Baby boy ripple

Posted by

A ripple ready for a baby boy.

Started early in the New Year, this has taken me about 5 weeks. And apart from one additional ball of the denim blue colour, was all made from my crochet cotton stash. A huge win, in my opinion, although my stash is still quite huge 😉

I used the Attic 24 pattern. I could have worked one out myself but why bother when it is already written down for you.

I kept the ripple edging and finished the whole blanket off with 2 rows of double crochet.

I used Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 Yarn bought from Deramores in white, jeans blue, pastel blue and yellow.

It has been through the washing machine at 30 degrees in a delicates bag and blocked.

So I know it’ll be suitable for washing without any of those darn ends of yarn appearing.

But what are these?

Could they be the start of an elephant, a rhino or a bear? Maybe all three?

All out of my new amigurumi book

Happy crocheting!

  1. Looks great. I won’t be copying any time soon! I’ll be interested in seeing your completed animals. I could maybe manage that. I’m always impressed at the difference proper blocking makes to the final item

  2. The blanket is lovely but you’ve got me thinking about a Cadbury’s Ripple now – do they still do them in the U.K.? – I suddenly want one. I might have to get my mule (aka husband) to bring over a supply. I am dying to see what you make from the amigurumi book – they all look so cute, whatever you make will be gorgeous although I see you’ve gone ‘off piste’ with the colours 😉

  3. This is a such a beautiful blanket, I love the colours. Those bodies do look a bit like pears! The animals will look great whichever ones you are doing – although I particularly like the elephant.

  4. Beautiful blanket, and well done for using your stash! I had a go with the ripple pattern but didn’t get on with it, so am sticking to knitting just now. But crochet does seem so much quicker than knitting………
