Ripple Crochet Blanket

How good is CROCHET?!

Really…I am a bit of a nut for it.  A little bit Nana I know, but it works so well as a relaxing ‘unwind’ activity for me.

I usually get stuck into it each evening, once the kids are in bed.  I’ve been making heaps of home decor stuff, from lampshades…to floor mats….and scarves.  I am truly knocking myself out with the stuff!  I’ll publish more pics and how-to posts in the next few weeks – so stay tuned dear readers!

Now to today’s subject (or this year / two year’s subject – because let’s be realistic It’s likely going to take me that long to complete).

It is my RIPPLE CROCHET BLANKET – which is presently at a nice length to cover ONLY my feet. But I’m working on that.

I am loving this ripple pattern – available right here from Attic24. Lucy has provided the pattern, detailed stitch instruction and excellent images – all for free!  Well worth a look and try.

I’m using 10 ply Country Aran from Cleakheaton – and it is divine.  As a bonus it’s nice and thick…so my blanket is growing quickly!  I’d definitely recommend using 8ply yarn or above just for the quick progress alone!

Are you into crochet?  What are you making at the moment?

I love your feedback, so keep it coming!
