Rainbow Ripple Baby BankletSpanish translation
Hi, arachnids! Happy New Year! This new year comes with pending surprises from 2016… because it’s never too late to catch up 🙂
As I mentioned before, 2016 was supposed to be the blanket and afghan year and I think we kind of achieve it with the Pastel Spring Blanket pattern by me and the translation of the Ocean Tranquility Afghan by Anastacia Zittel.
But we want more! And for that reason we bring you the translation of this free pattern “Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket” by Celeste Young.
As the name suggests, this is a colorful blanket full of pastel ripples that you can make in any color and combination you want.
For this pattern I use DMC yarns once again, this time with the classic and beloved “Natura Just Cotton” in four colors: N48 (green), N99 (turquoise), N02 (white), N27 (blue) y N46 (olive green). This cotton is in-cre-di-ble! It’s so soft that you can feel it slipping through your fingers and the best past is that I tried it in the washing machine and it’s confirmed that its colors don’t bleed.
For my first blankets I used more gender neutral colors but this time I decided for colors typically considered “masculine”.
This pattern is really easy (you only use chains and double crochets) and it’s repetitive so you only need to learn a few instructions to make it. Final dimensions are completely up to you and you can make it as big as you want (or until you run out of yarn).
What I liked the most about this pattern is that it doesn’t have any lace section that could deform after washing it so it’s perfect for parents that don’t have time to worry about these things when they already have a crying baby.
I had some leftovers so I decided to make a small security blanket. I don’t have an specific pattern because I did freely but you can use any amigurumi pattern, do the head and then continue with the blanket pattern.
If you want more color combination ideas, you have to go to the Ravelry page of this pattern but you can get addicted and browse for hours!
The blanket doesn’t have lace sections but I think it’s better to block it when you finish, so you can fix the star points.
I hope you like it and I’ll see you in our next post!
PD: If you think this is familiar it could be that you recognized the similarity with the Christmas rug we made two years ago!
