Attempt a Pic







Ah, ha! Sorry for the nearly double post, but I was determined to figure this picture thing out. Thankfully, I noticed the correct buttons. This is the ripple baby afghan I am nearly finished with. I would prefer a brighter colors, but these are available locally (a euphemism for Wal-Mart) in baby sport yarn. When I get yarn for my granddaughter's blanket, it will be worsted and hopefully, brighter pastels.

Carla, What pattern is that? okay, I'm in, Alicia's finished ripple sent me over the edge. I like this pattern and have some wierd stash...

I'm not sure that this worked the first time... but Carla, what pattern is this? I have to jump in with the rest of you.

hey jillian/cheriwan, sorry for the lag with your comments, but i've got comment moderation running so we don't end up awash in spam. i think the pattern carla is using is an open chevron...at least it looks like the open chevron in donna kooler's encyclopedia of crochet. if you want to join the blogging fun, drop me an email at kyogadawn(at)visi(dot)com so i can send you an invite!

Sorry. Bible class last night and when we got home it was my sweet husband's turn to play at the computer.

The pattern is from Leisure Arts Little Books, Ripples For Baby found at Wal-Mart (ahem, my LOCAL yarn shoppe) and other fine emporiums. Really, this is pretty much a standard ripple, but it had been so long since I made one that I was suckered in to buying this book. 7dcs on each beginning and end of row. 6 dcs, skip 2, 6 dcs, 3dcs in same stitch, 6 dcs, skip 2, 6 dcs, 3 dcs in same stitch, etc. Make sense?

It's very easy and makes a nice, light blanket. I also like to use a larger hook than called for mainly because it gives a nice drape if the stitches are a little loose. I think I'm going for the wavy one Jane and Alicia made the next time to relieve my slight boredom, if nothing else!
