New Ripple Baby Blanket Pattern

I posted the other day that I found a new ripple baby blanket pattern on a friend's blog and was able to find the pattern leaflet on amazon. It came in Tues, just in time for WIP Wednesday!

When it said leaflet, I thought that's exactly what it would be, just a few pages of patterns. I was pleasantly surprised to open my package and see that it was more of a book rather than leaflet.  It's Our Best Baby Afghans (Leisure Arts #2853) and has over 50 patterns inside!

Here's the Downy Soft ZigZag I'm going to do. It's made with long double crochet (Ldc) and extended long double crochet (ex Ldc) stitches, so will be just a little different than the normal ripple pattern.

Now to see what two colors of yarn I have on hand to get started on it.

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post.

** Note ** Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.

I was surprised they called it a "leaflet," too! Did you find any others in there that you like?

I don't have any links to add today since my crocheting projects are all currently "secrets." But I keep your button on my sidebar!

Wow...this is my 4th try to get your page to fully load this am so I could get in on the wip linky. See, I did remember. Not sure what the loading problem was, but I kept trying. Nice baby blanket.

Ripples always look so lovely when done right!
