Between Ridges Blanket a Free Crochet Pattern

Between Ridges Blanket a Free Crochet Pattern

Between the Ridges Blanket is so cozy and comfy that you’ll never want to leave. Snuggle up with a warm drink and good book or ready to those little sweeties under your handmade blanket. Whatever your style of relaxing is, Between the Ridges will keep you toasty snug.

This squishy blanket is made with worsted weight yarn and your favorite 6mm hook. I chose Paintbox Aran in Melon Sorbet, which is a gorgeous peachy orange. My favorite thing about this blanket is that the border is made as you go! I kinda love it.

I always enjoy having a large crochet project going “in the background,” something I can pick up and continue here and there throughout my day. I have loved working on this beautiful blanket. The repeat is simple and easy to memorize too-a bonus for tired moms, 😴 or any of us who like to crochet at night.

It’s been a while since I crocheted a blanket that we get to keep. But I think this one will be much loved in our house this season.

Finished Dimensions: 48” x 44”

Adjustments

To change the size of your blanket use the gauge given below. For every 4″ of increase or decrease you would like in width, add or subtract 12 stitches. Likewise, to lengthen or shorten your blanket add or subtract rows. For every 9 rows you add or subtract you will gain or lose 4″ in length. Remember any changes will effect the amount of yarn needed, plan accordingly.

Gauge
