Variegated Crochet Ripple Blanket

I have been so excited about my current crochet project which I have been steadily working away on, so thought I would give you an update.

If you have visited my blog before you may remember me sharing about my latest purchase of some lovely soft yarns and my plan was to turn them into a new Ripple Blanket.

While our home has been undergoing major repairs and renovations and I've not been able to access my craft supplies, nor a flat space to work on, my crochet has been a wonderful creative alternative.  It would drive me absolutely crazy not to have something to be able to work on.

My ripple blanket is growing into a lovely lap sized rug

Working on a crochet blanket has been the perfect winter project and now that it is growing it has the added bonus of keeping me nice and cozy in the evenings as I continue working away on it.

Here is a close up of the pattern and colours

I've been so pleased with the combination of the pink with the variegated colours, they look so good together.  The variegated yarn is made up of pink, grey and a creamy white.

If you are in Australia and have a Lincraft store near you, they have their yarns on sale this week for 30% off.  I highly recommend this Veronica yarn I am using, while it may be thick, it is the softest and warmest yarn I've used in a long time - really nice to work with.  You can't go wrong with it!


  1. Hey Karen,
    Not sure if we have that store here or not. I'll need to do some googling.

    Love your afaghan (spelling??)! My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was in elementary school and I love to do it although it messes with my carpal tunnel.

    The colors in that afaghan are stunning!! Beautiful!!!

    1. Hi Ellen, I'm so glad you liked it. I am very partial to pink and love things to be co-ordinated, so I fell in love with this yarn combination!

  2. Oh my goodness....your color choice matchies your blog!! How cute!!!
