Autumnal Waves

I started this blanket way back in October and have now finished it. It covers a single bed and was made out of odds and ends of autumn coloured wool from the stash. Click on the Autumn Blanket label for more information.

Pusscat, you're getting in the way.

It grew very quickly when I turned my hand to it.


The border is half trebles, doubles and reverse doubles which makes for a strong edge. I did not fill in the ripple dimples but kept them going at either end for a wavy look.


It's now residing in my guest chill out work room on the bed where I sit to crochet and read.

  2. Your beautiful blanket has given me an idea! I love the ripple pattern, I made one in Splash yarn a few years ago.

  3. Love your blanket. Pity I can't crochet as it would be a super way to use up lots of small odd balls of wool. I like that it has thin and thicker waves.

  10. The blanket is lovely, I have not done a ripple blanket yet either, still trying to use up old 4ply yarn - it really does go a long way!
