lion brand® ice cream® big scoop® winsome crochet baby afghan

Fall in love with the beautifully blended hues of this Winsome Baby Afghan! All you’ll need to crochet your own is one skein of Lion Brand® Big Scoop® yarn – it’s the same soft, self-striping yarn as Ice Cream®, but with even more yardage. Ready to get started? Then check out the free pattern below!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: About 29" x 29" (73.5 x 73.5 cm).

GAUGE: One ripple = about 4" (10 cm) measured from peak to peak; be sure to check your gauge.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

   -  Cl (Cluster): Yarn over, insert hook in indicated ch or sp and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, *yarn over, insert hook in same ch or sp and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

   -  Afghan is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it’s important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
   -  The ripple pattern consists of alternating ch-3 sp “peaks” and skipped sp “valleys”. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) shells are worked into the ch-3 sp peaks, and a sp is skipped at valleys. 
Step 2

AFGHAN:

Ch 164.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 163 sts.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc in this row and in all following rows) turn, sk first 3 sc, (3 dc in next sc, sk next 2 sc) 3 times, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next sc, *(sk next 2 sc, 3 dc in next sc) twice, sk next 2 sc, Cl in next sc, sknext 4 sc, Cl in next sc, (sk next 2 sc, 3 dc in next sc) twice, sk next 2 sc, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next sc; rep from * to last 12 sc, sk next 2 sc, (3 dc in next sc, sk next 2 sc) 3 times, dc in last sc – 7 ripples at the end of this row.

Note: Sts are now worked in sps between sts instead of into the tops of sts as usual.

Row 3: Ch 3, turn, sk sp between first dc and first 3-dc group, 3 dc in each of next 3 sps between 3-dc groups, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp, *3 dc in each of next 2 sps between 3-dc groups, Cl in next sp between 3-dc group and Cl, sk next sp between clusters, Cl in next sp between Cl and 3-dc group, 3 dc in each of next 2 sps between 3-dc groups, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp; rep from * to last four 3-dc groups, 3 dc in each of next 3 sps between 3-dc groups, dc in sp between last 3-dc group and turning ch.

Rep Row 3 until piece measures about 29" (73.5 cm) from beginning.  

Fasten off.
