Lullaby Ripple Afghan

Lullaby Ripple Afghan

The Lullaby Ripple Afghan is a lovely free baby blanket crochet pattern that complicates a simple ripple with long post triple crochets. Both advanced and beginners will enjoy this easy yet interesting pattern. Nothing welcomes a baby into this world better than a handmade crocheted blanket in pretty pastel colors. Any mommy-to-be will adore this afghan as a baby shower gift and snuggle up with her newborn in it. If you want to convert this pattern into something other than a baby blanket, just choose whichever four colors of yarn you want and begin crocheting!

I like the look of this afghan, but when I tried to make it, I found numerous errors in the pattern. Row 1 (working into chain) calls for 5 dc in next dc. Row 2 says repeat from , but there is no star. Does not work out at all.

Hi there, Thanks so much for your comment. We reached out to the designer and modified the instructions. - Julia from FaveCrafts
