12 Point Round Ripple Baby Blanket Pattern

Sharing is caring!

This 12 Point Round Ripple Baby Blanket is perfect for a new baby. Just the right amount of blanket for a newborn receiving blanket. It’s soft and snuggly, and the ripple pattern makes it interesting to crochet.

Use basic stitches such as double crochet stitches to create this beautiful round baby blanket. Crocheting is a great way to relax and unwind. It’s also a great way to make lovely blankets too.

Crochet Child Lovey

The size of this round blanket is 23-inches around, which makes it a great option for a receiving blanket or a child’s lovey. There is just enough texture and softness with this mini blanket. The smaller size makes it perfect to take along anywhere and everywhere the child goes.

What is a Child’s Lovey?

It is a smaller crochet blanket that is used by children as something of comfort. Lovies can be smaller blankets just like larger blankets. Often, the larger size of baby blankets makes it cumbersome for a child to carry with them and snuggle with.

My daughter used her little lovey a few years.

Often, I will see crochet patterns with animals attached to them; however, she preferred the blanket itself. Therefore, I made this baby blanket without any amigurumi animal attached.

Round Crochet Pattern

This free pattern is worked in the round with a chevron pattern. Each round adds crochet stitches to allow the blanket to grow while crocheting the 12 points around.

A twelve-point star and can be made in a solid color or with various colors. It can be made as a baby blanket, lap blanket or throw. If you are interested in making the larger size, I have made a larger blanket using this same stitch pattern. The free crochet pattern is called the crochet 12-point star blanket.

Yarn Scraps Crochet Pattern

In just seventeen rounds, this baby blanket is complete. Therefore, this can be made quickly in one weekend.

It is also a great pattern to use up those yarn scraps. I used partial skeins of two different colors of yarns to create a pretty country color palette for this baby blanket. The color changes on each round. Crochet this in rainbow colors.

This round ripple patterns work well for any yarn weight.

I have made this with a fingering yarn and turned this into a tablecloth.

Here is another 12-Point Star Stitch project. The Crochet Gothic Center Piece was made with one skein of yarn.

Pattern Notes

It is important to keep the star points in the same place as you add each row. Therefore, counting the stitches is important in this pattern.

The pattern is not turned on after each round.

This pattern begins with a CH 4 and SL ST to form a ring. However, you can use a magic circle to start this crochet pattern.

Crochet over yarn ends to help minimize weaving in yarn ends and hold the yarn securely.

Always Chain 2 at the beginning of a round, not 3. This will help make the join less visible.

Starting with Round 5 and beyond, you will be completing between 2 rounds of the large shell and 1 round of the small shell. Adding stitches between the shells as needed and making the valley by skipping two stitches.

Crochet Baby Blankets

I love making baby blankets, they are always a welcomed gift at baby showers. They often work up rather quickly too.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful baby lovey/blanket. I was excited about the colour combinations I could use with this, and I also thought about using a varigaded yarn so I don't have to weave in yarn ends. {so tiresome, or maybe I'm just lazy} :) I also took note of the fact that you mentioned making a table cloth with this design. What a great idea! My daughter-in-law has a large round table in her kitchen that was her grandmothers. I could consider crocheting a tablecloth in cotton yarn for her--big project, but it's something I could do during the summer months. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hello Trish, I am so happy that you are loving this one as much as I did. It is amazing how much the same pattern can be transformed with different yarn colors and weights of yarn. Enjoy the pattern! Vicky
