Stitches for this Ripple Wave Blanket

Simple crochet projects like this blanket design are always a must for me because they usually use easy crochet stitches. To make a wave blanket, you will need to know how to make a few basic stitches, like the single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). Learn more about each stitch below.

Double Crochet (dc): 

  1. Wrap the yarn over (Yo) the hook, insert the hook into the specified st.
  2. Yo the hook again, draw the yarn through the st, so there are 3 loops on the hook
  3. Yo the hook again draw it through 2 loops, so there are 2 loops on the hook
  4. Yo the hook, draw it through the final 2 loops.

Single Crochet (sc):

  1. Insert hook from front to back in the second chain from the hook or designated stitch
  2. Bring the yarn over (Yo) the hook and pull the yarn back through the chain (or stitch) from back to front (2 loops on hook).
  3. Yo and pull through both loops on the hook.

Speaking of crochet hooks, be sure to use the size your yarn label calls for if you are going to use a different weight of yarn that I did. Every yarn is different, so for the best results, try to follow along with the recommended size of crochet hook for a good blanket outcome.

  1. This is a lovely pattern. Could you tell me please what was the size of your blanket? I am wondering about how many chains I’d need for a twin . I’m looking for a pattern that works up fairly quick and is easy to do to make for my grandsons. Thank you in advance.:)) Sincerely Lynn

  4. I am making this for a friend. I was just wondering how many skeins you used for the whole pattern.

    1. Hi Amy,
      I believe I used one skein per block of color. I gave this away as a gift a while ago so I don’t have the exact # of color blocks I used. Hope this helps.
