Ripple blankets are wonderfully addictive to make! I can see that I’m going to end up with a ridiculous amount of these. I’m onto my second already.
The pattern is from Meet Me At Mike’s and the tutorial is perfect us crochet rookies. Admittedly, I had to restart each blanket about three times each. Obviously I’d miscounted somewhere but it didn’t show until I finished the second row. So just know, unravelling and starting again a few times is okay. Or at least, that’s what I’ve come to expect. It’s worth it for a good foundation though, so try not to shortcut that part.
Once you get past those two first rows, you’ll be away laughing. It’s all sweet repetition for your fingers while you watch TV, procrastinate the jobs you’re avoiding or while you chillax after a stressful day.
