Our Creative Spaces - Red Ripple

I've been wanting to do a ripple for a while. Actually, what I really want to crochet 
is a proper pointy chevron but have been unable to find a pattern. Anyway, I thought 
I'd start with a ripple for the time being.





I've used Lucy's pattern at Attic 24. Her explanations + photos are always so easy 
to follow. I haven't had to pull it apart and start again, not once.





There's something so fresh and happy about ripply stripes. 





I've started on a chartreuse stripe already and plan to do a yellow one next.
Figuring on getting together a mass of rainbow stripey cushions. (Can you tell 
I've been watching The Dukes of Hazzard? The late 1970s version was on TV just before while 
I was crocheting... I always end up speaking like that after watching it! :))





Anyway, for all my plans I haven't finished the red ripple yet. This one's still 
a front panel only but I've draped it over a cushion to see how it will look. 





If you know of a pointy chevron pattern for crochet I'd love to see it.
Hope you've had a lovely week. See more spaces here.

Love it! It's sort of reminding me of a candy cane at the moment (in a good way). I do enjoy a good ripple!

Try this pattern out, it doesn't look like much on the page but I believe it's rather pointy!

Blueberry Park said...

it's absolutely gorgeous, Kylie and I would love to make a stripy mustard throw for our bed, but since i don't even know how to crochet that may be a tad ambitious ;-)

Fay said...

Looks awesome! Love it.

Martta said...

I've been itching to make something, namely a baby blanket, with Lucy's ripple pattern, but can't decide on the colours. But you just showed me that it can look absolutely stunning with less colours too. Very stylish I think and It would look great and very modern using black and white. Maybe I'll try that. Thanks for the inspiration! And happy crafting.

I don't know what 'a pointy chevron pattern' is but I do know I love your
red&white ripple!
Happy weekend Kylie :)

Sally said...

So very very Christmassy... or a tribute to the greatest team of all - Sydney Swans!

Either way - looks brilliant. Love it.
