Ripple of the Week #25

Here’s a simple color pattern: four pink rows followed by one row of white, then four more pink rows followed by one of purple. I used several subtly different pink yarns, randomly changing from one to another. This is more interesting to crochet and more interesting looking than if I had chosen to use just one pink yarn. It’s a great way to use up scrap yarns besides!

    Pleasingly pink is definitely pleasing 🙂 It’s lovely, perfect for a little girl! Love the little purple flowers…what are they?

      Thank you Edith! I was imagining this one being chosen by a little girl too.
      The flowers are called creeping phlox, and they do creep – start with a little patch and, if it’s happy, it spreads quite quickly! Can also be found in white, pale pink, and periwinkle.
