Pattern Description:

Is this the most fun you can have with garter stitch? Quite possibly.

I love the look of crocheted ripple blankets but they have always defeated me. I love feather and fan patterns but wanted something a little less feminine for my son and I love garter stitch - and 'lo - Garter Ripple Squish was born.

Garter - for lovely, soothing, dependable garter stitch - my first choice for baby blankets.

Ripple - for the fun, easy to work pattern

Squish - the name given to his new blanket by my son.

The blanket, as worked in dk yarn is on the smallish side - approx 24.5" by 27". This size is ideal for use in prams, cribs, car seats etc but it could easily be made larger by using worsted or aran weight yarn on larger needles or by adding pattern repeats. Each pattern repeat adds about 3" horizontally across the blanket.

Use a mixture of yarns from your stash, go for bold contrasting stripes or more subtle combinations - the choice is yours.

Have fun with the GRS. I look forward to seeing your creations.


Just to add that I have amended my usual copyright statement for this pattern. I am happy for knitters to make and sell blankets using this pattern, as long as it is for charity and not for personal gain.
