I love to crochet blankets for new babies! I made this one for a very special little one who will be here soon. 🙂
I followed this pattern from Daisy Farm Crafts. I used Yarn Bee Soft Secret yarn in White, Soft Pink, and Seafoam with a J/6mm hook to crochet my blanket. (I love these hooks.) I used 3 skeins of White and 1 skein each of the Soft Pink and Seafoam.

I began my blanket with white, crocheting 14 rows of each color. I crocheted 9 stripes total (white, pink, white, seafoam, white, pink, white, seafoam, white) for a total of 126 rows. Then I crocheted a border of 2 rows of single crochet around the blanket, which is not in the pattern.
I love the texture this pattern has by working in the back loop only of each stitch.
The finished size of my blanket is about 31 by 45 inches. Your finished blanket size may vary depending on the yarn and hook that you use.
This is a classic ripple pattern that is easy and fun to make. Try it the next time you need to make a baby blanket.
