Crochet Ripple Blanket
You might remember when I started another project – a wonderful, rainbow-colored afghan – at the beginning of the year. This time, it was a ripple. Based off Attic 24’s crochet ripple blanket pattern, this blanket was to be comprised of over 17 different colors.
I watched as the blanket grew weekly–during late night crochet sessions, a movie, a phone call with a friend, or while watching some episodes of Arrested Development.
A pink ripple here, a purple ripple there. And now some orange. Stop. Look at the colors. What’s missing? Ooh… maybe some cobalt blue to make the colors pop.
Some ripple stats:
- Finished size – About 5 feet, 5 inches tall by 4 feet wide
- Rows – 156
- Different Colors – 17
- Stitch count – over 10,000 (or 9,984 plus a border of single crochet, to be exact)
The ripple is larger than the hexagon afghan I crocheted last year and when she’s spread out, she takes up quite some space. As usual, I took way too many pictures of the finished product, but the colors make it hard not to enjoy. I hope you, blog reader–even though you can’t touch the ripple, can’t feel how soft the baby cashmerino yarn makes her waves–can enjoy her, too through my humble pictures.
This blanket is ready to go to its new home where I know it will bring happiness and warmth. It’s been a real treat finishing her the past couple months and I know she’ll be in good hands. Hope you enjoyed!

Oh my! This is absolutely stunning! My mom taught me to crochet in the 4th grade, but I could never figure out where my next stitch went and my edges were jagged.
