Alternate between single crochet rows and more challenging rows using crossed treble and double treble crochet stitches to create the pretty lattice pattern on this crochet lapghan. I like to keep things neutral like the version below, but you can choose other shades to show off your handiwork. This is sure to bring comfort to you or a loved one!
For the Diagonal Ripple Lapghan, I modified the Diagonal Chevrons Lapghan pattern to create a different chevron or ripple look. Many crocheters love working the classic crochet ripple pattern in BLO to create a neat ridge effect so I gave it a whirl when working on the bias. If you love to work crochet blankets from corner-to-corner (also known as working on-the-bias) and you love crochet chevrons, then you will really enjoy this lapghan pattern.
