Rapunzel Ripple

 I have started on a Rapunzel ripple blanket for H's best friend. She will be graduating highschool this year and this is what H wants to do for her. Rapunzel is, of course, her favorite princess. 
As you can see, it started off pretty going pretty well. But let me preface this with the fact that I have never done a ripple before. I have never been able to do a ripple before. I don't know why, it just never worked out.

 See! It never works out for me. I messed up somewhere in the second row and had to pull the whole thing out. Eeerrggghhh. Ok. put it down and come back later!!! Yea, great advice!!

 Alrighty! I put that pattern and color down and picked up another of each. Hmmm, I like this a little better. The color is right and I seem to have a flow going with the ripple pattern. This just might work!

YES! Ha, ha!! I think I'm getting the hang of this! Whew.  I refuse to believe this will not work out! I will get this done. 

It will be mostly the lavender with a few golden stripes. I may applique a sun on it at some point.

H's other best friend is also graduating this coming year, so she wants me to do one for him as well. He is a Disney freak also, but his will be a bit different. The challenge will be to keep it manly while adding princess and cutesy characters. His will probably be done with different granny squares. Not sure yet. But I really need to get moving because I also need to do one for my niece getting married in a year. 

I just love having a full crochet plate :)


  1. Hope the Ripple works out. I've tried and failed several times with Ripples, I even made a small sample one once and thought yes I've got it, but it still all went wrong. Look forward to seeing how it goes.

  2. I am just putting the finishing touches on a big blanket for our own bed and am about a third of the way through another that will be used over an armchair. I would just love to be asked to make a blanket. At least one!

  3. Clare: Thank you so much. It's still going good, though I did have to pull a few rows out to get it straight again:)

    Gillian: I sure wish I could crochet for myself. It seems all I ever do is for someone else. I have a couple started for myself but I never have much of a chance to work on them :)
