Ripple #31 of 2015 – The One With LOTS of Variegated

It was great fun to have so much of a variegated yarn to play with, but I think I may have gone slightly overboard. I wonder how this would have looked if I had exchanged white for some of the variegated rows.

* To be fair, this fictitious crocheting Grandma – not me – did use both pink and blue yarns, but you’ll notice there’s alot more pink! lol

    Perfect as created. It’s balanced. I like balance. The child who receives this will appreciate it, too.

    Very pretty, immediately it reminded me of the 80’s mauve and country blue color palette. Very feminine.

    I think it looks great with the variegated. I love opening my email and seeing your new designs.

    It might be more sedate with less variegated, but it’s livelier with more, so I think a kid would really like this.

    • I think you’re right – just cuz this isn’t my favorite ripple doesn’t mean there isn’t a foster child who will absolutely love it!

      I have more of the variegated. I might try crocheting the sedate version just so I can compare the two. Some one is sure to like it too.
