This blanket was a joy to make! I started out thinking that I wouldn’t enjoy crocheting ripples. It seemed like a lot more work than a standard granny stripe blanket, and I thought I’d get bored quite quickly. I set myself a target of three stripes a day, and stuck to this plan for a couple of weeks. Then life got a bit busier, and I ended up finishing the whole thing in a burst of activity just after Christmas. It’s huge! It easily covers a single bed, perfect size for sofa snuggling.
