8 Points Round Ripple Blanket

Hi :D it's been a while since i posted on here even though i havent been (really) slacking on projects...
Here is my pattern for a round ripple blanket. i'm surprised at how it turned out cuz it started out not even looking like the picture. i'll put progress pics further on in the post so you can see what i mean.
Anyway, i used Caron Simply Soft yarn and an aluminum size J hook. The directions are a bit funky since i couldn't get the written pattern to flow the way my hook did, hopefully it's not too bad.

Instructions:

ch4, join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1)
ch4 to count as 1st dc+ch1. (cd, ch1) in ring 7 times so that you have 8 sections.

Round 2)
ch1, sc in same sp as joining *(2dc, ch3, 2dc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next dc.
repeat from * around. you will have 8 petals. join with sl st to 1st sc.

Round 3)
ch1, sc in same st as joining. dc in next 2 dc's, *(2dc, ch3, 2dc) in next ch3 sp.
dc in each of next 2 dc's, sc in next sc, dc in each of next 2 dc's*
repeat from * to * around, join with sl st to top of 1st sc.

Round 4)
sl st in 1st 2 sts.
ch2 to count as 1st hdc.
*sk i st, dc in next. (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 sp.
sk 1 dc, dc in next stitch. sk 1 dc, hdc in next stitch.
sc2tog over next 3 stitches (you will skip the sc stitch in the middle). hdc in next dc.
repeat from * around, ending with last sc2tog over 3 stitches.
join with sl st to top of 1st hdc.


It should look like this about now kinda:


Round 5)
sl st in next stitch
ch 4 to count as 1st dc+ch1, dc in same st.
*sk 1 st, hdc in next, ch1.
3sc in next ch3 sp, ch1. sk 1 st, hdc in next, sk 1 st.
(dc, ch1. dc) in next stitch. sk 3 sts, (dc, ch1, dc) in next.
repeat from * around, ending with (dc, ch1, dc), sk last 3 stitches.
join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch4.

Round 6)
ch4 to count as 1st dc+ch1. hdc in next ch1 sp.
*sc in next st and in next ch1 sp, sk next hdc, sc in next
sc in center sc of next 3sc corner. sc in next ch1 sp, sk next hdc
sc in next ch1 sp and in next dc, hdc in next ch1 sp.
dc in next dc, ch3, dc in next dc. hdc in next ch1 sp.
repeat from * around, ending with ch3
join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch4.


Then it sort of changes... after a while it poofs on the inside and you can define the points with light shaping



Round 7)
ch3 to count as 1st dc.
dc in next ch1 sp and in next sc.
sk 1 st, dc3tog over next 3 sts.
*sk 1 st, dc in each of next 3 sts, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 sp
dc in each of next 3 sts, sk 1 st, dc3tog over next 3 sts.
repeat from * around, ending with (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in last ch3 sp.
join with sl st to top of beg ch3.

Repeat Round 7 respectively, continue to desired size.

That is absolutely gorgeous!

I LOVE the original 8 pointed "star" before anything else was added to it. Can you develop that further into a square? I can crochet other people's lovely designs. I just cannot create designs myself. (sigh)

I haven't started this blanket yet and it looks beautiful but I am wondering what the cd means -(cd, ch1) in ring 7 times. I would like to start on this and see how it turns out.

Hi Cheri,
I don't know if anyone has gotten back to you yet about the (cd,ch1), but my guess is that it is a typo. It shoud read (dc,ch1) which means double crochet, chain 1
Hope this helps.
I too love this pattern.

Ok I love the pattern,,,,but I'm having a heck of a time understanding row 6, so many skips and I've tried it like 10 times... if anyone can help break it down a bit more..or easier..lol that would be great!

What does continue with 7 respectively. Does that mean keep adding 3 dc together as an increast or continue a double crochet in each stitch. It would help to define the abbreviations being used.

Row 7 is the worst. Really needs clarification.

Hi, Mari,

Thank you for the lovely pattern! Right now, I’m using Red Heart’s Super Soft Yarn in off white to crochet the blanket. By trial and error, I was able to make some corrections to the pattern and I also rewrote the instructions so that it would be easier for me to follow the next time I make this again. Here is what I came up with:

Ch4, join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1)
Ch4 to count as 1st dc+ch1, (dc, ch1) in ring 7 times, join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch4 (8 sections).

Round 2)
Ch1, sc in same sp as joining, *(2dc, ch3, 2dc) in next ch1 sp, sc in next dc; repeat from * around, join with sl st to 1st sc (8 petals).

Round 3)
Ch1, sc in same st as joining, dc in next 2 dc's, *(3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 sp, dc in each of next 2 dc's, sc in next sc, dc in each of next 2 dc's*; repeat from * to * around, join with sl st to top of 1st sc.

Round 4)
Sl st in 1st 2 sts, ch2 to count as 1st hdc, *Sk 1 st, dc in next. (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 sp, sk 1 dc, dc in next st, sk 1 dc, hdc in next st, sc2tog over next 3 sts (you will skip the sc stitch in the middle), hdc in next dc; repeat from * around, ending with last sc2tog over 3 stitches, join with sl st to top of 1st hdc.

Round 5)
Sl st in next stitch, ch 4 to count as 1st dc+ch1, dc in same st, *ch 1, sk 1 st, hdc in next st, ch1, 3sc in next ch3 sp, ch1, sk 1 st, hdc in next st, ch1, sk 1 st, (dc, ch1, dc) in next st, sk 3 sts, (dc, ch1, dc) in next st; repeat from * around, ending with (dc, ch1, dc), sk last 3 sts, join with sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch4.

Round 6)
Ch3 to count as 1st dc, hdc in next ch1 sp, *sc in next st and in next ch1 sp, sk next hdc, sc in next ch1 sp, sc in next sc in center sc of next 3sc corner, sc in next ch1 sp, sk next hdc, sc in next ch1 sp and in next dc, hdc in next ch1 sp, dc in next dc, ch3, dc in next dc, hdc in next ch1 sp; repeat from * around, ending with ch3, join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.

Round 7)
Ch3 to count as 1st dc, dc in next hdc and in next sc, sk 1 st, dc3tog over next 3 sts, *sk 1 st, dc in each of next 3 sts (note: these stitches will increase by 1 st for each additional row), (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next ch3 sp, dc in each of next 3 sts (note: these stitches will increase by 1 st for each additional row), sk 1 st, dc3tog over next 3 sts; repeat from * around, ending with (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in last ch3 sp, join with sl st to top of beg ch3.

Repeat Round 7 respectively, continue to desired size.
