Mrs Twins sent me instructions for her ripple which was written by her friend Brenda. If you view Mrs Twins blog you might just happen to notice that she has a few ripple blankets (read that as a lot). I wanted to try someone else's instructions after not feeling so pleased with my Green Baby Ripple. So I grabbed some yarn (very old acrylic - yuk) from a bag that my MIL gave me to give it a go.
See Mrs Twins & Brenda it worked - I did it - just my starting chains are too, too, too tight (any advice with this would be very much appreciated).
It is very easy once I got started ......
and then I went to the shops to pick up some food for home and have a quick peek in a few shops for some specific Xmas presents that my DD3 & us were looking for and
its not wool ..... it is a combination 55% acrylic & 45% cotton. Not overly soft like the Luxury yarn, but way soft enough for me. And the colours are what I was looking for. They did have a dark, warmish blue - should I have added that too????? Looks like I needed something nicer than the old acrylic to practise a ripple with.
Can I also please get some advice from the ripplers as to how many stitches I should start with for a smallish blanket?
And then I found this .........
I'm sure Mrs Twins would like to attempt this ........ although the ones she has already stitched are so very, very nice
