I have tried making this pattern but the farther up the rows I go, even though I count the stitches, I always end up with rows going smaller than the original first row. I am trying to use the same tension, but for some reason, it seems like I am losing stitches. Any advice?

Hi kenziewood, It's pretty common for a blanket to start getting more narrow as you work your rows if you aren't being careful with your beginning and end of row stitches! I know this happens to me all the time. :) Make sure that you aren't skipping too many stitches at the start of the row - I would suggest you double check a how-to for your stitch just to make sure. At the end of the row, make sure that you work a stitch into the turning chain from your previous row - that should help keep your borders straight and your blanket one standard width. :) Hope that helps!

Thanks so much! I will definitely take your advice!!!

I love the extensive variety of colors used in the rainbow ripple baby blanket. The ripple blanket is such a classic that has been around for many years. I think almost every home had a ripple crochet afghan on the back of their sofa at some point in the 70s. Perfect way to use up some extra yarns.

I've just recently learned how to do the ripple stitch and now I'm fascinated with every ripple project I encounter, as each one has its own unique color combination. This Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket is no exception. It features 5 pastel colors and white, then accentuated with red probably to break the monotony of having rows of light colors. I can't wait to make this baby blanket.
