Ripple Afghan Finished!



I think summer has been waiting for me to finish my winter work…it’s been unseasonably cool this year (I am not complaining) and I have fortunately enjoyed extra evenings and cool afternoons to finish those last stubborn rows.


Phew....My stripy ripple blanket…finished!

85 x 65 inches



So much work! So many rows! So many hours!

It's a longish one because I wanted it to be tall enough to actually cover my DH's feet!

No technique, I just used up whatever colours I had in whatever turn I felt like. Sometimes, the following morning, the colours I teamed up looked different from the night before...but I think, overall, it works.
And I addded  two borders, a green and a black which keeps the rows behaved.
A finished crochet blanket is such a satisfaction.

What now? Well.... launch of the next BOM of course…

Very nice, I love the graphics a ripple gives. Plus an afghan always gives the user a hug doesn't it?

This is so lovely.

Wow Esther! That is A LOT of crocheting! Only someone who has crocheted a ripple afghan can appreciate just how much work went into that afghan. Nice job! Love the border too. I've never seen a ripple with a border, so that's certainly different.

LOVE the ripple afghan. A great way to use up scraps. The neat thing is that its crochet. I don't know how to knit. I've been looking at that pattern but haven't started one...yet. Hope your DH enjoy cuddling with it.

My husband and I were talking about crocheted afghans yesterday. I used to do the rippled ones just to keep my hands busy, but I don't have even 1 now. I told my MIL to crochet a little and make afghans for the new members of the family. Nice to see yours.
