Ripple Baby Blanket

 Knitted a Baby Blanket for the month April
just to do a something different.
Got it done early!!

The Pattern is a Knitted Ripple Afghan

I made this one smaller than the pattern calls for because
it is for a new born baby.

I used is Yarnspirations Bernat Pop yarn.
Color is called Pop Art

Needle size 9 and I used a circular knitting because of all the stitches.

The Pattern is for a full size afghan 
approximate finished size is 49" x 66"

The pattern is made up of just 2 different rows which are repeated throughout.

Pattern Row 1

Knit 1, slip 1, knit 1.  
Pass slipped stitch over the knit stitch (decrease made); 
*Knit 9, insert needle into next 2 stitches as if you were going to knit 2 together, 
but instead slip them together to right-hand needle; 
Knit 1, pass the 2 slipped stitches together over the knit stitch (double decrease made); repeat from *across, ending Knit 2 together, Knit 1.

Pattern Row 2

Purl 6 * in next stitch purl, but leave stitch on left-handed needle, Yarn Over, 
Purl again in same stitch, now slip stitch off needle as usual (double increase made);
Purl 9, repeat from * across row ending Purl 6.
NOTE - On next row, each yarn over will be worked as a stitch.

Cast on 303 stitches
Afghan is worked back and forth in rows.

Classic Afghan look is made with 4 different colors.

2 Rows Color A
12 Rows Color B
2 Rows Color A
12 Rows Color C
2 Rows Color A
12 Rows Color D

Repeat Color sequence 6 times.
Then work 2 Rows Color A
12 Rows Color B
2 Rows Color A
Bind off as to knit.

Of course you can make the colors any way you choose to.  Every color can be different it you want.

The Pattern is a multiple of 12 + 3
so you can use it for other projects.

The Baby Blanket I made has 129 stitches.

I used 39 stitches for a scarf.
