Completing the Ripple

As you all know, about six weeks ago I decided to learn the ripple stitch in crochet. Once I had done about 12 rows, I understood the pattern and was able to continue without looking at the instructions.

I reached the required size for the baby blanket and began to work the edges once I had sewn in all the loose threads. I had to think a bit on how to finish the work as the pattern I had worked from did not suggest an edging. After a few attempts, I managed to create a result that I was happy with using the double crochet stitch.

I decided to follow the “simple is best policy” as I did not want to detract from the beauty of the ripple stitch.

As I laid the blanket out to view and photograph, I was pleased with the result. I hope that when I give the mother-to-be the blanket in March, she will be happy with it and that it will be used for many years to come.

I enjoyed using this stitch and I am sure that I will make another blanket like this. At least next time I will not spend too much time working out the pattern 🙂
