw size.

NOTE:  You can make your blanket larger or smaller by chaining in multiples of 14 +3

Row 1 – Dc in 3rd ch from hook, *dc in next 4 sts, dec twice over next 4 sts, dc in next 4 sts, inc in next 2 sts.  Repeat from * all the way across your foundation chain – ending with 2 dc in final st.  Ch 3 and turn.

Row 2 to Desired LengthFrom here on out, all dc’s are to be worked in the blo – this is what gives your blanket that ribbed effect.  Dc in 3rd ch from hook, *dc in next 4 sts, dec twice over next 4 sts, dc in next 4 sts, inc in next 2 sts.  Repeat from * all the way across your foundation chain – ending with 2 dc in final st.  Ch 3 and turn.

Finishing Details and Other Notes

After my blanket was complete, I contemplated adding a border, but eventually settled on just adding a giant pom to each corner with the left over yarn I had.  Weave in all your ends, and GET COZY.

    1. Hi Kelley – I responded to your email, but will leave the reply here too just in case.
      Your foundation row should be a multiple of 14 + 3 additional stitches which count as the 1st double crochet stitch. Double check that you have the correct number of chains in your foundation row, and remember you begin working in the 4th stitch from the hook for row 1.

    1. Hello, I am having the same issue. And I’m noticing the both ends of my rows face outward. Shouldn’t they be opposite?
      What did you do to fix this?
