Blanket Progress

Project – Wavy Ripple Blanket in Bernat Baby Coordinates

So are you making something for the Knit and Crochet-Along for Project Linus?  I'm really enjoying the crochet wavy ripple blanket.  The pattern repeat is easy to memorize and I'm loving the bright saturated colours of the yarn.

My only complaint: not sure how much I love the yarn itself.  It looks pretty (have I mentioned how much I love the colors?).  The blanket itself feels soft, but my hook keeps getting caught on the "bumpy" yarn.  Maybe I should have subbed with a smoother yarn?  Maybe I've been working with bulky yarn and big needles for too long?

Just the same, I'm still finding the project relaxing.  And my blanket grows quickly.  Here's hoping it'll be done by the end of the month.

By the way, in case you were wondering about that vest: yes, I did finish the belt and I wove in all the ends (now that was a task and a half).  Whatcha think?  Just the perfect layering item as the weather warms up.

Happy crafting from DinaPurls :)

What yarn are you using? I just finished my second blanket for the project and will get both sent out this weekend. I started with one 9.8-oz. skein each of an ombre and coordinating solid in Bernat Baby Sport (plus a third color in the granny square version), and I have a couple of ounces of each left over. This CAL got me in the mood for charity crochet, so I'm looking for local outlets, maybe a nursing home for some lap robes. Thanks for getting me started in this direction!

That's awesome Eilleen that you're hooked on charity crochet . :) The yarn I used for my blanket is Bernat Baby Coordinates. But there are lots of other Bernat yarns you could use instead.

Hello! I'm new to crocheting and working on my first blanket but having some problems. it is starting to look lopsided. the pattern is The Bernat Wavy ripple Blanket For some reason the side of the blanket seems to be getting taller and shaped higher than the rest of the blanket. The side seems pointy and taller than the rest of the blanket? Any ideas what might be causing this upswing in the blanket? Any help would be appreciated!! thanks!
