Doll Wavy Ripple Blanket

Posted on August 28, 2015

Here is a small ripple baby doll blanket I crocheted. I used my wavy ripple blanket pattern and just crocheted a shorter starting chain. This wavy ripple pattern is very adaptable as I have made dishcloths using the same pattern and baby afghans.

The blanket measures 20 inches wide by 11 inches long. I would have made the blanket longer but I only had about 2-3 ounces of the old vintage variegated yarn I was using. It still worked fine for this 11 inch tall baby doll as a blanket wrap.

Doll Wavy Ripple Blanket Pattern
Using a J ( 6mm) crochet hook, chain 60 to start doll blanket.
Following the wavy ripple stitch pattern by working a double crochet (DC) in the 3rd stitch from hook (counts as 1st DC).

Wavy Ripple Stitch Pattern:
One DC, one DC, one DC, 2 DC Tog, 2DC Tog, one DC, one DC, one DC, 2 DC, 2 DC and so on until you reach the end. Row ends with 2 DC tog, 2 DC tog and then a DC in the last two stitches and in the top of the turning Ch-3. (Basically there are 2 DC in the last stitch as you have a DC in last stitch space and another in the top of the turning chain which other people have questioned me about. So to clarify, make sure you have 3 DCs in the end of each row before turning.)

Ch 3 and turn at the end of each row. Repeat the ripple stitch pattern until you complete 16 rows. I then single crocheted (SC) around entire blanket using white yarn.

Future explanation of rows: Each row begins with a Ch-3 and turn (counts as 1st DC). Then DC in the next two stitches, 2DC tog (together), 2DC tog, DC in each of the next 3 stitches, 2 DC in each of the next 2 stitches, then DC in each of the next 3 stitches. Repeat.

    @Lara – I did a blanket 44 inches wide by chaining 145 for base row. Double crochet (DC) in the 3rd stitch from hook (counts as 1st DC). Then work a DC in each of the next two stitches.Then follow the pattern until it is long enough for your throw.

    Would this be wide enough? Let me know if this will work or I would be happy to help you further.
