Vintage colors, vintage mood
I am just over the moon with my latest blanket I finished, it’s the Neat Ripple Blanket pattern from Lucy @ Attic 24!
I did rename the name for my project to Neat Vintage Ripple Blanket, just because.. it’s so vintage at it had to be done! As a part of my own personal resolutions for 2018 it was decided that this year, this year would be the year of colors.
Colors at home, on my own personal clothing (I love black and grey for that) and to not be afraid of making stuff for the house in color.
In other words, this year I will live life colorfully….
Neat Vintage Ripple blanket details:
Pattern : Neat Ripple Blanket by Attic 24
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK
Colors: 1 ball each of vintage peach, buttermilk, mushroom, lincoln, sage, duck egg, parchment, gold, stone, cypress, walnut, grape, raspberry, pale rose.
I did not measure this blanket at all. I am very sucky in measuring things. Sorry!
I followed Lucy’s instructions to the point except for the edging, I just took the closest color I had to start the edging and I am still considering adding another row of gold to have more “vintage” feel. Gots to love the feels folks!
As I have worked on this blanket it was decided that this blanket is to stay here with us, and live here forever!
The waves are just so pretty, and the colors have worked well together. I can’t praise this yarn enough.
Special DK is just so soft, squishy and warm. Perfect!
Ripple blanket tips:
Try a swatch! Lucy @ Attic 24 shows you how to in her blog. That’s how I prepared for my first ripple blanket.
Once that was done I was more comfortable doing the whole blanket!
After a while the blanket becomes very repetitive which is great, a nice project to have by the tv for example.
I know if you are a beginner blankets can be quite challenging, but I believe that Attic 24’s instructions and pictures
are clear and concise to help you on your way. If you’re stuck reach out to a crochet forum or one of the Attic 24 FB groups.
I am sure you will get advice there etc if needed!
