Rippled Baby Blanket - Corrections included

Rippled Baby Blanket

This is NKYKnitter’s rewritten version of MoreThanOneWay’s Ripple Baby Blanket to fix errors which were in the original pattern

Here it is! It's a modification of the Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl*, but I made enough changes that it's probably worth writing down.

Any pleasing combination of yarn and needles will work. I used Dream in Color Classy in Beach Fog and Summer Sky (2 skeins each), and size US7 DPNs and circular needles.

m1: I used the EZ m1, which is basically a twisted yarn over. Form a backwards loop over the right needle with the working yarn. Depending on which way you form the loop, you may need to knit that stitch through the back loop when you pass it again on the next row.
pattern: k2tog 3 times, k1, (m1, k1) 6 times, k2tog 3 times (Increases and Decreases Equal)
increase row: *k1, m1, knit to marker, m1, slip marker, repeat from *
(Increases 8 stitches per round)
pattern row: k1, m1, k(
0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15), pattern (1, 3, 5, 7, etc.) times, k(0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15), m1, slip marker ( Increases 8 stitches per round)

Use the first number in each set of parentheses on the first pattern repeat. On each subsequent repeat, use the next number in
pink and the first number in blue, until all of the pink numbers have been used. Then repeat using the second number in blue. So you’ll knit six pattern repeats with one pattern, and then six with the three patterns, etc.

Continue until you reach the desired size. I cast off after plain knit row after the k0, pattern seven times, k0 row, and my blanket was 32" square unblocked, 40" square after blocking.

Cast on 2 stitches to left hand needle. *k1, k2tog through the back loop, slip 2 stitches back to left needle, repeat from * until all stitches are bound off. Weave in loose ends and block.


Pattern Corrections/Notes collected for other Ravelry Users:

All the notes about the pattern errors are very intimidating and confusing. Part of the reason is that you must be “into” the pattern before you can understand the corrections mentioned. I will add that all of the set up rows are correct and also all of the rest of the directions for the “one pattern repeat”. It is not until you have done all rows and increasing rows once, and that is well into the pattern, that you will need to make a small correction. Then you will see when the “three pattern repeat” comes into play you will see that on the “zero” row you need to make the correction. Great pattern…..possible case of TMI on Ravelry.

I did the twisted increases in the pattern and did the open make one increases on either side of the markers.

The cast on to close the center was easy fun and really made my center look nice. Feel free to send any questions my way and I will help in anyway that I can.

Notes

The pattern is a little confusing at first, but once you get into it, it makes sense.

There is a mistake in the pattern: Each complete repeat of the pattern only adds 18 stitches to the beginning and end of side, but 19 stitches are needed to complete a ripple. So, on the {k1, m1, k(0), pattern (3, 5, 7, etc.),k(0), m1} rounds only, you’ll be two stitches short on each side, and 8 stitches short around the whole blanket.

What the pattern actually says:
k1, m1, k0, k2tog 3 times, k1, (m1, k1) 6 times, k2tog 3 times, k0, m1

But, there are only five stitches in each of the spots where the 3 k2tog’s are done, not six. So,

My solution:
k1, m1, k0, k1, k2tog 2 times, k1, (m1, k1) 6 times,k2tog 2 times, k1, k0, m1

Overall, not a bad pattern once you overcome the mistake. This wasn’t my favorite yarn, but the blanket finished up nicely.


Notes

Love, love, love this pattern. It’s a great pattern, the only thing I found wrong with it was on the second, third and forth rounds of the pattern repeat, the count is off by 2 stitches, so instead of k2tog 3x, you have to k1, k2tog 2x, and that way your ripples all line up evenly

Notes:
There’s a mistake in the pattern, the pattern stitch as written is a multiple of 19 and in the repeat of 6 rows there are 3 sts added to each side of the pattern, so you can’t get a full pattern repeat from a multiple of the 6 row repeats. So the number of sts at the sides of the pattern changes even more complicatedly than the pattern says.

Notes

I saw a lot of people mentioning that the pattern doesn’t quite work out. It is only 2 stitches short on rows where you add more pattern repeats, (If you actually count up the stitches in the written pattern you will see why), but if you sneak those 2 increases in there the row before it works out perfectly

k1,m1, k0, {k2tog, k1, k2tog} k1, (m1,k1) 6x, k2tog 6x, k1, (m1, k1) 6x, k2tog 6x, k1,
(m1, k1) 6x, {k2tog, k1, k2tog}, k0, m1
