~ 2nd baby blankie ~



I finished my 2nd baby blankie - this one is for a boy.  I crocheted it with RHSS blue and a mystery light green w/medium blue, medium green and yellow spots.  The mystery yarn was bought at the thrift store in a bag with a couple other different skeins so I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's an old Sayelle yarn.  Feels like it.  This little baby blankie measures 27" across.  :)

This 18 point round ripple is based on Angelfire's round ripple - I added an extra increase round at the beginning and then changed a couple things.  I didn't write out a proper pattern for it - just notes.

  2. Thanks Sarah - the link for the round ripple pattern is listed in the Feb. 26th ~first baby blankie~ post. I think I might also put the link in my side bar since I use it so much. It's a great pattern. :)

  15. I think I may have left a comment/question on the round ripple pattern before but now I can't find it. Forgive me if this is a repeat. I had the same problem as Nicole. My blanket bunched up in the middle and the edges curled up. I double-checked the pattern vs. my piece so many times that my brain hurts. I finally decided that it makes sense that there are too few dc's on the outer rows for what is in the middle, but can't figure out why you and others have the same pattern and it seems to lie flat with the pattern as it is written to repeat 2 rounds of large v's followed by 2 rounds of small v's. After reading Nicole's comments, I think we are having the same troubles. A pic of my blankie is here: http://yarnoveronce.blogspot.com/2011/03/gifts-for-baby.html Sorry that I don't have one of it lying completely out but you can still tell it curls up on the points.
    ANY suggestions would be most helpful as I really want to make another one!
    Best wishes and a big thank you,

  16. Thanks ladies. :)

    Ladyfromthewoods - only on this 18 point round ripple did I use one v-st rnd and then one shell st rnd. On the regular 12 point round ripples, the pattern is 1 v-st rnd and then 2 shell st rnds. When I am ready to do my sc rnd at the end, I do not skip the dc's in between the points - I sc in them - and I add 3 sc in the points.

    I hope this helps - let me know if you have any more questions. :)

  17. A marvellous blanket and colours too...

  18. Yes, Debi, that helped tremendously!!! When doing the 12-pt round ripple, the original pattern has notes to alternate "2" v-st rnds with 2 shell st rnds to the best of my reading it. Seeing your photos up close then having you confirm that it works best with 1 v-st rnd followed by 2 shell st rnds is already making a difference in my blankie this morning. I just can't thank you enough and if I were there, you'd get a big hug of gratitude! :o) I just love how sweet and helpful other crocheters are and you are certainly both.
    Many blessings to you on this beautiful day!
