Both of my earlier Round Baby Ripples weighed about fourteen ounces, so I assumed that this twelve ounces of Jack Frost Wintuk Sport ‘Buttercup’ and two ounces of chartreuse would be enough for a third.
These yarns would provide six rows of yellow to every one row of green. To make things a little more exciting I thought I’d start with just four of yellow with one of green, repeat that twice, then increase to 5 rounds yellow and one green, and end by repeating 6 yellow, one green until I ran out of green.
I was pleasantly surprised by just how lovely the yellow feels; for being a long discontinued acrylic, it’s quite fluffy and soft!
Just nine rounds in I stopped to reconsider. I was wondering what a little of my precious ‘Petal Rose’ Caldor Sport Yarn, one of the only two pinks in my sport yarn stash,
might add to the mix.
O.K., so maybe the best place for it isn’t right next to the Chartreuse like that, lol, but with plenty of yellow between them. . .
Oooooh, yes, I like!!
Wow!! What a difference just one ounce of ‘Petal Rose’ makes in this baby ripple! I’m so glad that I changed my mind.
This springlike ripple measures 37″ in the valley, 43 at the points and weighs 13 1/2 ounces. The single round green edging goes * 1 sc, chain 2, skip 1 dc, and then repeat from the *. Plus, whenever I came to a valley I skipped two dc, but at the very tip of each point I didn’t skip any.
