Crochet ripple blanket

A while ago I stumbled across this crochet ripple tutorial on the Attic24 blog and thought I would like to give it a try. On one of my visits to Hobbycraft I saw these yarns and thought they would work really well together and would be perfect for the project.

The yarns are all DK weight and are varied blends of wool, nylon, acrylic and cotton. The multi-coloured yarn is Sirdar Crofter DK in ‘Seagrass’, the lime and cream are Sirdar Country Style and the blue/green is Sirdar Click.

The pattern was very easy to follow, you just need to focus on setting up the first row correctly and thereafter remember to count your stitches!

I really like the way the stripes are ‘softened’ by the multi-coloured yarn.

I finished off the edge with a couple of rows of DCs and I might still add a little pico edge. This is the finished piece…just in time for the heatwave lol.

As my number of crochet projects has been increasing, so has my collection of crochet hooks – both in quantity and size. I wanted somewhere to keep all my hooks together and found a small case, but when I bought some thicker hooks they just didn’t fit. I then came across this really fun hook case on Ravelry, which inspired me to make my own, which could easily be adapted to suit. I used a simple double-crochet stitch and some oddments of wool – but its the googly eyes that really bring it to life.
