For a long time I was admiring all those pretty Ripple Blankets out there in Blogland and on Ravelry.
Finally I´ve started one too, following Lucys of Attic24s pattern of Neat Ripple Pattern. Andrea also made a very nice one.
I´m using acrylic mix yarn from stash and some cheap one I´ve bought at a local store. Most yarns are worsted or aran weight and I use a 5mm hook for the ripple pattern. I´ve started with a 227 sts long chain which turned out much longer than expected (no, I didn´t swatch first). So maybe this will be the long side and I crochet the wide now. We will see.
There is no deadline for this blanket. I´m doing it just for fun and when I´m in the mood for a bit of mindless happy colourful crochet :)
Have a nice and happy Monday!
