Circular Ripple Blanket

It has been over a month since I last posted! I am sorry!! This time of the year I am always quite busy.

So here we are. I've only been working on two projects this past month. One is the baby blanket for my friend. I really liked the way the circular ripple turned out! But you wouldn't believe the number of people who asked what it was, and when I told them it was a blanket their first remarks were "Wow, you have a lot more to go!". My husband even thought it was a tablecloth. LOL



It's a perfect size for a car carrier, or just to snuggle the baby up in. Small so it doesn't drag everywhere, but big enough for what matters.

The pattern I used came from here. But to be honest, I didn't like it. This is how I modified it.

To Start: ch 8, sl st in 1st chain to form ring
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 11 dc in ring, sl st to first ch-3 (12 st)
Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in same sp, 2 dc in each st around, sl st to first ch-3 (24 st)
Rnd 3: Ch 7, sk next dc, dc in next dc, *ch 4, skip next dc, dc in next dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch-7 (12 dc, 12 ch-4 spaces)
Rnd 4: Sl st in next ch-4 sp, ch 3, 1 dc in same sp, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp - *2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in next ch-4 sp*, rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3 (12 ch-2 sp)
Rnd 5: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next dc, sk next 2 dc, dc in next dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
Rnd 6: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next dc, sk next 4 dc, dc in next dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
Rnd 7: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next 2 dc, sk next 2 dc, dc in next 2 dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
Rnd 8: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next 3 dc, sk next 2 dc, dc in next 3 dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
Rnd 9: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next 3 dc, sk next 4 dc, dc in next 3 dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3

Rnd 15: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next 7 dc, sk next 4 dc, dc in next 7 dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
Rnd 16: sl st into next dc, ch 3, *(2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch 2 sp, dc in next 8 dc, sk next 2 dc, dc in next 8 dc* - rep from * to * around, sl st in first ch-3
