I have finally started my first RR and I am using Aggie May's pattern that she so graciously shared with me (thank you). This is what i have got done so far and I am hoping that it is turning out right as this is my first one. What do you think??? Does it look like it is supposed to :lol.

That is a sweet little blanket, 'Stina. The bobbles have a nice effect.

 

You think so? I was hoping they'd be noticeable and was thinking with my next one doing the bobble row in a different color from the rows surrounding it to make them stand out a bit more maybe...?

I felt exactly the same way! I'm on my second RR and can see why they are so addictive!

 

I've been using the sew on fire pattern, do you more experienced RR-ers find Aggie's pattern to be less "rollie" at the points - because the larger my RR gets the more the points are starting to turn and roll up?

 

BTW beautiful RR's people!

Aggie's pattern is basically the same as the Sew On Fire pattern. Hers is just worded differently.

 

My points tend to curl slightly if I use a smaller hook, so I usually go up a size hook. Just make sure to do 2 rows of large shell and 1 row of small shell in the points and you should be fine.

 

With all of the RR's I've done, only 1 curled.

I never have a curling problem...use Mel's method, and Sew on Fire pattern. That was the first pattern I ever used and I stick with it.

My next RR will be made using Homespun, during the Greek Games. It'll be lapghan size. I may get more than one done, but I have no idea how things will be at home, etc, so.....

I think bobbles are good either way! :yay I clicked on your bigger picture first and kept looking at it....something is different (I know I'm real sharp sometimes :blush ) but can't quite figure it out, but I LIKE it! Then I looked at the bobble pic! Oh bobbles! :clap

 

ScoobyDoo and Marycathie, your ripples are gorgeous! :cheer

Okay finished it up tonight

Done in pound of love and an I hook

I added a crab stitch on the border and it seems to have helped a little with the curling

 

The one thing I notice about everyone else's are that the centers are less hole-y

I love it! Is it a pound of each color...?

 

The reason my center hole is smaller is because I start with a 'magic circle'. I love those things.

not nearly a pound -

I actually bought seven pounds for a ripple(don't ask me why..I don't know..)

I am on the third blanket so far and I haven't run out of anything yet...

 

and the *magic circle* sounds wonderful! :yay

I use the magic circle too.

Also, when I do mine, I do row 3 differently. I don't skip a space, I do a DC where it calls for the skipped space. I didn't like how open the center was, so I did it that way. Then I found a post that has tips on a RR.

Here is that link.

I think the texture is similar to Homespun, which I've used...so I would use Baby Clouds.

Mel, I'll have to try that less "holey" way of making the RR.... Thanks for the link!

I may have missed something in a past post, but what is a "magic circle"?

I have finished one Spiderman RR - one more to go, and I just started a pink RR for my grandaughter. Add that to the Cathederal Window that I started a couple of weeks ago, and I have been busy crocheting!!
