Leaf Ripple Crochet Blanket Pattern – Cozy Velvet Yarn

Looking for a pretty ripple throw afghan? A throw that is soft and squishy but not too hard to make? This free velvet leaf ripple crochet blanket pattern will be a great project to try.

This free ripple crochet pattern only has two stitches: half double and half double crochet together. The pattern of the classic ripple stitch is a one row repeat.

I was looking for my next crochet project and wanted to make a blanket with Bernat Velvet Yarn and use the ripple stitch like this dishtowel pattern I made. I love the softest of the yarn it is even softer than Bernat Blanket Yarn.

The Bernat Velvet Yarn is a bulky weight 5 yarn. It is a little difficult to use. If you do not keep your tension tight and even, it will pull out or what is called worming.

I would suggest you practice a swatch of half double crochets until you have a feel for the yarn and make sure to keep your tension tight.

My favorite color green was my choice for this blanket. I love the soft colors available. The lighter color looks gray but is really a green gray. You cannot really tell in person. It could be a light gray.

This free blanket pattern is a classic version of the chevron blanket crochet pattern. It is a great wavy version of the crochet ripple blanket pattern.

Tips for Velvet Yarn

You will want to make the yarn into balls. The first skein of yarn was in 4 parts and got all tangled. It took forever to untangle it all. Also, the yarn is tied together with tiny knots so if the skein has come apart you can tie a tight tiny knot.

Practice first using a tight tension. When you change colors tie the color you are ending in a knot. The yarn tends to unravel itself.
