I’m simply revealing my first Jacob’s Ladder Ripple today, but on Friday I’ll tell you the rest of its story, which will include a photo how-to, this blanket’s ‘before’ pictures and my solutions.
Trust me – this blanket did not always look so good – oh, the troubles we’ve gone through together! sigh.
But we triumphed and now, not only is it a pretty blanket, but it has flat, even points too! This is more significant than you can know.
With 87 rows, my blanket turned out about 56″ long. At 36″ wide it’s a little narrower than the pattern’s 39″ size Small, a sign that I worked more tightly than expected.
No better name occurred to me while I crocheted, so I’m still just calling it “Bobble-less #2”, the second ripple I’ve made with the pale rose yarn I unraveled from a thrift store sweater I called ‘Bobbles!’.
P.S. These are the yarns I’ve chosen to crochet one more blanket for the Ripple Mania CAL.
I’m enjoying a very simple pattern, Marie Segares’ Ripple Mania Eyelet Ripple, a petite-scaled ripple with only four dcs on each side of every point. If this sounds interesting to you, go download the pattern now while it’s free; in one week it goes on sale as part of an ebook.
Thanks to the long Thanksgiving weekend, I’m confident that I’ll finish my first Eyelet Ripple before the CAL deadline of Nov. 28th. Soon I’ll be sharing with you how many pattern repeats and rows it took for me to make a kid-sized one.
