Just as I was deciding what to start work on next after the mammoth custom order was finished – another order arrived with perfect timing.
This blanket was to be for a baby girl, and together we chose these beautiful muted colours from Bendigo Woollen Mills – Baby Pink, Ghost & Cream and decided on the Neat Ripple pattern from Attic24.
Even though it was only 3 colours, it was most enjoyable to crochet up!
I finished it off with a simple border on the ‘wrong’ side of the ripple because I prefered the look of that side – you’ll notice on the photo below there is a distinct difference between the two sides. I’d never really noticed it until I made this blanket – perhaps the lighter colours make it more noticeable?
Working on the ‘wrong’ side did make crocheting the border into the initial foundation row a little more tricky, and it did need a little blocking to make it lie a little flatter on that edge – which I did after taking these photos
I definitely will be using this colour combination again!
