Another one done! This time I used some purple and blue yarn to make a sort of snowflake looking blanket. This was meant to be a gift but I think I’ll keep it instead! I added the white rows every three rows to break up the colour and also to reduce the amount of yarn Continue reading Finished: 12 point ripple 3
After making the first blanket I had enough left over yarn to make another! I decide to reverse the colours to see what different effect it would make. Even though they both used the same pattern and colours they looked really different! I love how the colours have long transitions! These blankets took about 4 days of make each so super fast! The last couple of rounds take about an hour to go around, but the effect is amazing!
After getting a bit sick of corner to corner blankets I decided to make a 12 point ripple. I’ve used this pattern before and after you get past about 10 rows it’s really simple and easy! The pattern is free! And only uses double crochet and chain. These type of blankets look good with multiple colour so you can see the ripple pattern. I had some Ice Magic yarn in 8 colours with long transitions so thought it might look a bit nice. It turned out awesome! I did 4 rows of each colour and a total of 8 colours. The final round took just over 1 ball of yarn so be prepared if you want to make your own.
This is a beautiful vintage inspired blanket. I love looking at old photos of crochet and I was trying to get that 70’s vibe into one blanket.
The wool is super soft and only 5ply so it’s really light and airy. This meant it took forever for it to get big enough. When I ended it it was taking an hour to do one round. I am not patient and demand instant results. I’ve still got some wool left and I might finalize the purple edging if I get really bored or have a sudden inspiration.
I am using the pattern from the Crochet Crowd. Its really easy to understand as they provide video, written and drawn instructions.
