I'm excited to present my version of the Ripple Granny throw.
Two weeks, less than10 100 gram balls of Marvel acrylic. It is approximately 3 feet by 3 feet. Enough for Grandma to cover her lower body down to her feet and tuck around herself when she sits in her chair. About the size of a cot blanket.
Here is a peek at the colours. A dusky mauve, mossy green, dusky pink, chocolate brown and cream. Not the bright colours I generally use but definitely Grandma colours.
58 rows of Granny clusters. 108 stitches on a 5mm hook.
I adapted the pattern I found by doing a colour set and then counting in on the clusters to start in the same place so the first row of the mauve in each colour set is 5 cluster sets. That is how I managed to get the zig zag sides
The edge is just 3 rows of single crochet because I thought the zig zagginess was pattern enough. I think I mentioned it was acrylic rather than wool in case it gets put in the residential care driers. Now I just need to label it with Grandma's name, wrap it in a ribbon and I'm ready to go.
I will write up the pattern if anyone is interested. It's a mixture I adapted from a number of different Granny ripple patterns that I googled to work out how to do it.
Now I have to get my a into g and start cooking for the party this weekend!!! Have a wonderful day!
