My Very First Ripple

I am dying to make a ripple blanket for my daughter, so I bought the Jan Eaton book, and decided to make a little sample blanket out of soft waves, just for practice. (It is now a babydoll blanket). I used Cascade 220. It was leftover from a granny square afghan that I made for my oldest daughter.

I am really glad I did the sample. I learned that I will need to cast on with a larger hook next time, and I also learned that my gauge gets looser with each row. Maybe I was crocheting tightly in the beginning because I was learning how to ripple. (I'm also a fairly new crocheter).

Anyhow, here are pics of my very first ripple project. I am a huge fan of the ripple!

I would love to hear how everyone sews in their ends when they ripple, and I would also love to know if y'all have any tips on changing colors.

I'm so proud to be a part of the "No-End-In-Sight Ripple-Along"!
