I’m so glad that it took me a few days to finish writing a post about this one, – thanks to my laptop’s sometimes disabled keys – cuz I really wasn’t crazy for it right when I finished the crocheting. And not just because I forgot to repeat the double-rows of cream on the other end either! – Talk about absent-minded. . . Can you believe I did that?!?!? –
A Scrappy* Ripple for a Scrappy** Boy
I think I was bothered by some of the grassy green yarns I used, which are much more lurid in real life than they seem here.
Whatever, I think it looks fine now and plan to quickly pass it off to DCF before I have the chance to change my mind. lol.
Reader Ann B. likes it better laying vertically.
She makes a good point! The asymmetry (missing stripes) isn’t nearly as bothersome when seen this way, like a blanket on a bed. Ann also mentioned that the stripes will come in “handy to differentiate the ends…Head/Foot. You know how stinky boys feet can be. ” YES, I do!! lol.
This blanket was a great opportunity to use up many green, red and blue scraps, as well as a few partial skeins of off-white.
* Scrappy – Consisting of scraps.
