Round Ripple Blankets

Posted on May 23, 2018

I have been working hard to use up some of my old stash yarn. As many of us have, I have bags of small balls of yarn and partial skeins of leftover yarn. Some of the yarn doesn’t match up well together but I have really been trying to use it up while doing charity crafting.

Here is the first I completed which is a round ripple lapghan. The lapghan is 35 inches wide and will be going to out the Warmth for Warriors blanket drive.

Next are two different baby blankets I crocheted for Kathryn over at Crochetville. These are going to this year’s NICU blanket drive that she heads up each year.

I used several bits of old Lullaby variegated yarn and mint green yarn in both baby blankets. I did finally run out and finished with some white Red Heart SS to finish off the scalloped blanket.

I crocheted this baby blanket for 15 rounds in the Aggie May’s round ripple pattern. Then I did a new edging for the final 16th round. Here are the details on how I crocheted my scalloped edging.

In last stitch of round 15 (after the join), SC, skip 2 sts, work 6 DC in next st, Skip 2 sts, SC, skip 2 sts, work 8 DC in Ch-2 space at point. Skip 2 sts, SC, Skip 2 sts, work 6 DC in next st, skip 2 sts, SC. Skip next st at bottom of ridge and SC in next st. Repeat around and end with a slip stitch to join into the first SC.

Finished size of the scalloped edged baby blanket is 22.5 inches wide. I really like the look of this round ripple with the scalloped edging. Depending on your number of stitches, you will need to adjust your scallops to fit within the peaks and valleys of the blanket. It worked out just right at 15 rounds to add the scallops as outlined above.
