  2. 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!

    1. 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!!

  3. Super awesome! A labor of love this is. How did you hook the border? It looks different from typical DC.

    1. 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.html

      And 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
