Crochet Gentle Waves Baby Blanket
When I looked at the colour of this yarn, the first thing I was to remind of was the gentle waves of the ocean. So I had to crochet this Gentle Waves Baby Blanket to represent the yarn. I love a soft rippling blanket and this one will be perfect to wrap around a newborn baby.
The Caron Chunky Cakes is a soft 100% acrylic #6 weight yarn. I only needed 2 Cakes to crochet this 28″ x 35″ blanket. The multiple is 8 + 4 if you would like to adjust the size to a bigger afghan. (Pattern updated 1/26/18)

No blue button
Looking at the diagram in the video, row 3 is still wrong. Here’s the fix, starting at the *
*3 sc in next ch-1 sp, sc in next stitch
Then go in the the parentheses.
The 3 sc goes into the top of the chain one space from the (dc, chain one, dc) from the row below. Following the pattern as written out, you drop many stitches and it starts to curve. So watch the video and pause on the diagram.
Is the stitch count for row 3 the same as the starting chain? I can’t seem to make it match up. I have watched the video many times and I have downloaded the written pattern.
Love the pattern and tutorial great job blanket looks very comfy?
I am having trouble with row 3, so I watched the tutorial. Mikey doesn’t follow the written directions for row 3…..in the written form, it says to skip a stitch before and after the 3 sc in the same stitch….he doesn’t do that in the video. Which is correct?
Mikey’s video is correct because he used my diagram. I have corrected the written pattern. I’m so sorry for the confusion.
Do you have a link for the diagram? I was having trouble making row 4 line up, I am glad I looked at the above comment, I am following the written pattern. Thank you!
