Blue Waves Baby Blanket

I came up with this quick and easy blanket because I have had this yummy yarn in my stash for a while just waiting for the right project to show off the ombre effect.  Well, turned out I was in need of a baby boy blanket, so off work I went.  My finished blanket is about 32″ x 34″.

  • MC – Caron Simply Soft Ombre – Saturday Blue Jeans – 4 skeins
  • CC – Small amount of a contrasting color – I used white
  • 5.0mm or Size H Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

If you would like to change the size, this is worked in multiples of 6 + 2.

Chain 98 with MC.

Row 1 – Sc in first chain from the hook, *hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc;  repeat from * to end.  Turn.

Row 2 – Ch 4 (counts as first tr), *dc, hdc, sc, hdc, dc, tr;  repeat from * to end.  Turn.

Row 3 – Ch 1; sc in first stitch, *hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc;  repeat from * to end.  Turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach the desired length.  Finish off.  I did 64 rows on mine.
