I decided to take a break from scrappy projects to make a baby blanket for the new baby in the family. I found a great blanket pattern on the Internet a few years ago but never knew who to make the blanket for (A new baby is always a good reason to crochet a blanket).
The pattern is called the Vintage Fan Ripple Pattern and the instructions with a tutorial are found on a blog called The Creative Being. There is also another great free pattern for the Groovy-Ghan blanket which I hope to make before the end of the year.
I downloaded the pattern and tutorial, grabbed my 4.0 mm crochet hook, and 7 skeins of Stylecraft Special dk yarn in the following colors:
Here are my first 8 rows:
I am hoping to finish the blanket before March 30th, so it can go to the new baby. (I will let you know if I make the deadline and will post pictures of the finished product)
Grab your yarn and crochet hook and join me in stitching a Vintage Fan Ripple blanket!
Have a great week,
