Blanket Round Up Two

Last Summer back in June just before things got seriously manic for me I was donated  lots of coned yarn remember here and was looking for inspiration as to what to make with them, then I saw this Afghan designed by the lovely and very talented Olga from Lacy Crochet and knew I just had to make it.



I used three strands of coned yarn in each of the two shades and it used a very satisfying 850 grams.
It was a joy to make as rippled blankets always are and was completed in no time. 

The finished dimensions were 48 x 38 inches. 
It was donated to  Needles,Hooks,Angels and Preemies


You can find the pattern here

What are you all up to I hope that you are having a lovely week! we have beautiful sunshine I was beginning to forget what it looks like 😊

  12. It's very pretty. I've never done any kind of ripple. Currently trying to finish up all the granny square blankets I started last year.
