~ Ripples & Shells baby blanket ~


**This pattern was inspired by (and permission given by) Aggie May (Colleen) from Crochetville.**

**I have only worked this pattern up to the 21st round - it measures 26" x 34".**

**This baby blankie was crocheted with Red Heart's 'Peruvian Print' - it was crocheted for a boy.  As with any of your projects - you can choose any color that you would like.**

For this blankie I used:  12 ounces of 4-ply worsted weight yarn
             and a "J" hook
 
Notes:
 
v-st = dc, ch 2, dc
shell = 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc
 
Directions:
 
Rnd 1:  Ch 29, 4 dc in 4th ch from hook.  Dc in next 24 chs, 5 dc in next ch.  Now working on opposite side of ch, dc in next 24 chs.  Join with a sl st to top of ch 3.
 
Rnd 2:  Ch 3, dc in same st.  2 dc in each of next 4 dc.  Dc in next 24 dc.  2 dc in each of next 5 dc.  Dc in next 24 dc.  Join as before.

Rnd 5:  Sl st into next dc, ch 3, shell in shell, dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc.  *Dc in next dc, shell in shell, dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc.  Repeat from * 3 more times.  Ch 1, shell in next 6 shells.  Skip next 3 dc, ch 1.  *Dc in next dc, shell in shell, dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc.  Repeat from * 4 more times.  Ch 1, join as before.
 
Rnd 6:  Sl st in next dc, ch 3, dc in next dc, v-st in shell, dc in next 2 dc.  *Skip next 2 dc, dc in next 2 dc, v-st in shell, dc in next 2 dc.  Repeat from * 3 more times.  Ch 1, shell in next 6 shells.  Skip next 3 dc, ch 1, dc in next 2 dc, v-st in shell, dc in next 2 dc, skip next 2 dc, dc in next 2 dc, v-st in shell, dc in next 2 dc.  Repeat from * 3 more times.  Ch 1, skip next 3 dc, shell in next 6 shells.  Ch 1, join as before.

  6. That is lovely and I might try that pattern because I don't have to use crochet cotton to make the doily. I have no patience anymore for Cotton thread ;-) My eyes are getting too old for tiny things.

  15. I am trying to get started but am having trouble from slip stitch in ch 3 in row 1. That would make the join being before the end of the row. I am confused. Can you help?

    1. Hi Glenda. Counting the ch 3 as a dc at the beginning - you should end up with a total of 58 dc. You are going around in an oval. Now join with a sl st to the beginning ch 3 - you are now at the beginning of Rnd 2. Look at the picture of the yellow and white example - (click on it and it will get a little bigger) - you can see where the joining is.

  16. I am having trouble on round seven. Could you write it out for me? I really do not want to mess up and could not see it clearly in the picture. Thanks.

    1. Hi Cassandra.

      For the pattern: repeat Rnd 5 three times and then Rnd 6 once increasing the number of dc along both sides of each ripple as necessary.

      (The ripple points will be shell, shell, shell and then v-st)

      Rnds 7, 8 & 9 - repeat Rnd 5

      Rnd 10 - repeat Rnd 6

      remember that the number of dc's will increase along both sides of each ripple when you work a repeat of Rnd 5.

  17. I'm very late in seeing this, but it's so cute! Very nice job. I saw Fru Alberton's that she made and followed her link to you. Hers looks really good too! Thanks for sharing your pattern, as always.

  18. How much yarn does this pattern take. It says worsted weight but not how much.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Jan. I had forgotten to weigh the blanket so I'm not really sure. I believe I used four (4) of the five (5) ounce skeins of Red Heart yarn. I will weigh the blanket I gave to my great-nephew later on today and see how much it weighs. :)

      Delete
    2. Hi again Jan. I was way off on trying to remember the number of skeins I used for this blanket. I went to my sister's house and weighed the blankie - it only weighs 12 ounces. :)

  19. Rnd 5: Sl st into next dc, ch 3, shell in shell, DC IN NEXT DC, skip next 2 dc. *Dc in next dc, shell in shell, DC IN NEXT DC, skip next 2 dc. Repeat from * 3 more times. Ch 1, shell in next 6 shells. Skip next 3 dc, ch 1. *Dc in next dc, shell in shell, dc in next dc, skip next 2 dc. Repeat from * 4 more times. Ch 1, join as before.

    When I am doing rows 7, 8, & 9 do I do my increases by adding another DC in the areas that I marked with upper case? If so do I increase an extra DC in each row so row 7 would be 2 DC and Row 8 would be 3 DC and row 9 would be 4 DC?
    Do I have to do any increase in the repeat row 6 with the v st?
    Did you do any finish edge for a boarder?

    1. Yes - you have it right - you will increase a dc on each side of each shell (on the ripple ends - not the shells on the sides) for the repeats of Rnd 5.

      For the repeats of Rnd 6 there are no increases.

      I only crocheted 1 round of sc for the border.

  20. Do I do the repeat row 6 as it is written or do I have to dc in the increases from row 5 or do I skip more then 2 dc to get to the shell to do the Vst?

    1. Hi there. To work the repeats of Rnd 6, increase the number of dc along both sides of each ripple as necessary. :)

      Delete
    2. Hello Debi. I am doing row 6(first one). I don't understand the "Ripple is shell,shell,shell, v-st. Where does that go.

      Delete
    3. Hi Ann. For the next 3 rnds you will work shell stitches in the ripple points on the ends. Then for 1 rnd you will work a v-stitch in the ripple points. Remember to increase the number of dc along the sides of each ripple as necessary. You just keep repeating those 4 rnds until it gets as big as you would like.

    4. Thanks Debi. That now makes sense and I can picture what to do. It should be really great when
      it is finished. Thanks again.
