Work-in-Progress Wednesday 39


After seeing the v-stitch (pattern here) all over Instagram, I could not be stopped on starting one myself (and once you start, it's hard to stop).  It is the perfect blanket to use up scraps (one row uses a very small scrap ball) and it's fun to kind of make up colors as you go along.  Right now I feel like I have a primary color section and then secondary colors in a big block, so I'll need to mix it up a bit as I go on.  But there is still plenty of blanket to do, so plenty of time.

I'm still plugging along on my ripple as well.  It's Attic 24's ripple pattern but I only work in the back stitches to create the texture.  I love it and it's nice to work without color changes as well.  Nice and mindless while I watch tv.

And this project is right where it was last time I showed it.  I haven't had a lot of create time this summer, but I'm getting there.

I'm going to have to google that V stitch. I like the look of it!

The V stitches look pretty and the colors together are festive!

I'm relatively new to crochet, and I really like both the v-stitch blanket and the ripple in the back of the stitch in one color. Your one color granny squares are also wonderful. I think you and I have similar senses of color and style.

I absolutely adore how you changed that ripple pattern. It looks like the waves breaking on the sand. Gorgeous. I like the v-stitch too. I have a ton of baby yarn leftovers and a baby blanket to crochet. I may have found my pattern.

Love these kinds of projects, I just cannot part with my scraps, this is the perfect way to put them to use.

I meant to ask you where you got the pattern for the granny squares as well, as I find them lovely. Thank you!

Hi Ranee- The pattern is from a book, 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans by Jan Eaton.
