I have long admired the waves of Lucy’s Attic 24 Neat Ripple blanket and how the colours calmly snuggle together to make you feel all cosy. Until recently I have avoided making this beautiful blanket for fear of hooking those little stitches in the wrong places and ending up with more or a wobble than a wave. Well, worry not my Stitch Sharer friends- after the first few rows of keeping the pattern closely at your side, you somehow begin to “feel” the design and find yourself able to increase and decrease in all the right places without a thought. Here’s my blanket back in October with its 38 rows of up and down ness. 71 rows (and a border!) later, my very own version of Lucy’s Attic 24 Neat Ripple Blanket is finished and big enough for a single bed. For the border, I worked a couple of rows of UK treble stitches and finished with a picot edge. I’m really pleased with the blankets ‘snuggle-factor’ and although mine is worked in the same Stylecraft DK yarn as Lucy’s Attic 24 Granny Stripe, due to the closeness of the stitches, the blanket feels even warmer that the Attic 24 Granny Stripe I made.Two soft and squidgy blankets of loveliness to take you through the year. One perfect ‘Neat Ripple’ blanket for those autumn / winter months and another, ‘Granny Stripe’ for wrapping around your shoulders as you catch the last few rays of the evenings spring / summer sun.
