Finished blanket 22 was made for Kimberly and Stewart who had a beautiful wedding back in May. The pattern is one of my favourites, Neat Ripple by Lucy from Attic24. Each ripple is almost a full skein of yarn; all besides the pale grey and purple are Panda Magnum Soft 8ply. I started the blanket in January and it ended up roughly 150cm x 150cm.
Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for inviting us to share your special day!
This blanket was finished a while ago. Last May actually. It’s the same yarn as my rainbow granny stripe blanket. Looking at it now, I think it could probably use a border (I know my friend Maria will agree!).
Finished size – 105cm x 90cm
Hook size – 4mm
27 stripes, each three rows wide
Yarn – Nine colours, Stylecraft Special Double Knit and Panda Magnum Soft 8ply
Pattern – Neat ripple by Lucy from Attic24
Me and my nan, May 2013
Back in November I made a pledge to finish all of the UFOs (unfinished objects) in my stash before starting any new crochet projects. This is the second half-finished venture I can cross off my list, finally.
Why did this blanket take so long to finish? I started it Feb 14, 2010. Finished it Jan 10, 2014. Granted, it did sit in a box, half-finished, for quite a few of the months (years?) between the start and finish dates. And, I did make, um, about a dozen other blankets in that time.
The yarn was lovely to work with, although it is the finest I’ve used. It’s a 4ply merino with a recommendation of a 3.25mm hook. I have almost a skein of each eight colours left, any suggestions on what to use it for?
Finished size – 92cm x 82cm
Hook size – 3mm
Yarn – Shepherd Baby Merino 4ply in eight colours purchased from Lincraft
Pattern – Based on Attic24’s Neat Ripple Pattern.
56 rows, planned out eight rows at a time to ensure each colour was used equally.
Two borders, the first to straighten the curved edges.
UFOs to be finished:
* baby granny-square blanket
* baby wool ripple blanket
* hodge podge #2
* African flowers cushion
* large granny square
* neon chevron cushion
This rainbow ripple has been put aside for a few weeks while I work on more urgent projects.

I started this blanket in December 2010 and finished it at the end of July this year. Hubby and I worked out it took about 106 hours to crochet. The yarn is Panda Magnum Soft 8ply in nine different colours and the design is the neat ripple pattern by Lucy of Attic24. It is the largest project I’ve completed to date. Its home is now with Jess and Eugene, our dear newly-wed friends. Congratulations to you both!
