Raspberry Ripple

This one has been a long time in the making.  I wanted to make a Ripple Blanket using Attic 24's pattern as I love the pattern!  (http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/ripple-blanket-know-how.html)

For some reason I seem to have a lot of pink yarn 
(funny because I am really more of blues and greens kind of girl!) 
so I decided to use all pinks for my Ripple Blanket ... And so Raspberry Ripple was born ...

Of course it had to be called Raspberry Ripple with the various shades of pink and being a Ripple Blanket!

Some of the pink yarns were varigated - one in particular went through pinks to blue. 
 I kept this in as I felt it gave it a bit of oomph!  

It was one of those projects that kept going ... and going!  
I ended up wanting to make it big enough to fit a single bed.  And here it is being shown on Katie's bed ...

As you can see it is plenty big enough!  And how pretty does it look?!

And here it is on a king size bed - just to give an idea of it's size.

I loved making this one and will definitely make another one in the future - perhaps in lots of scrap yarn...?

  1. I've yet to do a ripple blanket though I've had the Attic 24 kit for 18 months now stashed in my cupboard. The pink is so pretty. Such a lovely blanket for someone to snuggle under. Here the girls could always be found under a quilt growing up chillin out.

  2. Do it Shirley! It's a lovely pattern!

    My Adam likes making forts with the blankets and quilts!

    1. Sounds a good idea Adam, I used to like making houses under our table growing up and that was a very long time ago. Yes Lucy I think I must set myself a starting date - before the end of the year. Got some grandchildren projects to crack on with before that :)
