Bobbles!

I found this bobblicious crocheted sweater at Sal’s (Salvation Army thrift store).

It was only $3.00 (at half-price)…

for three pounds of acrylic yarn, including several mini scrap balls for my mini-scrap granny.

It will be fun to see how many ripples I make from it. I’m guessing at least six, but maybe as many as eight! Hmmm, does this sound like a ripple series? It’s been over nine months since I finished the Candy Cane ripple series.

I think I’ll call it the Bobble-less series. In strong contrast to the sweater that gave its yarn for them, the ripples in this series will have No bobbles. lol.

I’ve already gathered this coordinated mess of yarns for the first Bobble-less ripple.

I can’t wait to get started!

    Linda,
    Whatever you come up with, it will be beautiful.
    The colors kinda remind me of butternut squash & Pumpkins. (Nice for Fall.)

    • Thank you for your faith in my crochet ability! I hope it will be a beautiful ripple too. 🙂

      Glad that you like my newest ripple’s colors. Funny, they made me think of summery melons. HAha. Guess I’m not quite ready for it to be Fall.

  2. I like to see the retro yarns you find and use. The other thing that’s really cool about your ripples is your use of chenilles and fun yarn in the midst of worsted. Are you able to use the same hook size and make the same number of stitches with the larger yarn?

    • I only unravel chenille sweaters made from worsted or lighter yarns, so that’s not been a problem.
      And I do so few rows in a ripple out of fun fur, that even though it’s usually labeled as a bulky yarn, I just stick with an H hook. I remember that I once alternated dc and chain stitches to lighten the rows I crocheted out of a very dense fur yarn. It was easy to go back to all dc stitches for all the rows made with regular yarn.
