In the spirit of lifelong learning and continuing with my aim to learn new skills in 2015, I was very happy to finally learn how to crochet a ripple. I followed the excellent Gentle Ripple How To tutorial on Linda's Crafty Corner blog.
I am such a slow learner where crochet is concerned, that it took me a few attempts to master the decrease stitch. But I persevered as I really wanted to make a ripple something.
I must be a tight crocheter. This was starting to look more like a rug than a soft blanket! In the end I decided to turn this into a baby scarf. I think I am a tight crocheter, especially when I am concentrating on something new. I broke the cardinal rule and didn't make a swatch. If I make another blanket I will go up to size 5mm crochet hook and do two rows per colour.
Thanks, Linda for the very clear phototutorial/
