this ripple, created by Franie-Jay of Australia, I gathered somewhat similar colors from my attic stash.
Usually, the various weights of partial skeins and scrap balls lead me to an interesting striping pattern. But this time I happened to have grabbed five colors that all weigh between 4 and 5 ounces. – I plan to use the scrap ball of country blue and partial skein of darker Sayelle ‘Brittany Blue’ interchangeably, so weighed them together. – A sixth color, RHSS ‘Tea Leaf’ green (2nd from left) weighs 8 ounces.
Easy enough to just make the first five colors’ stripes all the same width, – let’s say two-rows – but what to do with the extra ‘Tea Leaf’?
Making the ‘Tea Leaf’ stripes twice as wide, four rows, would be the easiest solution, but maybe 2 two-row stripes (4 rows total) would look better. Then again, why not 1 two-row stripe and 2 one-row stripes? (still a total of 4)
Yeah, that’s what I’ll do.
And, with each repeat I can move the ‘Tea Leaf’ forward one step in the sequence.
Since that was almost as complicated to do as it sounds, lol, I stopped at the blanket’s mid-point – the white stripe on the right –
and then mirrored the first half by repeating its striping in opposite order.
P.S. The 1 1/2 skeins of Caron Premium ‘Sky Blue’ (lightest blue) are from Ann of OK and most of the RHSS ‘Tea Leaf’ (darker green) was given by Lisa of TN. Thank you!
