I finally decided to make this easy Ripple Crochet Baby Blanket free pattern. The truth is that I should have crocheted this baby blanket a couple of months ago, but I’ve been busy with so many things…
What’s important is that the free pattern is ready for you below. After all, “Mieux vaut tard que jamais” (better late than never!). And if you prefer reading the inexpensive ad-free printable PDF, you can grab it on Etsy Here.

I want to crochet at least six new baby girl blankets in the next coming months (I may add a baby boy blanket in the mix as well). At first, I thought that making a blanket would take too much time, but I was wrong.
It took me 16 hours to complete this one, so I can say that you can do it in three, four, or five days. This will depend on your daily schedule. If you are not too busy, let’s just it’s a 4-day baby blanket (I really like calling it like that).
This sweet pink ripple baby blanket is really easy. It’s made with one stitch: double crochet. In other words, it’s a beginner’s dream.
I crocheted this easy baby girl blanket with wool yarn HiMALAYA EVERYDAY, 100% Acrylic, it’s baby soft, so you can be sure your sweetie will love it. It took me 6 skeins, and the finished blanket size is 37×38 inches (94x97cm), but feel free to size it up as you wish.
Just scroll below to start with the free crochet pattern.

Skill level: Easy/Medium
38×38 inches (97×97 cm)
Materials / Supplies:
You will need :
- Crochet hook size: 3mm (D/3).
- Yarn Medium (4): wool or cotton in any color (140g). (I used wool yarn HiMALAYA EVERYDAY, 100% Acrylic / 100 g – 250 mt, 273 yards, 3.5 oz)
- Stitch markers.
- Yarn Needle.
- Tape measure.
- Ch – chain
- St/sts – stitch/stitches
- Sl st – slip stitch (Insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull through both the stitch and loop on the hook).
- Dc – double crochet (Yarn over. Insert hook into stitch. Yarn over pull through stitch. Yarn over pull through two loops. Yarn over pull through two loops).
-Ch 3 does count as a stitch.
-To change color, work the last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the stitch. Proceed with a new color.
-Repeat what is written in the () as many times as it’s written right after the (). For example Repeat (2hdc, hdc1) 5 times. It means that you have to repeat the sequence (work 2 hdc sts into the same st 1 hdc into the next one) 5 times. And you will get 5 additional stitches by doing that.
-At the end of each row please count how many sts you have.
-You can use any 4 weight yarn to make this blanket. You can also use a different yarn weight to make a smaller or larger blanket, using a matching hook – bear in mind your yardage requirements will vary.
-You can make a smaller or larger blanket by chaining a shorter or longer foundation chain. Multiple is 12 ch (+3)
-Gauge is not essential for this project.

Special Stitch: Dc2tog:
Yarn over, insert your hook, pull up a loop, yo pull through two loops and STOP. Yarn over, insert your hook into the next space and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through two loops, yarn over and pull through all the rest of your loops.
Foundation Chain: Chain 147 (144 ch+3) Or chain any multiple of 12 plus 3 for the desired width.
Row 1: Dc in the 4th Ch from hook (skipped 3 ch counts as a DC) 1 Dc in next 3 ch, Dc2tog twice. Repeat (1 Dc in next 3 ch, 2 Dc in next 2 Ch, 1 Dc in next 3 Ch, Dc2tog twice) to last 4 Ch. 1 Dc in next 3 Ch, 2 Dc in last Ch. Turn.
We never count the chain on the hook.
Rows 2-83: Ch 3, Dc in the same st as turning Ch 3 (counts as 2 DC), 1 Dc in next 3 sts, Dc2tog twice, 1 Dc in next 3 sts, 2 Dc in next 2 sts. Repeat (1 Dc in next 3 sts, Dc2tog twice, 2 Dc in next 2 sts) across. Turn.
Note: you will have 2 dc in the first and last stitch of each row.
Repeat row 2 until your project measures the length you want.
