Ripple Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern
A beautiful frilly, delicate, ripple baby blanket knitting pattern for your consideration. I have crochet many ripple blankets, but it would get bored with the same pattern over and over. This is a knitted ripple pattern, totally different. Oh sure it is a ripple. But most knitters will tell you that knitting patterns are just never boring. Besides we usually have so many projects in the works that we just switch off it it gets to be a little too much. Also, baby blankets are a super popular gift at baby showers. So baby blanket knitting patterns will definitely fit the bill.
But this pattern is going to keep you entertained, it is a very pretty knit pattern and it just isn’t boring… ever. It is also a reversible ripple baby blanket knitting pattern, there is no wrong side. The pattern calls for you to begin the repeating pattern rows on an alternating knit or purl row.
The pattern is very easy to memorize and it will be no time before you will be comfortable to watch TV while knitting or even be able to make it a take along project. It is a beautiful pattern and you will get oohs and aahs for all your amazing work. You don’t have to tell them how easy it was.

Using any cast on that you love, cast on in multiples of 11+1 you control the size of your baby blanket, I used size 3 single pointed knitting needles. But you could knit on circular needles if you make it very large. And you can use any size needles, that go with the weight of yarn you choose. This yarn was acrylic baby yarn.
This is a repeating pattern of 17 rows as follows:
Row 1: *k1,yo,k3,k2tog,ssk,k3,yo,* k1 [you can see how this pattern between the *s require 11 stitches, you repeat the 11 stitches the number of times you cast on, until the last stitch then k1] This is the beauty of the ripple stitch and lace in one.
Row 2: purl
Row 3: repeat pattern row
Row 4: purl
Row 5: repeat pattern row
Row 6: purl
Row 7: purl
Row 8: knit
Row 9: purl
Row 10: Repeat pattern row.
Row 11: purl
Row 12: repeat pattern row
Row 13: purl
Row 14: repeat pattern row
Row 15: purl
Row 16: purl
Row 17: knit
Repeat these 17 rows until you have the length you like.
Row number 9 is the odd row that flips the pattern over making this a double sided blanket. There is no wrong side. By starting the eight rows of pattern on a purl row instead of a knit row causes the pattern to reverse to the other side.
The pictures I have taken while I was making this pattern. and I added a couple extra rows for weight but have since decided it is unnecessary. But you can still see what will happen with the reversing of the sides. I like to make patterns as I knit, and sometimes I get too creative. The Blue picture is the pattern without reversing it. I was hoping you would be able to see the lace effect better.
