I wanted to make a colorful soft rainbow baby blanket pattern. I love the soft waves of this basic ripple baby blanket crochet pattern. This pattern uses the a classic ripple or wave baby blanket pattern. This pattern is an one repeat.

I would call this free crochet pattern an advanced beginner. Chevron, wave, or ripple blankets require counting on each row to make sure you have the valleys and peaks in the correct spot. The crochet stitches are not complicated but it is easy to get off track if you are not careful.

  • Baby Blanket: 29 in x 35 in – a great size for a new baby with room to grow (73.66 cm x 88.9 cm)
  • Swaddling Blanket: 40 in x 40 in- for wrapping a newborn up tight usually made of gauze or flannel (101.6 cm) but a lightweight yarn would work
  • Crib: 45 in x 60 in (114.3 cm x 152.4 cm) – a great blanket size for growing into, toddlers, or a throw for older children

Of course, these sizes are just standard blanket sizes and you wan make them to fix your needs and size. My size choice also depends on how much yarn I have left and the repeat of the pattern.
