Where Happily Ever After is Just a Yarn Away...
Wow that blanket is gorgeous!!! Beautiful work...and completed just in time for another blast of winter. :)
Thanks Lisa, and you're so right, it's done just in time for the big snow storm! lol
That is so gorgeous! This is one of the reasons I want to learn to crochet properly...I kind of get it but there are way more things to remember in crochet than knitting. I only need to know knit and purl in knitting...so many more things in crochet!
Thank you Renne Anne! I really think you would do great at crochet, it's not nearly as hard as it looks at first. Good luck!!
Super awesome! A labor of love this is. How did you hook the border? It looks different from typical DC.
Thanks Stef, I did the border just like Lucy's - 9 rows of granny clusters and then her "Spot-On" border that she did on her second ripple blanket. It's done by sc, ch1, skip 1, repeat and then with the second colour you do the same but work the sc into the ch 1 space from the previous row. Sorry if that sounds all jumbly, but she does show how with pictures and better words on her blog.Here's the link for her Patchwork Granny that explains the border a bit more: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2013/02/granny-patchwork-blanket-ta-dah.htmlAnd here's the link to her Ripple that has the pattern for the "Spot-On" border: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/2012/12/interlocking-ripple-ta-dah.html
love it! What a super cheery blanket!
Thanks Jill :)
Very pretty! I'm sure it will be fun to use!
Thanks Liz, I think it will be :)
This is so beautiful Raili! You are inspiring me to knit a blanket.
