Last January my niece was born. And don’t you think every baby ought to have a soft, warm crochet blanket?
I think I started working on this blanket shortly after my sister told me she was expecting a baby. I crocheted a few rows at a time, thus keeping myself busy until shortly before my little niece was born. Very, very therapeutic business for aunties who can hardly wait to meet their little nieces and nephews……
I made the pattern up as I went along. It wasn’t my first ripple blanket, and I learned the trick by watching tutorials on Youtube, like this one. Once you’ve learned the basics, you can make up your on variations quite easily.
The yarn I used is Scheepjeswol Stone washed: a mixture of cotton and acrylics: very, very soft!
