I came across this lovely ripple blanket pattern from Attic 24 and knew it would be perfect in rainbow colors. I made it small: 24″ x 24″ so that it would be a good size for a car seat blanket, lovey, and photo prop for my baby girl (due in September). I also think this would make a wonderful gift for someone who is expecting their Rainbow Baby (a “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage or still birth).
The tutorial for this blanket can be found HERE: Attic 24 Neat Ripple Pattern. It has wonderfully detailed instructions and pictures. This pattern is very simple. I was able to make my blanket I’m 2 days. I would love to make a larger version in the next couple months. My only word of advice is to try and make your starting chain loose. Mine was pretty tight, so my first row ends up curling in a little because it is tighter compared to the rest of the blanket. Also, I made 3 rows of each color as opposed to two in the original pattern.
Blanket Dimensions: Almost exactly 24″ x 24″. I made 3 rows of each color and had 14 colors total.
Foundation Chain: 87 chains (6×14+3). I would double this for a larger blanket (171 chains (12×14+3)
Hook Size: Size H Crochet Hook
