After crocheting eighty of the same kind of ripple since January 2011, I finally decided I was ready to try a different pattern!
I’ve wanted to make a ripple with alternating large and small points for a long time and I thought that I could probably figure out how to make one about the same size as my old ripples. They normally have six peaks with ten double-crochet stitches in each uphill or downhill run. Instead, this one has nine peaks; five large peaks with nine double-crochet stitches on each side and four smaller ones with four stitches per side.
I love the way the stripes seem to wriggle across the blanket! It came out about thirty-five inches wide like my old ripples, as I hoped it would.
I’m considering Wriggly Ripple as its name. What do you think??
It’s quite a change from the ripples I’m used to making.
In all the excitement I almost forgot… I crocheted one row of white, then two rows of Red Heart Super Saver Light Raspberry and three of RHSS Burgundy to make Sweet Cherry Sundae.
Do you want to make a Wriggly Ripple too? Shall I take the time to write out and test the pattern?
