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.

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.
