Ribbon & Ruffles Blanket

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 8:15 PM



I like to make blankets for special wee friends.   Haley is a beautiful little girl who was born last month and this is the blanket I designed for her.


I had recently gotten a new book called Triple Play Pattern Stitches by Leisure Arts and Stitch Eight seemed perfect for this project.   My favorite yarn for baby blankets is Lion Brand Cotton-Ease and since her nursery was pink and yellow I had the perfect yarns in my stash, Banana Cream and Bubblegum, two of the discontinued colors.   I was then on the hunt for ribbon and when I couldn't find anything locally I turned to Etsy and got exactly what I envisioned.


If you like my blanket and would like to make one for yourself you will need the following:


Triple Play Pattern Stitches by Leisure Arts for Stitch Eight instructions

1100 yds. worsted weight yarn (blanket color)

300 yds. worsted weight yarn (border color)

Crochet hook size J/6.0 mm

5 yds 5/8" ribbon


With blanket color, Ch. 128


Following the instructions for Stitch Eight from Triple Play Pattern Stitches complete 88 rows and slip stitch to end off.


Attach border color at corner and crochet border as follows joining with sl st at the end of each round:

2 rounds of sc in banana, [1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc] in each corner 

2 rounds of sc in bubblegum, [1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc] in each corner

1 round of [dc, ch 2, sk next sc]

1 round of sc in bubblegum, [1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc] in each corner

1 round ruffle; 3 dc, 2 dc around with 5 dc in each ch 2 corner.


Weave ribbon through round of [dc, ch 2, sk next sc], tie bow in corner.   It is important that you stitch bow with needle and thread at corners to secure it.

What is stitch eight called? I'm new to crocheting and do not recognize it from the photo. I would like to try and make this blanket it's really cute. The only info missing is what kind of stitch to use for the 88 rows.

Thank you!

It is called just Stitch 8 and if you want to make this blanket purchasing the book Triple Pattern Play Stitches. Since it copyrighted and not a free stitch pattern I could not print the exact instructions in how to do the stitch as that would be stealing another person's work.

I love the ribbon! It ties the colors together nicely. Is the bow only on one corner? Does ribbon lay flat in the corners that aren't tied?

I cannot infringe on the copyright and post the pattern online, you would need to purchase the book to get the actual pattern.

I adore this blanket. It is so beautiful and your work is incredible. I just purchased the triple pattern play stitches book and am excited to get my hands on stitch 8. Thank you for posting the link for us.;)
Of course, I also love the colors you chose. Isn't my crazy luck that they have been discontinued?!

I have a question for you about your border. In the ruffle round, when you say 3dc, 2dc...is that 3dc in same stitch and then 2dc in the next stitch all the way around? I got the part where the 5dc go in the corners, in the ch 2 sp from the previous round, it's just that 3dc, 2dc that has me confused a little.

Thank you for posting your beautiful masterpiece to share with us. That's one super lucky wee little person.

I also have trouble interpreting the ruffle round where it says "3 dc, 2 dc around" . Thank you so much, I love the blanket!

You figured out the ruffle correctly, 3 dc in one stitch, then 2 dc in the next, alternating around with the 5 dc in the corners.

I have completed the blanket and ready to start on the border. I am wondering if I crochet one or two sc in each of the ch-2 spaces. Thank you.

The first picture looks like there is a double ruffle. The last picture looks as if there's one. If there are two, how do you do the 2nd ruffle?
