Spring is the perfect time to crochet this Pastel Rainbow Baby Blanket. The multicolored yarn used for this free crochet afghan pattern by Bernat makes this ideal for both baby boys and baby girls. Ripple afghans are easy to crochet and always tend to have a calming effect, which is great for babies. This homemade blanket will look great in any baby's nursery. It measures approximately 40 inches by 42 inches when complete.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I have actually started my own version of this. Thanks for having the pattern here in front for easy reference to crocheters. This is easy to do. Hope to finish mine before the baby arrives.

I have restarted this pattern 5 times. This is my first ripple crochet I have done. There are no problems making any of the stitches, but starting with Row 2, it does not coordinate to ripple. Are each 3 DC, Ch3, 3 DC supposed to be above the previous one? Please help!

@swankatz 5709589, According to the pattern, and looking at the image itself, it seems as if each does coordinate and go on top of each other, which is how the point of each ripple is made. If this is still confusing you can always reach out directly to Bernat to see if they can help you. -editors of AllFreeCrochet

Yes, the 3dc, ch3, 3dc are worked into the chain space of the previous one. I worked a small sample because there are comments on Yarnspirations.com as well. The mistake I made at first was working between the clusters in the valley of the ripple. There isn't a ch 1 space there. I hope this helps.

why can't I print this pattern?

Currently we do not have a print button directly on the page. For now you'll have to copy and paste into a Word document and print from there. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks - AllFreeCrochet Editors

Hi I printed it free from www.yarnspirations.com I'm having mega problems with it just like swankatz's comment above. I'm on my fourth attempt now and hope it will actually make sense. The picture says one thing but the actual instructions... anyway, I'll try again. Good luck and please let us know how you get on following the actual instructions I sooo curious.

wish you would have shown picture i can't read pattern but can work from picture
