Special Request Ripple Afghan

October 29, 2014By 1 Comment

Hello super sweet people!! A while back I had a special request for a Ripple Afghan! The client was incredibly specific – he wanted Arkansas Razorback red with white. He wanted a ripple. He wanted more red than white. He wanted it at least twin bed sized. He didn’t give a time limit though and he bought the yarn so all was good.

The special request came from my husband for a friend in Arkansas that had just lost everything in a house fire. He is such a sweetie ūüôā ¬†I had no idea he even knew what a ripple was so I was quite surprised.¬†I didn’t tell him I hadn’t actually crocheted a ripple before so I went in search of a super easy pattern.¬†

Sooooo many Ripples out there but I ended up choosing this Sweet Dreams Ripple Blanket by Darlene Nemeth. The baby is so adorable I just had to use this pattern!

I used Loops & Threads¬†Impeccable¬†yarn in Burgundy and White. The pattern is super easy and super fast. Once I had a few rows¬†done¬†I was able to ‘watch’ tv and crochet at the same time. The only change I made was to crochet in sets of 8 vs. 4. And I imagine my end result may have been a bit bigger. I did 12 rows red for one row of white. My finished afghan¬†fit the top of our queen bed, so the client (hubby) was quite happy!

To Make this Project Yourself:

I did loose track but I think it was 2 Skeins of white and 6-8 of claret – but no guarantees ūüôā¬†
