Mélange Blanket Square 17: Framed Ripples Afghan Square

Our seventeenth square pattern is the Framed Ripples Afghan Square by Blackstone Designs. You can find Sonya online at Etsy | Facebook | Instagram | LoveCrafts | PinterestRavelry | Ribblr | TikTok | YouTube

You can see Sonya’s version below.

We both used King Cole Big Value Aran (available through your local yarn shop or online at LoveCrafts or Wool Warehouse UK) in 3 colors for our squares. I also used my Denise US Size J-10/6 mm crochet hook for my blanket so I can keep consistent gauge across all my squares.

The Framed Ripples Afghan Square pattern was very mellow. For my version, I used Nougat as Color A, Berry as Color B, and Ocean as Color C. My square was just shy of 5.5″ (14 cm) after R20, so I added another round as follows: Chain 1, starting in the same stitch [single crochet in each stitch across, (single crochet, chain 2, single crochet) in the next chain-2 space] 4 times, join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. I then spray blocked the square. (If you’re new to blocking, check out Blocking Basics for Crocheters and Knitters.)
