Pretty Pastel PINKS!
My pretty pastel apron is my inspiration piece for my next crochet project...a wave chevron ripple throw!
I have yummy Easter yarn colors in pinks, lavender, greens and blues just like my apron.
This is my first try at doing a ripple throw. It won't be perfect but I'm sure I will love it anyway.
First, I looked at Jan Easton's patterns from her book "The Encyclopedia of CROCHET Techniques". I made a practice piece of her wave chevron pattern and then I made one from our fantastic Lucy's - of Attic24 fame - Neat Ripple Pattern (find it here) - Lucy says Jan's pattern inspired her pattern. In the end I decided to go with Lucy's because it was easy to do and it looked slightly nicer I thought.
Unfortunately my "hills" and "valleys" are not lining up as neatly as Lucy's but that's ok I consider this throw my practice throw. I'm using my Loops & Threads Silky Soft acrylic yarn with my favorite H hook.
|Doesn't this make you think of SPRING!|
I don't think I will decorate for St. Patrick's Day this year. I did last year because I hosted our neighborhood BUNCO group for the month of March. But I am looking forward to decorating for Easter because I love all the lovely Easter colors and, of course, bunnies!
THINK PINK and THINK SPRING!
