Crochet Breakaway Waves Blanket

When I stumbled across the Bernat Baby Blanket Stripes yarn in Tiny Teal, I immediately knew I wanted to crochet a chevron wave blanket with it.  Sometimes the yarn directs me what to do.  I really love when inspiration hits that way!  So I hope you enjoy my Breakaway Waves Blanket as much as I do.

I wanted to do larger color-block style section, so paired it up with Bernat Blanket yarn in Light Teal to crochet this design.  The name Breakaway Waves came because when my son looked at it, he said it reminded him of crashing waves, and the little foamy whitecaps that are formed in the water.

This is a dense blanket, alternating the Bean Stitch with a section of front post stitches for a deep texture.

Special Stitch
Bean Stitch – Insert hook in next st, yo and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook), yo in same stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yo in same stitch once more and pull up a loop (6 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 6 loops on hook, ch 1 to complete stitch.

Multiples
The multiples in the beginning chain are 23 + 2 to change the width of the blanket.

Each section of the blanket uses a full ball of yarn, but changing size will affect the yarn usage. Also, I did play yarn chicken with the striped yarn. I’m a pretty average crocheter. If you are loose, you may want to drop a hook size. Also, if you run a few stitches short, simply switch colors a bit sooner.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
