My ripple blanket is coming along nicely.
When I shared progress last time, I had only worked about 6 colours. Now I’ve worked 13 colours. Each colour is two rows. I still have a red, another pink, a royal purple and a brown to add. Then I’ll repeat all the colours randomly.
Still loving it!
You can find the details and link to the pattern in this post.
Update: See my finished blanket!
I love it – so bright and colourful. I think you would have loved the “coloured feather and fan” cardigan that was the feature of the workshop I did with Liz Gemmell on the weekend!
Sounds interesting, Lynne
Well done, CraftyMummy! I’d forgotten about ripple blankets – Rob’s Nana made these for all her grandchildren, I’ve seen one in gradations of greens, oranges, browns [very 70’s colours of course LOL]. If my girls see it they’ll be requesting one in rainbow colours!! Glad you’ve picked up a hook – I love how fast crochet comes together/grows… it’s the reason I prefer it over knitting!!
Thanks, Shelle. I haven’t done a lot of crochet but I’m finding it very soothing on my long nights. Also cosy as the weather gets way to cold here!
Looking good CM. Love to see the progress on line. Hopefully will see the progress in person.
BTY found some interesting lollies in Tesco yesterday- Mr Happy ! I did buy a packet but had to taste test first 😉
Glad to give you something to read ;o) You know you’re welcome to visit any weekend at the drop of a hat. Mr Happy was telling me the other day how he’d be happy to sleep on the floor when you come to visit again – generous boy!
Is it possible to make a ripple blanket withe 3.5 needle?
I don’t have a 3.5 hook to look at but in theory you should be able to. The stitches will be smaller because the hook is smaller, and you may find you need to use a finer yarn but if I were you, I’d have a go and see how it looks.
