ALUMNI CLASS! Crochet 102: My First Baby Blanket: Rainbow Ripple with Penelope VIRTUAL CLASS



This is a virtual class.  Zoom information will be sent prior to the first class. 


Blankets do not have to be rectangles!  In this virtual class, you will build on basic crochet stitches to make a star shaped blanket.  The Rainbow Ripple blanket is approximately 45” diameter, but may be made in a larger size by adding extra rows.  (Please note that yarn requirements will change if the pattern is made in a different size.)  This pattern is just challenging enough for an advanced beginner ready to take it to the next level and for intermediate crocheters who are interested in a meditative project.

What you will learn:

  • How to read a written crochet pattern

  • Magic loop review

  • Chainless double crochet stitch

  • Crochet increases and decreases

  • Changing yarn colors and weaving-in ends as you go

  • Finishing and blocking


Materials needed before the first class:

  • Rainbow Ripple pattern

  • 1150-2000 yds of worsted weight or DK weight yarn (for a lightweight blanket) in at least 2 colors (See shop sample made using Berroco Vintage DK.)

  • Size H - 5.0 mm crochet hook 

  • Stitch markers that open

  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

  • A pen or pencil to take notes and a highlighter marker
