It's one of those patterns that looks hideously complicated and off-putting to a beginner but once you've got the foundation row sorted it's even simpler than a granny square! I love the way it is more geometric looking than the other type of ripple (with dc rows, or u.s. sc).
I'm wondering how I'm going to edge this blanket, the row ends look so raggedy! I can see that the danger here is making any edging look like a frill (aaarggghh!).
...and my first row (red) is curling under so that's going to need attention too, so much to learn! These colours are absolutely 'me' so I'm indulging myself in a crochet blanket of my own on the basis that this design needs to be 'mastered' before I make one for someone else! However, poachers are lurking...the children are making appreciative comments, and it's been a while since they did that about woolly projects!
