Crochet Ridged Baby Blanket

Hi friends,

It seems like I almost always have a crochet baby blanket on my hook – or at least I’m thinking about the next one I will be making. 🙂 There are literally thousands of patterns out there to choose from, and I’ve made a lot of them! Today I want to share a pattern I created. I hope you like it!

The Crochet Ridged Baby Blanket is a simple repeat of double crochet with front post double crochet and back post double crochet stitches to create the “ridges”. I made this blanket using Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in Earthblossom and an H/5mm hook.

I decide to let the yarn just make whatever pattern it was going to make as I went along. Even though my skeins were all the same dye lot, you can see in the picture below that they didn’t all stitch up the same. But I kinda like the way it turned out! 🙂

Here’s a closer look at the border which is rounds of single crochet in the back loop only. You can find my free pattern below. I’ve also included a link to a free PDF if you’d like to easily print it.

I think this pattern would work up beautifully in a solid color. Or maybe a solid color with a different color border.

What are your favorite colors for baby blankets?

Happy Stitching!
