it’s a ripple

A crocheted ripple blanket, worked in neat ripple.

Cascade Eco Wool, 10 skeins total in about 8 shades (some colour sections are longer). Yarn held double, with a J / 6mm hook. Yes, it’s pretty firm, but it did loosen up quite a bit in the wash. I probably could’ve gone up at least one hook size, but I like the density. It nearly covers the top of my double bed (though I didn’t get any photos of that, oops). I started out making it for myself, but ended up giving it to my partner for his birthday yesterday. It’s still in the family.

    Love it!!! I have vivid memories of aesthetically dubious ripple afghans from my childhood; I get such a thrill every time I see someone take the concept and create something beautiful.

    Greys, so simple I wouldn’t have thought of it, but the result is gorgeous.

    It may be time to dust off my Cascade Eco Wool log cabin blanket. I estimate I am about half done.

    Congrats. You have created a beautiful piece. I would love to replicate it if you would be so kind as to tell me which colours you used.

    Love this piece!! Can you help me understand better? I believe I understood you used two skeins at once? Did you mix the colors? Could you tell me the colors you used? I would love to make this for a good friend from Chile who is coming for a visit in January and grey is their favorite color. Thank you and again congrats on such a pretty afghan.

    Hi! I’d love to make this blanket for my new home. Did you follow any kind of pattern or was it a freehand thing? Also which colours of the Cascade Eco Wool did you use?
