Lets Do A Round Ripple Together


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the color suggestions for my RR! I wrote my post too fast the other night because I was afraid the internet would shut down in me before I was finished typing :eek So I did leave out some info...I have been making my RR with leftover RHSS yarns I had on hand but did have to buy more black. I like the watermelon suggestion but don't think they have it in RHSS :no I don't want to use other brands mixed in because then the afghan won't lay right.

The only purples I have are either too dark or too light.

 

nss - I really like the way your RR came out, I really like the extra points on it!! :hook

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.

Finally finished my Starghan and did 6 VA Tech squares. Also went over the weekend to move one of my sons home from college for the summer.

 

So now I can give my "football game" RR my full attention. No overlapping projects this time! I started with nine rows of navy, using Caron pounders. It will be navy and orange with a little white, my son's school colors. But the white was not Caron...it was a pounder from my stash, and I don't like the feel of it. So off to AC Moore later today. The pounders are on sale for $3.44 this week.

Crochetingfool :sun helped me get the extra points into this,,since I obviously can't follow directions the added points are shorter,,but it's ok, I guess

The main thing is,,it's finally done:)

 

The rest of this yarn is going in the bottom of:headache the back of-:yell under a pile of:sofunny anything I can find to keep it out of my sight!!!

 

Iyiyi,,,Thanks for lookin;)

 

 

 

I think it turned out great! Maybe you need to do a double treble to start on row 16. Everyone's gauge is different. I think it looks neat with the smaller humps...hehehehe

stormy- you could always us a bright varigated yarn with mixture of those colors or do 1 row of each color and a row of black in between and then start the colors over again in regular order.

I started working on the Spiderman RR tonight. I'm only on round 8 at the moment. While I was at Walmart buying the yarn, I also bought a spiderman pillow. The afghan and pillow are going to be my youngest nephew's Christmas gift. He will be 4 by the time Christmas gets here.

crochetingfool - I really like the second one! What pattern is it ?

 

This is the round ripple pattern from Mary Maxim. I first bought a baby afghan pattern, then two others from Mary Maxim and was I surprised when the only difference in the pattern is the yarn used.

When you use a variegated color of yarn or any of these new yarns that make their own pattern it makes this round ripple look different.

The gray variegated is called 'Marble' from the Mary Maxim catalog.

 

I'll have to admit I changed the one pattern and went from 12 points to 24 points. All I did was increase with treble stitches inbetween the points to make 24 points.

Great round ripples everyone!! :hook

 

I have been working on one for the past couple of weeks. I've just been working on it between other projects. I'm going for bright! Though it does look better in person than it shows in the pic. :) I think I will do about 2 more bright color sections, I have orange but can't find another bright color that I am not already using :think Any ideas?

Hi Stormy

Red Heart doesn't have watermelon, but would light rasberry be close enough:think they have it in the super saver skeins...

These things are addictive. I've started another. This one has a red and cream color scheme. Really just rh skeins lying around the house that needed to be used up. Almost done, a couple more rows and weaving in lots of ends.

 

I must say, the last few rows are torture. They never seem to end!

Hi Carol!

I was at walmart yesterday and picked up a skien of Shocking Pink. It looks a lot like raspberry :) I think it should go well with the other colors and it's different than the other pink I already used.
