My Ripple is finished :-)



The Ripple is finished! It’s been great fun! I didn’t have enough stash, so I bought yarn for this project. I decided to use the yarn Falk from Dale of Norway. This was based on wanting to crochet in wool, not use a hook smaller that 6.00 mm, and Falk had the colours I wanted. I made 196 chain stitches. I used crochet hook 6.00 mm, my crocheting is loose, which in turn gave a blanket that is approximately 1,20 meters wide. I used 27 skeins, and that gave a blanket that is approximately 1,60 meters long. This project was both faster and easier than I anticipated, so now I’m thinking of making one in cotton as well. Once in a while I ask my partner if he wants me to make something for him. His answer is always no. During this project, his interest in this afghan has grown, and he had a very clear opinion about how long it should be. Now, he has adopted it :-)
