Birdlebee's Granny Ripple
16th August 2010:
I’VE NOW MADE THIS UP AS A BABY BLANKIE, AND HAVE UPDATED THE DOWNLOAD TO INCLUDE THE YARN NEEDED, GAUGE, SIZE, BORDER PATTERN, ETC.
This is a variation of the granny square technique (but not in a square) and a ripple. It’s an easy pattern to memorise, because after the foundation row has been set the pattern repeat is only one row. It’s perfect for baby blankets, sofa snugglers, afghans, throws, and bedspreads. It can also be adapted to make a scarf, hot water bottle cover or indeed a rug.
You can make it any size you like, and using any weight of yarn. It’s also perfect for using up stash, because you can make the stripes as wide or narrow as you like.
If using DK, I recommend a 4mm (G) hook, and if using Worsted, use a 5mm (H) hook.
