Rainbow Baby Blanket – WIP Thursday

Rainbow Baby Blanket

My Work In Progress This Week is “Rainbow Baby Blanket

Now that I have a little break from finishing up orders, I decided to make a new baby blanket design. For now I’m naming this new design, “Rainbow Baby Blanket.”

I came across the stitch pattern on YouTube the other day by HappyBerry Crochet while looking for a crochet stitch that would look great as a baby blanket. I was looking for something not very difficult and this was perfect! Sometimes you just want to make something that’s really easy and quick. 

Rainbow Baby BlanketThe stitch pattern is based somewhat on corner to corner (C2C) crochet, where you start an item at the corner and work in a diagonal, increasing each row until you reach the middle and then you begin decreasing until you reach the end of the opposite corner. This allows you to make some really neat designs.

Well, this pattern is worked in rows instead of diagonally. Apparently there is not a proper name for this stitch. HappyBerry Crochet calls it a Mixed Grit Stitch Variation or Half Shell Ripple. Whatever name we give it, the pattern is really neat! The blanket feels thick, but it is actually lighter than it looks.

I’m hoping to finish this “Rainbow Baby Blanket” by Friday evening and I will post the finished project and list it in my shop!

Have you ever worked in C2C crochet? Tell me about it!
