Ripple Love

It's finished! My cheerful Rippley Ripple blanket for my big girl's bed. I absolutely adore it and I wish it was for me, but I've made a certain smaller person very happy.

It's in acrylic so it can be easily washed, and she's a really 'hot' kid so doesn't get too cold even in winter.

I took it into work to show off to the ladies there, the bunch of blokes we work with didn't quite get what they were oooing and ahhing over.

It was a bit of a fill-in project, and I made very slow progress over summer, but in the last few weeks it's been growing really quickly. It's 122cm x 105cm - not quite full length on the single bed, but plenty long enough to keep my girl snug.

Lucy from attic24 gave the clearest instructions in her tutorial for her Neat Ripple Pattern, which made it an absolute pleasure to make.

 Hmmmm what to make now???

That is sooo beautiful. I have not yet built up the guts to crochet a ripple blanket but who knows, maybe soon, especially after this pretty one of yours!

There is something irresistible about a ripple blanket & your colours are fantastic. I am hoping to finish my ripple blanket soon - I keep deciding that it isn't quite long enough.

It is gorgeous Kylie! I love it - especially your choice of colours. I've just started to learn crochet (OMG I am all thumbs!), so I am super impressed when I see something like this. Becks x

Honey it's truly magnificent! Look at the lovely over-the-fence pic - just stunning. I adore the colours you've used, and I too would be finding it hard to not keep it for myself!!!! I bet you're so proud of it. GORGEOUS!
