Baby Ripple

Here's BABY RIPPLE, don't you agree it is lovely ! ! !


DH and I picked the yarn and the color [what else beside pinks would do?] and I set to work crocheting, crocheting and then, crocheting some more.
It ended up be 36" x 40"




Wasn't too certain how to finish the edge until I picked up my old standby [there are some that think it's publishing date of 1959 makes it OLD, OLD]


Found what I was looking for on page 18:


Ahh, a Shell Stitch Edge.
What fun ! ! !
My very first ripple blanket completed.

Certainly is a Lucy-style ripple blanket if I ever saw one.   Please, take a moment to drop in for a visit with Lucy and leave her a comment.



Why it's a box covered with hearts!
Just the right box for:
A Gift-From-Our-Hearts
topped off with a pink bow.
Ready for a girly-girl.

  10. I love the way you've added the border to square it off. I never thought to do that with the one I made and just left the zigzag edges. Great colours as well.

  12. The border on Baby Ripple was inspired by none other than The Garden Bell - you can find her Ripples on her blog. Just click on 'The Garden Bell' in the above Comment.

    Hugs,
    Gerry
