Crochet Motif of a Sea Foam Stitch/Ocean Waves
I decided to share this Crochet Motif of the Sea Foam Stitch (also known as Ocean Waves) today. I’m always on the look out for new motif’s I can use for various projects. Since it’s summer now and the weather has warmed up I wanted to a summertime baby blanket. I will be using cotton yarn. Although it’s still summer there are times you still need a blanket to cover up a sleeping baby. I didn’t want to make something too heavy. I went thru all my previous projects to look for something that would fit the bill. I really liked this one. Some books call it Sea foam and some call it ocean waves.
Here is a sample (2 pattern repeat) of the sea foam motif. I made one of these blankets a few years ago. You can use any size hook and type of yarn. Just make sure the hook is appropriate for the yarn weight. Since this will be a baby blanket I used a weight 3 cotton yarn and a G hook. You can use whatever hook and yarn you prefer. I used 2 colors and changed color on row 6 of pattern. You can use as many colors as you like or stay with one solid color. Using multiple colors is a good way to use up your yarn stash.
