Oh Wavy Baby!

This is yet another baby blanket I designed specifically with The Linus Connection in mind.  Linus receives the great majority of my crochet efforts and because crochet is so portable, I get a lot done.  I crochet in the carpool line, when I watch telly or when I have to wait for an appointment.  If my hands are busy, I tend to be happy!

Use up your scraps, go solid, variegated or ombre.  Each works brilliantly with a wavy ‘ghan!

For the scrappy version, you’ll need:

  • odds and ends of a worsted weight yarn (sample made in Red Heart)
  • K hook

Finished size is approximately 40″, depending on your gauge.   This is a homey pattern and I don’t fuss about the gauge, as long as it’s crocheting up nicely.

Note:  When changing colors, join new color with a sl just before you ch 3 for a new row.

ch 132

Row 1: 1 dc into third ch from hook and in the next three ch, *skip 2 ch, 1 dc into next 4 ch, ch 2, 1 dc in next 4 ch*.  Repeat * to * until the last six ch.  Skip 2 ch, 1 dc in next 3 ch, 2 dc in last ch.  Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: 1 dc in first st, 1 dc in next 3 st, *sk 2 st, 1 dc in next 3 st, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) into ch 2 sp.  1 dc in next 3 st*.  Repeat * to * until the last six ch.  Skip 2 ch, 1 dc in next 3 ch, 2 dc in top of last dc.  Ch 3, turn.

Pattern: Repeat row 2 until blanket is approximately 40″ long.  Finish off.

For a more delicate pattern, try a lighter weight yarn with a smaller hook.

Happy crafting!

    Oh Jen that’s really lovely! And you know how much it means to families who could really use a hug just about the time they get one of those blankets or throws.
