All of the yarn for this week’s ripple was provided by Ann of OK. – Thanks again, Ann!! – I started with the huge skeins of ‘Mint’ green and ‘Baby’ variegated,
to which I added multiple smaller skeins of sport white, – just ignore the peach and lavender –
and a few partial skeins of yellow, pink and blue.
I chose the Eyelet Ripple pattern by Marie Segares,
same as I used for the baby blankets I crocheted during the summer of 2013.
With only eight dc per point, I think it’s scale is more appropriate for a baby blanket than the Rustic Ripple, which I usually change to have twenty dc.
This is the first in what I expect will be a long series of baby blankets. – Ann gave me alot of beautiful baby-appropriate yarn! –
Eighteen pattern repeats across (Beginning Chain of 171) and 77 rows long, it’s aprox. 36″ square and weighs 12 1/2 ounces. I used a size G hook.
Notes to self: For comparison, 2013’s ‘Fireworks,’ also 36″ square, weighed just ten ounces. That makes sense as it was mostly fingering weight yarns. Also done with size G hook – 18 pattern repeats, 74 rows.
