To begin with, this square baby blanket is super versatile. Since you can make it in any yarn weight, you can really vary up the look and texture. Moreover, if you use an ombre or gradient yarn, you will give it gentle, blended color transitions. In turn, these will greatly complement the crisply delineated textures.

This gentle river ripple blanket uses bold colors to show off the popular chevron pattern. It has a timeless appeal to home decor. This is my second chevron blanket that I have ever made. The soft peaks and valleys in this chevron throw remind me of gentle ripples on the water in the moonlight. I was going for a gentle wavy effect and after playing around with the stitches for a bit, the look just came together. Generally, the chevron or zig zag look is achieved by increasing and decreasing stitches at regular intervals throughout a row of stitches. This color pattern is repeated 6 times. To make this blanket symmetrical, I added four more rows of the Cape Cod Blue yarn to the end. Blanket is a total of 64 rows.
This ombré baby blanket has a lovely texture, it is easy to crochet and it works up very quickly. In a short time you'll complete a beautiful handmade gift that will be treasured forever. A great thing about this ombré blanket is that you don’t need to change colors, the yarn makes all the colorwork for you. For this blanket were used 650g (or 2 ⅓ balls) of Red Heart Super Saver Ombre yarn in colorway “Deep Teal”. The knit-like crochet border finishes the blanket beautifully.
The Easy Ombre Baby Blanket uses one skein of Red Heart Yarn's Super Saver Ombre to achieve a wonderful color effect. A border of Red Heart Yarn's Soft yarn completes the project. The body of this blanket uses a V-stitch that is made up of double crochets and chains. The border uses single crochet, double crochet, and slip sts to give a lacy effect. This project works up approximately 29" square and makes a great baby shower gift.
