Finished: 1st Ripple
Here it is in all its rippliness! College Dude's ripple blanket is finished!

Details: Pattern: Soft Waves from 200 Ripple Patterns by Jan Eaton (#19, I think)


Yarn: 17 balls of Cascade 220 superwash in various colors. Each color was used three times in 3 rows of dc


Hook: Size H


Finished size 55" x 75"




With this yarn and hook size I started with 195 chains, but probably could have gone a bit wider. The photo at left shows the blanket spread out on my full bed, so it should hang down a bit on each side of CD's twin at school. The length is perfect for him. I am very, very pleased with the results, and I think he is too. While I have enjoyed working on it immensely, I am taking a week break from The Girlfriend ripple to focus on socks.......and lace.
