My dear husband wanted to call this Round Baby Ripple ‘Buttercups’ even though buttercups are actually a Very Bright YELLOW, so I tacked on the words ‘Baby Yellow’. I figure a plant hybridizer somewhere in the world must have come up with a light yellow buttercup!
I started out with at least seven ounces each of Red Heart Soft Baby in ‘Powder Yellow’, TLC Baby, which is also from Red Heart, in ‘Powder Blue’, and a variegated yarn of yellow, mint green and blue. I intended to make three round stripes, but, as you can see, I crocheted four rounds the first time I used the variegated.
Somehow I did manage to count to three from then on; the two-round yellow edging is not a mistake! Having reached my target size of 36″ in the valley, I simply stopped. The last yellow round is of hdcs, a good idea when using such soft yarns as it makes the edge a little sturdier than a dc round would.
