Baby boy ripple

Baby boy ripple

A ripple ready for a baby boy.

Started early in the New Year, this has taken me about 5 weeks. And apart from one additional ball of the denim blue colour, was all made from my crochet cotton stash. A huge win, in my opinion, although my stash is still quite huge πŸ˜‰

I used the Attic 24 pattern. I could have worked one out myself but why bother when it is already written down for you.

I kept the ripple edging and finished the whole blanket off with 2 rows of double crochet.

I used Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 Yarn bought from DeramoresΒ in white, jeans blue, pastel blue and yellow.

It has been through the washing machine at 30 degrees in a delicates bag and blocked.

So I know it’ll be suitable for washing without any of those darn ends of yarn appearing.

But what are these?

Could they be the start of an elephant, a rhino or a bear? Maybe all three?

All out of my new amigurumi book

Happy crocheting!

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  4. Looks great. I won’t be copying any time soon! I’ll be interested in seeing your completed animals. I could maybe manage that. I’m always impressed at the difference proper blocking makes to the final item

  7. The blanket is lovely but you’ve got me thinking about a Cadbury’s Ripple now – do they still do them in the U.K.? – I suddenly want one. I might have to get my mule (aka husband) to bring over a supply. I am dying to see what you make from the amigurumi book – they all look so cute, whatever you make will be gorgeous although I see you’ve gone ‘off piste’ with the colours πŸ˜‰

  9. I always love your crochet. It’s so neat and pretty. My hubby asked if I was crocheting a pear when he saw my making one of those bodies.

  11. This is a such a beautiful blanket, I love the colours. Those bodies do look a bit like pears! The animals will look great whichever ones you are doing – although I particularly like the elephant.

  14. Beautiful blanket, and well done for using your stash! I had a go with the ripple pattern but didn’t get on with it, so am sticking to knitting just now. But crochet does seem so much quicker than knitting………
