I use Lyn's RR pattern when I make the afghan so this is a variation of her pattern - with a split! I made a second one (for my Mom) and wrote the pattern down as I went along this time. All you seaso

Its beautiful!!! Well done I think I would keep it too! ;-)

made this one for a coworker whose wife is expecting a boy this month.

I posted this in Show and Tell, hope it's ok it I post here, too. I just learned how to post pictures today, so I'm like a kid with a new toy!

 

This is the pastel rainbow RR I just finished for my new Granddaughter due in April. Gave it to my daughter at her shower yesterday. It's done with Bernat Baby Coordinates and a Susan Bates K hook. It's approx 49 inches across.

I just love your RR it's so soft looking and the new baby will love it. May I ask how you did your edgeing? Can you or someone looking at this post please give me a pattern. I would be so grateful. I think it just gives such a nice finished look. Thank You.

Is it a blended one as well? It is very pretty, I need to learn how to do that.

 

Thank you. Yes, it is blended. I used four rounds of 2 strands of yellow, then 2 rounds 1 strand yellow and 1 of peach, then 3 rounds peach,then so on. I hope you decide to make one. You'll be happy with the results.:hook

Judy, thank you for the compliment.

 

I saw a blended pastel RR that Chrome Kitty posted a picture of a year or so ago and copied the edging. I'll try to explain how I did it.

 

I did 7 double crochet in the chain 2 at the tip of the point, skip one stitch, slip stitch in the next one, skip one stitch, 5 double crochet in the next, skip one stitch, slip stitch in the next one, skip the next one, 5 double crochet in the next one and so on. When I reached the valley of the points, I slip stitched in the two stitches at the bottom of the valley the started over with the 5 double crochets. I hope this makes sense. The number of scallops on the side depends on the number of stitches you have, you might end up with more or less, depending on how big the point is. I had to play around with mine for a while before I figured it out.

 

Well, I hope this helps. :hug

What brand of yarn and hook size did you use? I just love the blended look!

Chris

 

I used Bernat Baby Coordinates and a size K (Susan Bates) hook. The blanket is approximately 49 inches in diameter. 30 rounds plus the edging, if I'm counting correctly. I used one skein of each yarn, but ran out of the blue with half a round to go, so had to buy more and barely squeaked by with the green. I've seen some that have a white center, then the yellow, peach, pink, etc. I kinda wish I had made it just a tad bigger, but I think it will be fine for my new Grandbaby. I'm already planning on making another one for my niece's baby who will be here in July. I hope you decide to make one, you will really enjoy working on it. :crocheting

I have decided to add seven more rows to my afghan. Using the three colors, two rows of each color and an extra row of the variegated. Now what I really want is pictures fast. My daughter is going to take some pictures of it with her digital when she comes in town, my cord is broken on mine. She is in art school taking photography and she took some pictures of the afghan all scrunched around and some of my yarn I am making a shawl with. Speaking of shawls, I really want a pattern for a half moon round ripple shawl to make for my sister. Any one want to make up a pattern? :-)

I did these 3 RR's to give to Children's Mercy Hospital. They're all made with Pound of Love. The yellow one was the first one I ever did, the next one is yellow,green and white, the third one is blue and white following a colorway that someone else posted on this site. It's a great pattern!

I finally finished the RR wedding gift for my friend. This one was going to be a double wedding ring, but I forgot how annoying the inserts were to do. So I did this pattern instead! It's about 84" point to point and the pictures were taken with it on my queen size bed. I think it's big enough for the newlyweds to cuddle under :wink

Very nice colors for the newlyweds. They wouldn't be colors I would think put together, but they are very striking together like that. Everyones is very nice. I need to finish mine by next Sunday for a late easter get together. And get pictures! Then I need to start a new one for my grandson, a spideyghan. The one I am doing was a Christmas present for my granddaughter. Oops! Now it's an easter present!

I couldn't tell you how long it took me to figure out the second color for the border. At one point I cut a bunch of yarn from the skein and was pulling it through (very time consuming). It finally occurred to me that on the chains after the first set of 5, the first chain is stitched over the already there chain 5. So each chain 5 set has a single strand of cream and light green on the back side. I decided the next time I do this border, I'm going to do all colors at the same time and move the skeins around each other.
