Two weeks ago my ‘Blue Jeans Ripple’ featured Red Heart’s ‘Fiesta’ yarn, which contained a little dark green, pink and white with the predominate ‘Light Periwinkle‘.
I wanted today’s blanket to highlight another special yarn, RHSS ‘Frosty Green Fleck’, a more traditional-looking tweed. – The above link takes you to an even better close-up. – I knew that if I combined it with a bunch of distracting colors the subtle fluffy little bits of grey, light brown and black could easily be overlooked so I went hunting for yarns that would instead help show them off.
Yay! to using up very old stash! It felt so good to find a home for more of my old DuPont ecru, part of a late 2011 donation.
The only other yarn this ripple needed was a small skein of dark brown.
2 ecru – 3 fleck – 2 ecru – 1 brown and repeat until your blanket is long enough, or you run out of one of the yarns, whichever comes first!
Now, I’d like you to meet. . .
Frosty Green might not be as Bright of a green as we’ve come to expect, but it will do.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
