Granny Square Ripple Afghan


I've been doing quite a bit of crocheting lately.  This is the start of my latest project.  I first saw the photo of this blanket on Pinterest and then pinned it to my Pinterest page.  I kept looking on line and finally found that the source of the blanket is on a blog called buscandocomienzos.  The blog is in Spanish, and  I know just enough Spanish to ask how long you've been here and how to find the bathroom. (OK maybe a bit more than that.)  Using translator (which is always an adventure) and the photos, after some trial and error I was able to figure out the decrease stitch where the grannie squares join.




I really love this blanket, and it is going together pretty quickly.


I love working with all of the colorful yarn.

I hope you are stitching today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!Posted by Picasa

Very nice - I like it! All because of you, I recently purchased a big ole bag of yarn to start making some granny squares..

Beautiful, LuAnn.
At least if we were lost in a Spanish speaking country together we would find a bathroom--that is about all I can remember, too. : )

I love your crochet projects! Very creative to sleuth out the pattern. I bet it's good for the wrist etc. to have the corchet motion in between sewing.

Love your new project LuAnn, but how can I go back to crochet and make hexies too?

What a great afghan, my two favorite patterns in one. If you do a tutorial, I might give it a try, too.

Oh, LuAnn it's going to be fantastic.
And on point like that too!!

Love the colours LuAnn I do admire anyone who can crochet like you. I can only manage very simple things.

Sherry said...

I love your afghan. I see, from a previous comment, that the original tutorial has been translated into English so I'm going to check that site.

This looks like something that would be really cool to do for a different looking baby afghan (I have a step-GD coming soon).
