Adjusting the Size of Your Ripple Blanket:
The chart above should help you get started changing the size of your ripple blanket. In order, to add an additional “peak,” you’ll need to add 14 stitches to your foundation chain. Once you determine your foundation length, the rows will be exactly the same.
Get creative and make this blanket as big or as small as you like! If you have questions about adjusting the size of your ripple blankets, feel free to send me a message on Instagram.
Row 1: dc in the third chain from the hook. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc 2 tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. Dc in the next 4 stitches. Dc2tog, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last chain. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2: dc in the first st (your ch 2 and your first dc are worked in the same stitch) and in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog, dc2tog. Dc in the next 4 stitches. *Work 2 dc into the next 2 stitches. dc in the next 4 stitches. dc2tog, dc2tog. dc in the next 4 stitches.* End with 2 dc in the last stitch. Ch 2, turn.
NOTE: you will have 2 dc in the first and last stitch of each row (ch 2 counts as dc).
You will continue repeating row two until you have 55 rows (or really, you could keep going as long as you’d like). My stripe pattern is as follows:
3 rows white, 3 rows gray, 5 rows white, 2 rows pink, 5 rows gray, 2 rows white, 5 rows gray, 5 rows pink, 3 rows white, 5 rows gray, 2 rows white, 5 rows pink, 5 rows white, 3 rows pink, 2 rows white.
