A wee ripple...

I have never really crocheted, but really want to learn and hence have started learning all the names of the stitches, to progress on to reading a pattern...


I have started small and hope to get a wee hand towel for my down stairs loo at the end of my efforts. I suppose I will be creating loads of little face cloths etc over the months until I get to grips with my new project.

Eventually I'll progress to a big woollen ripple... I have been admiring all the wonderful ripples on loads of different websites over the last 4-6 months and just couldn't resist trying to work out the pattern myself. It's rippling all right, but the edges more so than I was hoping!
Oh well, there's one way to learn, and that's practice, practice, practice!

In the meantime I'll watch all your wonderful blankets grow into huge beautiful works of art!

Your stitches look beautiful and for a beginner, I'd say you're a natural!

I'd love to know what yarn you're using also?
