This Ripple Pastel Baby Blanket is one project I'd like to do because it is done in single crochets. I have another similar project also done in single crochets which I can't wait to start as well.

I've finished a ripple baby blanket very similar to this Ripple Pastel Baby Blanket featured here. I enjoyed doing this project as it was my first ripple project and I used the colors that are exactly indicated here. You can use a combination of colors that you like and you can make this in your desired size. This project is perfect christening or baby shower gift for a baby boy or a baby girl.
