Ripple Blanket Tah-Dah.....


Yeeesssss, I've finished my ripple blanket after 5 months and 39 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK, you can see the colours I've used here. It was never going to be a short term project but it was well worth the time it took, I just love it. I've crocheted smaller blankets but this is my first large project measuring 47" X 90", I can't get over how heavy it is. I started with a chain of 222 and have crocheted 220 rows, using Attic 24  Neat Ripple Pattern, Lucy has written a great tutorial which is very easy to follow.




It is so warm and snugly, Paige and I love to lie under it whilst we watch the T.V.in the evening, in fact, I've got it over me now as I'm writing this post. In a way I'm quite sad I've finished it as I found it very therapeutic with the continuous flow of the pattern, so I have decided to make another one when I have finished other projects.
Thanks for looking.
Night, Night

Oh Deb it's absolutely amazing! You must be so very proud of yourself. I love the colours, I love the size and I admire your patience! It's a lovely rhythmic pattern isn't it - although in saying that I still managed to lose concentration and muck up a few rows. Thank goodness crochet is easy to undo and redo!

Have a fabulous weekend! Enjoy your TV viewing under your delicious snuggly blanket!
