Also finished

I think this is my new favorite yarn for baby blankets. It’s an acrylic so it can be washed and dried and it’s soft! Perfect for donation blankets.

It’s a variegated rather than a self striping yarn so I wasn’t sure how I would like it worked up in this ripple but I love how it looks. Obviously the stripes of color don’t go all the way across the rows but it works at least in this colorway!

Yarn is Lion Brand Ice Cream – Big Scoop and I used about 1.25 skeins. Next time I’ll have to get 3 skeins and I’ll have enough for two blankets. This one finished about 38 x 50 and I used a size (G) hook.

You can find the free ripple pattern at this link – she has a worsted and a sport weight version but I wanted one a bit smaller than her sport weight version so I chained 146 to start mine.


  1. Really pretty! Thanks for the yarn recommendation, I’m always looking for a soft yarn for baby blankets.

  2. Another really great afghan!
    I checked out that pattern when you posted it a while back – it’s my new favourite ripple pattern! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Love the ripple afghan pattern! I just picked up 3 skeins of the Lion Brand, but in a pink/purple/blue/white combo to make an afghan foe my niece. It does feel great to work with and is very soft!
