Let’s start at this ripple’s very beginning, shall we? My dear reader, Verneta, bought this large rectangular crocheted blanket for its yarn, just $5.00 at GoodWill. What a find!
By adding a third color, she now has more than enough yarn to make Two afghans! Yay!!
I feel fortunate that Verneta has chosen to use my new Wriggly Ripple pattern, especially considering how many other great afghan patterns to pick from! She’s already past its half-way point with twenty-eight inches finished. Zoom, zoom, Verneta! Here’s a quote from comments she has left as she crochets her Wriggly, “The pattern is wonderful! Great instructions and it goes so fast.” and “So fun!!! Love your pattern, Linda. It’s fast to do … up 9, down 9, up 4, down 4. Yeah!” Pretty good endorsements, don’t you think? lol.
Using an H hook, her Wriggly, so far known as ‘Waves of Blue’, is about thirty-eight inches wide. As always, classic 3, 2, 1 striping comes out looking great!
Waves of Blue is sure to cheer and comfort the child at Target House, a long-term stay facility at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, who receives it! Verneta also crochets lap afghans for patients at the Veteran’s Hospital and scarves/hat/cowls for the homeless. Hers is one busy hook. See it Flash!!
