Anyone have a particular favourite ripple knitting pattern?

I'm trying to find a variety of patterns and my make a blanket for my sorority sister, who is having a baby, YAY!!
I really wanna make this special for her, because she miscarried her last baby and she's pretty fragile right now..

I kinda like the look of this one, but it may not be baby enough... (of course I will choose baby appropriate colours)

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

What a wonderful thing to do and so thoughtful.

As for your links, the first one is more a chevron than a ripple pattern. The second one is a true ripple - and they are very easy and quick to do and different kinds of yarns give different effects - I've done them with boucle, with fluffy type yarns and with teensy tiny yarns on big needles - lovely every time.

I like the true ripple - the yarn will make it very special, I'm sure, as will the thought behind it. Do make sure it is a machine washable yarn, though! Babies spit up and such a lot!

(Oh, and I'm sure you won't give it to her until she is sure she will be able to carry this precious one to term)
