Irish Wave Baby Blanket

I hope you enjoy the Free Irish Wave Baby Blanket!

The finished size of the baby blanket is approximately 46" x 32". Very generous for a baby blanket, and if you use the "soft" yarns, it is like a warm, squishy cloud. 


You can get the pattern free at Ravelry and Love Crochet!

You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.





One of the many beautiful things about this particular pattern is that you don't have to put a border on it when you're done, unless you want to. I chose not to, because the sides sort of finish themselves off. Plus, there is so much movement going on inside the bulk of the blanket, I didn't want anything to take away from it's beauty, or make it an eyesore.  I hope you enjoy this pattern!

  3. Quick question, I rarely use stitch markers for crochet, but it looks like this pattern needs them. Where did you place your stitch markers for this pattern?

    1. Hi Christine, I didn't use any stitch markers. Once you get the first row done after your base row, you spend all of your time counting because you are constantly skipping 6 stitches. And once you have the pattern established-it never varies.

  4. Oops! I must have read the pattern wrong. I read ch5, trc in sm space" and assumed sm = stitch marker. My bad. Thanks!

    I'm having trouble with the beginning. What sm space do you put the first trc in?

    1. Hi LaQuita- sm means 'same'. So same space.

      Ahhh, now that makes sense! I must have worked out in the sun too long! I've been looking for months for the perfect baby blanket. Couldn't find one until I saw this one. Thanks so much!!

  6. Hey there!
    The pattern is absolutely beautiful, I can't wait to start it. I want to make a larger blanket though, not a baby blanket. How many multiples should I do?
    For example, the last blanket I made told me to add multiples of 18 to the listed chain amount.

    1. Hi! If my math is right, each wave is 14 stitches!

  7. A lady at our local senior center asked me to make an afghan for a friend; we sat down to Ravelry and started browsing baby afghans but we didn't get past the second page. She saw your "Irish Wave" blanket and she told me to stop -- go no further -- that was the perfect one for her friend. I so totally agree -- it's lovely. I'm looking forwrd to working it up. [I swatched up a few rows to see what it would look like, and while i was orignally confused by the "sm", the minute the yarn hit the needles it was obvious what it meant -- sometimes our fingers know what our brains don't quite get at first. Thanks for the pattern :)

  10. I'm having problems figuring out the end of row 1 and getting the second row started. After racking my brain I finally figured sm sp, but I just can't get past that. Can you do a you tube video?

  15. Hi- I'm stuck between the 2nd and 3rd rows. When working my 3rd row, it doesn't look like the trebles are coming out in the correct spots. I shouldn't be doing a chain 5 at the end of row 2, correct? Thanks for your help.

  33. I just made the scarf version for my wife for Mother's Day thanks to your Ravelry pattern!
    I just learned to crochet about 3 weeks ago. The pattern was easy to follow and if you have the basic crochet stitches you can do this!

    You can see my project on Ravelry, Chancey81! Thanks again!
