Neopolitan Baby Pram Ripple Blanket


   I have set about a new project this week as I have a few friends expecting babies very soon.  The nearest due is a colleague from work and she is expecting a baby girl.  So I had a little look around to see what I could make and as I follow Little Dove Crochet and have seen the lovely blankets she makes, I was inspired to have a go.  Faye uses the neat ripple pattern from Attic 24 for her blankets and as I am a big admirer of Lucy from Attic 24's work and always follow her on her blog this was a perfect project for me.

   Yesterday my order of wool arrived from Wool Warehouse and I was so excited that I put aside the afternoon for a crochet marathon.

   I had selected Stylecraft Special DK for my choice of wool and ordered four colours.

   1. Parchment
   2. Apricot
   3. Mocha
   4. Pale Rose

Then I set about a lovely cosy afternoon on the settee with my wool and crochet hook and soon the ripples were emerging.

   I love the colours and they remind me of Neapolitan ice cream so hence the title for this post!  I couldn't believe how quickly it grew.  I must say a HUGE thank you to Lucy for her very clear tutorial on her blog.  Give it a go!

    I will post again with my progress.  Bye for now.

  1. Looking good Von. Neopolitan ice-cream, we always had some of that when you were young. Love the colours, I think your friend will be very pleased with her blanket. xx
