By now you should have you strips assembled and a single layer of biscuit surrounding your baby blanket. Next we will begin the base for the ripple border. We will be working anticlockwise for these instructions.
Take your Olive yarn and work a series of treble crochet around the entire blanket in each stitch.
Starting anywhere along the bottom edge of the blanket, away from the corners, with a ch3 for your first treble, work tc around the entire blanket.
Miss the middle two stitches at the base of your points and add a chain 3 at the tip of each point.
Once you reach the first dc, slip stitch and tie off.
Onto the peekaboo layer
With biscuit, or cream if using up your carousel leftovers, join your yarn in the first stitch after the bottom left corner.
Create a double crochet for your first stitch, then chain 3, work a double crochet into the third stitch along.
Repeat the chain 3 and dc until you reach the bottom right corner. Adjust your spacing in the final chain 3 gap if needed to reach the corner using a dc.
Ch3 to get around the corner then repeat (dc, ch1) until you reach the stitch next to the bottom stitch of the dip.
Again double crochet to secure in the stitch before the dip and double crochet into the second stitch after the dip.
Repeat this until you return to the start and slip stitch a chain 3 into the first stitch.
Double crochet with a chain 3 bridging three stitches between each dc. Aim to have a chain 3 at both the base and the tip of each point. Remember to skip 2 stitches at the base of the dips using a chain 3 to bridge the gap.
If you need to adjust your stitch count slightly to make these tips and dips align go ahead. Once adjusted you won’t need to worry again.
Now we move on to working the teal layer
In any ch3 space on the bottom join and ch3 as your first treble, tc2 more in the chain space,* ch1, tc3 in the ch sp* Rep * to * until the botton left corner
Once more you will be using a ch3 to move around the corners, then continue on with tc3, ch1 in the chain spaces until you reach the bottom of the dip.
Tc3, tc3 in each of the last chain spaces before and after the dip, then return to the standard ch1, tc3 repeated to the tip.
Continue on until you reach the start then slip stitch into the top of the ch3, tie off.
Repeat another layer of peekaboo in biscuit, or cream
The final green is a layer of Pistachio, which repeats the teal layer instructions
Onto the last layer of biscuit or cream, starting anywhere on the bottom row, dc in each stitch with a ch3 at each tip and skipping the centre 2 stitches in the dips. Join the ends with a slip stitch.
Weave in the end and you are done.
