Crochet Pattern: For Kyle Baby Blanket

For Kyle Baby Blanket, free #crochet pattern by Marie Segares/Underground CrafterI love ripples. But there’s something about having a clean, straight edge on a blanket that I really enjoy. So for this baby blanket, I chose a stitch pattern that creates the appearance of a ripple when striped, but keeps the edges straight.

As my long-time readers know, I donate several crochet projects each year. In December, on a very stormy and rainy afternoon (hence, the lack of photographic evidence), I took a stack of baby blankets to the post office to mail to Kyle, South Dakota to the Oyate Teca Project, one of the many programs you can learn about in the Friends of the Pine Ridge Reservation website. This blanket, designed for donation, was one of those in the box.

    What a great colour combo! I know just what you mean by liking those straight edges too. It gives a finished touch to a throw.

      I”m sorry to hear you’re having a hard time, Jamie. All of my patterns use American abbreviations. You can look through the list of abbreviations at the beginning of the pattern for more details. Hope this helps.

    I have almost completed this pattern. Can you tell me if this blanket is meant for the rows to be vertical upon completion or have i read pattern incorrectly.
    Thanks I love the pattern and will be making 2 more .. a friend is expecting triplets ☺

    • February 22, 2016 / 11:48 am

      Thanks for asking, Sherry, and I’d love to see pictures when you finish. The stripes are worked horizontally (so, as you crochet, it will look like the image in the very top picture), but you can display it however you’d like. I think it would look very cute vertical!

    On your pattern, rows 2 and 3 are exactly the same, which basically makes every row the same. I love your blanket and the way it turned out. Mine isn’t turning out like yours at all (although I’m not far into it yet, and maybe I’m just not seeing it). Am I missing something or is there is misprint in the directions? Thanks, I love the blanket you made!

    • March 28, 2016 / 1:05 am

      Thanks for writing, Dani. The rows are actually different, because there is a color change at the end of Row 2 but not at the end of Row 3. If you are not changing colors, or are changing colors more frequently, it will look different than the sample. Let me know if you have other questions.

      Thanks for writing. At the moment, I don’t have a tutorial for this pattern. I am slowly working through my archives to add more tutorials.

    I don’t understand finishing edge

      Dee, have you tried listening to the audio recording? I know some crocheters find it more understandable when they are listening. The edging is worked in the round.
