Wavy Crochet Blanket Pattern

Adapted from THIS hat pattern and THIS blanket pattern





20 week blanket size
3 colors of yarn
Color 1 = in between little stripe
Color 2 = first wavy stripe
Color 3 = second wavy stripe

Ch 52
Row 1 - color 1: sc across

Row 2 - color 2: sc across
Row 3 - color 2: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 4 - color 2: *sc 3, hdc 2, dc 5, hdc 2* repeat * to * across (ending with sc 3), ch 1, turn 

Row 5 - color 1: sc across

A
Row 6 - color 3: *dc 3, hdc 2, sc 5, hdc 2* repeat * to * across(ending with dc 3) ch 1, turn
Row 7 - color 3: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 8 - color 3:  *dc 3, hdc 2, sc 5, hdc 2* repeat * to * across(ending with dc 3) ch 1, turn this is a repeat of row 6 - all your stitches should match up with the stitches on row 6 - sc on top of sc, hdc on hdc etc.)

Row 9 - color 1: sc across


B
Row 10 - color 2: *sc 3, hdc 2, dc 5, hdc 2* repeat * to *  across (ending with sc 3), ch 1, turn
Row 11 - color 2: sc across, ch 1, turn
Row 12 - color 2: *sc 3, hdc 2, dc 5, hdc 2* repeat * to * across (ending with sc 3), ch 1, turn (this is a repeat of row 2 - all your stitches should match up with the stitches on row 10 - sc on top of sc, hdc on hdc etc.)

Row 13 - color 1: sc across

Repeat A and B until blanket is at desired length - I usually go until it's square for angel baby blankets. 

For your last two rows you'll want to do the last two rows of the next A or B section to make it less wavy on the top. So if the last full color you did was B then you'll do row 7 and 8 after your row 13. If the last full color you did was A then you'll do row 11 and 12 after your row 9




To make a bigger blanket start with a multiple of 12, add 3, add a ch 1 and turn.
