This simple ripple pattern makes a bold statement without using increases or decreases. Choose three colors and carry yarn tails up the edges to minimize the number of ends to weave in. Cover the yarn tails with a decorative border. When the blanket is finished, rotate it so the borders are at the top and bottom for stunning vertical wavy stripes.
This pattern is also available as part of a kit on Craftsy here.
