I hope you are having a great day! I am wanting to share with you a new pattern today. I was browsing through Pinterest again looking for inspiration in crochet stitches. I saw several wave-like patterns and decided I needed to try my hand at something similar.
As you may or may not know, I love making baby blankets. All of my friends receive a blanket anytime they are expecting a new little one. It’s something I started doing a while back and I really enjoy it.
There’s nothing more rewarding than to see a mama using something you made to wrap their little one in. I think I smile every time I see it happen!
One thing I am really trying to work on is expanding my knowledge of stitches both with knitting and crochet. I feel if I’m learning new stitches then my inspiration for creating original pieces will grow leaps and bounds.
I hope to reach their level of success when it comes to designing my own patterns. Until then, I am going to work hard at learning as much as I can and sharing that progress here with you guys!
WHAT I USED:
- hook in any size you wish
- 3 colors in a total of 6-8 skeins (2 per color) this skein amount would be ideal for a baby blanket
- tapestry needle
It might seem a bit confusing at first but once you work your way through two rows you’ll be able to continue along from memory!
R1 – (color A) SC in the 5th ch from the hook (this will act as a TRC stitch), TRC in the next CH, TRC in the next CH, DC in the next CH, HDC in the next CH, SC in the next CH, HDC in the next CH, DC in the next CH, TRC in the next 3 CHs, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, TRC in the next 3 CHs. ***This is a wave like repeat and you will continue along ending with a TRC. You will add on your new color here (color B) and do the next 2 rows in this color.
R2 – (color B) CH 1, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, TRC in next 3 CHs, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, TRC in next 3 CHs. You will begin to see you are basically “filling in” the waves with your new color. You will end with a SC and then you will mirror this row.
R2 – (color B) CH 1, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, TRC in next 3 CHs, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, TRC in next 3 CHs. Once you get to the end you will add in your third color.
R3 – (color C) CH 4, TRC in next 2 CHs, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, HDC in next CH, DC in next CH, TRC in next 3 CHs, DC in next CH, HDC in next CH, SC in next CH, continue along until you reach the end.
R4 – (color C) this is a mirror of R3 so you are placing the same stitches above every stitch along the row.
You will continue this along making two rows from each color. Make this as long as you would like! This would be an easy weekend project, especially as the winter weather is setting in. You can stay warm and cozy while you make this one up.
Also, you aren’t limited to how many colors you use. This would be very pretty in an ombre effect. In that case, you would need several colors to work from.
