Do you know what else these women and even men ask? These usually ask things like: what kind of color can I wear? Is it cool to make only one color? Can I use different colors? Can I wear some kind of frill with them? Well all questions are answered YES, you can use whatever you want to make your Baby Ripple Afghan.

Baby Ripple Afghan

Now let’s move on to a new concept on the Baby Ripple Afghan, don’t worry, we have no intention of changing any ways to make the Afghan Ripple be for baby sheet, or blankets, or quilts, it’s just a different way of how you’ll do your new job.

My husband always day that to do something, it is necessary to keep in mind 3 things: 1- have the model in mind, 2- know which colors to use and 3- the ideal size of the piece we want to do. He completes by saying that more important than wearing the garment is to like to work with the crochet especially when it comes to Baby Ripple Afghan wonderful.

So let’s start making our Baby Ripple Afghan with detailed instructions and diverse images and of course always with a great video to help us understand the dots and make them right.

Baby Ripple Afghan step by step

Let’s start with one step at a time. Remembering that this step is not mine, but it is the one I use most in my work, and this one belongs to SUSAN B.

Materials needed:

Yarn

Worsted weight acrylic yarn in desired colors. About 12 ounces each of 3 different colors (36 ounces total) will make a 40 inch by 60 inch afghan (the ideal size for Project Linus). I made a 40 inch by 60 inch afghan using 10 three ounce skeins of variegated yarn.

or

Sport or baby sport yarn. I made a 42 inch by 39 inch afghan with about 21 ounces of baby sport yarn.

Crochet hook

  • Crochet hook size I for worsted weight yarn
  • Crochet hook size G for sport weight/3-ply yarn
  • (Increase or decrease your hook size if you crochet tightly or loosely.)

Gauge:

worsted wt. yarnsport yarn
8 rows = 5 inches8 rows = 4 inches
1 pattern repeat is 5 inches wide1 pattern repeat is 3.75 inches wide

Abbreviations/Stitches:

  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • yo – yarn over
  • 3 st dec – 3 stitch decrease (also known as: dc3tog)
  • *yo, insert hook through next stitch, yo and pull loop through stitch, yo and pull through first 2 loops on hook; Repeat from * twice. Yo and pull through remaining 4 loops on hook.
  • 2 st dec – 2 stitch decrease (also known as: dcdec or dc2tog)
  • *yo, insert hook through next stitch, yo and pull loop through stitch, yo and pull through first 2 loops on hook; Repeat from * once. Yo and pull through remaining 3 loops on hook.

Instructions:

  • Chain a multiple of 16 stitches plus 2 stitches.
  • For a 40 inch wide afghan in worsted weight yarn, chain 130.
  • For a 55 inch wide afghan in worsted weight yarn, chain 178.
  • For a 41 inch wide afghan in sport weight/3-ply yarn, chain 178.

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook; dc in next 6 ch, 3 dc in next ch, dc in next 6 ch; *work 3 st dec in next 3 ch, dc in next 6 ch, 3 dc in next ch, dc in next 6 ch; Repeat from * across. End by working 2 st dec in last 2 ch. Ch 2 and turn.
Note: The valleys will probably be shallower than the peaks at this point. Work another row or two and they should even up.

Row 2: Skip first stitch; dc in next 7 dc, 3 dc in next dc, dc in next 6 dc; *work 3 st dec in next 3 stitches, dc in next 6 dc, 3 dc in next dc, dc in next 6 dc; Repeat from * across. End by working 2 st dec in last 2 dc. Ch 2 and turn.

Repeat Row 2 until afghan is desired length changing, colors as desired. If you are using more than one color of yarn, I suggest changing colors every 2 rows.

Changing colors Baby Ripple Afghan wonderful

At end of row, when working the 2 st dec, drop the current color of yarn when you have the last 3 loops left on your hook to finish the stitch. Yarn over with new color of yarn and pull through 3 loops on hook. Ch 2 and turn.

Leave 5 or 6 inch ends of each color of yarn to weave in.

Finishing

Weave all yarn ends in securely.

Variation 1 – Ribbed Ripple:

Beginning with Row 2, work all stitches in the back loop only to create a ribbed effect.
