Granny Ripple Baby Blanket Finished


I am using a "G" hook and Simply Soft yarn in Brites. The Pattern comes from a small booklet called Nursery Favorites by Leisure Arts. But I simplified the pattern and if you want to do that also or prefer not to buy on line you can use this pattern.

The colors are Coconut, Mango, Watermelon, Lemonade, Lymelite, and Blue Mint. The pattern I used was five rows of each color and two rows of Coconut separating each color. I worked my way up to the center (blue) and as you can see I did a double center and then worked my way back down the color spectrum. I am pleased with it and hope they will be also but I would call it more of a crib blanket at this point since it is so large.

Ghost, OUT!

That is so pretty!! Great job... I love the colors... I made a ripple for my son in rainbow colors many years ago, only I went the other direction (the colors run vertically instead of horizontally) and they weren't these bright colors that you've got on this one - so cheerful! Anyway, I did the same thing in the middle with the doubling up and going with the colors in reverse order, I love how it turned out. Yours is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!!

OH! And I keep forgetting to tell you that I LOVE the new look on your blog! All these hooks around the outside and the cute little crocheted hearts are just wonderful! So bright and happy looking! I am sooooo ready for the winter to be over - this blog helps, with all the fun colors! Thank you!

I second the comment about the background. I love it. Wherever did you find it? If you said, I missed it. I also love this ghan. The colors go so well together and are so bright and cheerful. Made me think of sorbet for some reason. I would guess the granny pattern makes the ripple work up faster. I made one many years ago. Might be time for another.

GORGEOUS!!!

And thanks for missing me :)

I'm working on something non-yarn related that's taking up a lot of time, but I'll be back playing with string. I promise.
