I said I’d do it before I moved, and here it is! Warm and cosy on my bed in all it’s purple wavy glory: the Purple Waves ripple blanket!
Not much more to add to my previous post, except that I followed Lucy’s Ripple Blanket Know How tutorial for the edging and the corners and it was spot on, as always. I did a row of trebles along each long edge, ‘filled in’ the ripples top and bottom, and then did two rounds of double crochet all the way around. I didn’t bother to steam-block my corners, mainly because IT’S COLD and I couldn’t wait to get this baby on my bed! But I think they look fine anyway.
I think this is probably my most accomplished crochet project to date, and the first time I’ve made something where I didn’t make any mistakes (that I’m aware of!). I’m SO CHUFFED with this blanket!!! It’s purple and it’s wavy and it’s soft and warm and it kept me happily occupied through all the darkest part of winter, who could ask for more?? Right, who’s for an early night with a hot water bottle…Have a cosy week one and all! 🙂
