Shade Card Ripple - Ta Dah!

 



This is the blanket I made - it is based on the ripple pattern made famous by Lucy from Attic 24. It fits a double bed perfectly. I used a 3.5mm crochet hook and one of each of the colours from Jamieson's double knitting (25g) shade card. I used around 409 ch to start with and around 220 rows.




This is the blanket Mum made. She used the second half of each ball once I had completed the rows on my blanket. Again a 3.5mm hook was used, but this time she used a chevron crochet pattern from The Gebtle Art of Knitting by Jane Brocket. She started with 360 ch and the same number of rows. It fits a sofa or a single bed beautifully.

What do you think? We loved sharing this project - it gave us a lot of pleasure and many happy hooky hours!
 
There's about 1200g of leftovers - all wound into magic balls and waiting for the next project...
