** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

Another round ripple


Finished crocheting this round ripple a couple of days ago. I crocheted it with scrap RHSS and Caron One Pounder in cream - I used my "I" hook. I don't know what I'm going to do with it - I think just save it until someone has a baby - probably one of Erica's friends. :)
