The Brighton Blanket is the kind of artifact that stays in homes for centuries. Its beautiful colors and intricate design really make it stand out from any other crochet blanket pattern you could work up. The afghan pattern itself is more on the intermediate side, but it is definitely worth the effort. Imagine turning your boring, white-walled living room into a spectacle of color all because you took the time to work up this brilliant crochet afghan. With a gorgeous ripple pattern set off with thin rows of basic stitches, this pattern really is one of a kind.

This Brighton Blanket is simply beautiful. It took a while to navigate to find the free pattern but I did find it. This is a true intermediate design but I promise you it is worth the effort. I often use the I Love this Cotton brand yarn and I agree with the designer that it is easy to work with.

The presentation of this blanket is stunning. The colors are very attractive and I understand the size is made to fit a crib but great to know that there are instructions as well as pictures to help you through the crochet process.

I made this for my niece. It came out amazing! The pictures made making this possible for me as I have never attempted anything quite this complicated. Also, you get the pattern down it goes rather quickly. The result was just stunning and my niece loved it!

What a gorgeous blanket. I am not sure it would be good for a baby / infant though because of all of the open work for little fingers and toes to get caught in. But, it would be a perfect blanket for me. I love the look and those colors. Customizing to a larger size would be a snap and this is a must make for me.

This is a very different and unique new way to do a ripple stitch pattern. I love the unusual look it has. The colors the designer chose for her blanket are stupendously beautiful and they blend together so well. I have not had a chance to work with the cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby yet, but it certainly did a nice job on this project.

An absolutely stunning work of art. I can stare at this afghan all day long. Now this is a project that I would LOVE to take on myself. I have not worked with the Hobby Lobby yarn "I Love This Cotton!" and this seems like the perfect project to give it a try.

I love the colors in this afghan. The stiches are beautiful, also. I have been looking for an afghan to make and I think this one might be it! The ways the colors flow from one to the next is beautiful plus, the colors in between each major row just add to the flowing.

LThis is the kind of pattern that makes me want to stop surfing the web and immediately grab my crochet hook! I see designs like this, and want to know how theyre constructed. The embedded video on this page is for ripple afghans in general, not this specific project. At the designers own page, she directs you to her free .pdf available at both Ravelry and Craftsy for the actual pattern.

This such a pretty afghan. I found the pattern without any problems. I was glad to see not only the instructions, but very clear pictures to make this pattern much easier to do.

I made this pattern as a baby blanket for a friend of the family. I only used 4 colors (pink, grey, white and raspberry). It was difficult to figure out and if the photos weren't there I would have given up. However, once I got the hang of it and paid close attention to counting it went pretty quickly. I finished it and will be shipping it to my friend to give to her daughter-in-law at her shower. I'm happy with it and would do it again.

I love this Brighton Blanket pattern. It took me a few minutes to find the link to down load the pattern but once I did and read it, oh wow how different this pattern is. I can't wait to get a 50% off coupon for my craft store to buy all the yarn colors to make this one! The pattern is well written and the pictures are so clear. I like the idea of making a cowl with this pattern. I'm wondering though if using cotton yarn would make this a heave blanket. Great for the winter months to create. This is on my to-do-list for sure! Thank you so much for this free pattern.

i love the colors on this one. I think it would make a great baby shower gift for my cousin in a few months!

I purchased this kit with the recommended cotton yarn and I have worked 5 rows. I must say I am very disappointed with this cotton yarn as it is so very dull and not at all attractive like the photo. I have been crocheting for 50 years and this pattern definitely needs to be checked for errors and corrected. I ripped out and restarted several times and since it is so very dull looking, this may be tossed into the unfinished pile and restarted with a soft attractive yarn. If it weren't for the photos, I wouldn't have gotten this far since the written instructions do not match the photos. Find another project.

I thank you for your comment, I would use soft yarn.

I really appreciate your comment since I was looking at starting this project as a pretty addition to my master bedroom bedding. I've been crocheting for several years but the stitched look complex just from the photos. Have you checked the pattern again to see if she updated it with corrections? The pictures look so lovely, so I'm still tempted to try it, I'm so glad you left your honest opinion about the pattern, helps save others from frustrations mid-project.

I was looking to get the pattern for the Brighton Blanket and was directed to the Felt Button to BUY the pattern. What gives with the promised free pattern involved with this site. Won't let me drag the image here but I given the name of this particular project - there is another with a little girl's dress (Puff Stitch Halter Dress) that also doesn't provide the pattern only the materials.

nmDEEJ - This pattern is free, but you have to do a little work in order to find it, for which we are sorry, but the blogger supplies us with the link. Click the link given on AllFreeCrochet. Then scroll down to where the blog gives you the ravelry link, click that. Then you can search the page (control f) for "Brighton" and you can click on the pattern and download the full free pattern from there. Happy crocheting! - Editor of AllFreeCrochet

This is supposed to be a free downloadable pattern too bad you have to be a member of either ravelry or craftsy in order to get the pattern. I don't consider this a free pattern at this point. How disappointing!
