Making: a wave blanket

I have had quite some random yarn which wasn’t enough or particularly nice on its own, but still didn’t want to dispose of (no waste!)…

There are many ways to use smaller batches and in my opinion one of the most useful is that of using them in a blanket – in general I prefer to make things that have a practical use.

There are many nice patterns, both for crochet and knitting, and quite some are even free.

I had eyed this pattern a long while ago and finally I got around to actually make it… isn’t a nice feeling when you choose an item and start with it?

This time I have been good, and didn’t just start it (Startitis..?)!

The pattern is “Easy Ripple Afghan” by SusanB (free Ravelry pattern and blog post) and it comes in two sizes (throw and baby blanket) – in any case it is very easy to adjust to fit the size you want.

My (little) project notes are on Raverly and here are a few pictures…
