I have finished a couple of very satisfying projects, using up stashed yarn and re-stocking my ‘For sale’ bag.
Two baby blankets made in Sirdar simply recycled dk, on a 4.5mm hook. The colours are dip dye blue, canvas, camomile, grape, fleck, denim wash and pumice.
This is a work in progress, but I have been wanting to try ripples for ages and I like the colours so far:
Made in Rico baby classic dk blue, ice blue, turquoise and light grey on a 4.5mm hook. It is not my favourite yarn – 50% polyamide 50% acrylic but some colours feel like cotton and some are soft and wool-like so you get different textures even using one yarn.
I used Lucy from Attic 24’s tutorial on how to ripple (see below) and started off with the colour combination from Little Tin Bird’s baby ripple blanket no.3, and the rest has been plain sailing….
