New Free Pattern - Simple Crochet Ripple Baby Blanket

Pattern by Haley Waxberg

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern repeat for this blanket is 14 +2 sts, so if you want to increase or reduce the size of your project, add or subtract stiches in multiples of 14. Each ripple measures approximately 4”. Additionally, don't be afraid to skip over part of the colourway if it isn't working, sometimes Noro throws in a colour that's a dud.

Resources for New Crocheters
The Crocheter's Companion by Nancy Brown is an excellent reference resource.
StitchDiva also has excellent tutorials:
There are also helpful video tutorials on youtube titled The Art of Crochet by Teresa:
