Ripple-stitched blankets are very popular and a classic way of making a patterned texture for projects with a large surface area.  The effect is easy to achieve and the final product’s appearance belies the fact that it doesn’t take a lot of effort to complete these projects. Let’s see the most beautiful examples of ripple baby blankets. A link to a free pattern is under its photo.

The 6-Day Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

The 6-day baby blanket is a quick project that uses wavy stripes of alternating colors to achieve a rolling, sea-like effect that’s gentle and soothing to the eye. The texture of this blanket is also quite a bit less pronounced than the cable blanket, while still being enough for little fingers to explore.

Waves and ripples are a soothing pattern. Just think of a calm day at the lake and ripples moving over the water after a Loon makes a splash.
