Sometimes all I want is an easy repeated stitch pattern, just to get my hands busy without thinking too much. That's why I love the Wattle stitch so much, it's a simple stitch with a gorgeous texture, and it makes a beautiful and easy crochet blanket! The Wattle stitch has such a nice texture, the blanket will look lovely both in solid yarn and variegated yarn. The blanket can be adjusted to any size and any type of yarn. Stitches used in this pattern: ch, sc, hdc, dc.
When I designed this baby blanket, the snow just started melting and the fresh grass shoots were showing up in places. I wanted the Spring Vibes Baby Blanket to reflect just that. The white and grey blanket reminds me of the melted snow and the green, busy edging resembles the fresh grass. For this blanket, I use 2 strands of double knit yarn held together, one strand of white and one of grey, and the granny stripe stitch for the pattern. For the border, I use just one strand of double knit yarn in green and the layered scallops border.
I finally decided to make this easy Ripple Crochet Baby Blanket free pattern. The truth is that I should have crocheted this baby blanket a couple of months ago, but I ve been busy with so many things What important is that the free pattern is ready for you below. After all, Mieux vaut tard que jamais (better late than never!) I want to crochet at least six new baby girl blankets in the next coming months (I may add a baby boy blanket in the mix as well).
