When I sat down to begin my first V-Stitch Ripple I thought I must have made a math error. I need 221 stitches in the beginning chain, really? But my Wriggly Ripple only takes 135!
I double-checked the math, yup, still came to 221, and sceptically began to trust the Express V-Stitch Ripple pattern.
My beginning chain was nearly six-feet long! – for a three-foot wide blanket.
After the foundation row I was relieved to see it had shrunk to 42 inches.
And after the first ‘real’ row I’m down to my desired thirty-six width. Yay!!
Because of the openness of the V-stitches, I’m not even going to try to work over the yarn ends. I don’t think I’ll mind weaving them in after; I can already see this is going to be a very pretty blanket, worth the extra bother.
Thanks again, Mara. Great pattern!
Hoping to pick up some crochet speed now that I’ve finished a few rows. Woooh-a-wooooh!! Here comes the Express!
