It is going to be a bit a race to the finish to blog all the things I need to blog before the end of 2011. This blanket is the biggest project I have done to date.
At this point I don’t have any recipients lined up for the blanket yet, but I know that a well made cotton/acrylic baby blanket is a good gift on had as I (and my friends) get closer to 30 than 25.
Yet again, I am pleased with the fantastic instruction that is an Attic24 pattern, when I grow up I want to be as cool as Lucy.

Project Name: Baby Ripples Blanket
Recipient: Unknown as of this time.
Yarn: KnitPicks Comfy Sport in Fedora, Ivory, Cashew, Sea Foam, Marlin, Creme Brulee, Silver Sage, Peony and Honey Dew.
- Chained 171 to make an 40in edge
- Patterned the ripples to use up the maximum amount of yarn
- Crocheted Ripple Pattern
- Yarn: Such a good workhorse yarn, and after washing (Warm/Cold) and drying (medium) it blooms and is just so soft. Also because of the acrylic it doesn’t seem to to shrink up and it kept its drape.
- Pattern: As always Lucy’s pattern is clear, concise and with lots of photos.
Re-Crochet?: Probably not, however I might do more of Lucy’s patterns. I don’t have much use for crocheted blankets as I have some beautiful quilts.
