Textured Ruffles Baby Blanket

Who knew crocheting a baby blanket with some three-dimensional flair would be so easy? The Textured Ruffles Baby Blanket is worked in the back loop only to give you anchoring spaces to work up and out with some fun ruffles.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: 30” x 50”

Gauge: Gauge not critical

Materials

Yarn: Red Heart Soft (100% acrylic; 256 yards [234 meters]/141 grams): Off White (A, 2 skeins), Teal (B, 2 skeins), Sea Foam (C, 2 skeins), Grape (D, 1 skein)
Hook: US size H/8 (5.0 mm) hook

Pattern Notes

Beginning ch 3 of rows will count as the first dc of each row for the blanket.
By using the back loop, the front loop will remain unworked and create a ridge that will be used to add the ruffles.
Ruffles are added every 2 rows.

    Hi Mary,

    This pattern is a baby blanket pattern, and we do have the dimensions of the finished piece noted in the pattern itself.
    I hope that helps!

    I already used 2skiens of white yarn and only half way thru the blanket. I think its going to be 4 skiens of the white. The picture you show is deceiving of how big the blanket is. You should show the right size of it
