Yummy Cotton Candy!


Pastel Colors...


More pastel colors...


Paths of color...


Glorious shades of color...


Yellow brick road...


Endless colors...


Ribbons of color...



My pretty border using double crochet and Edie Eckman's "Around The Corner Crochet Borders" patterns #109 and for the last round using #120's round 3 with a front post double crochet.  



The border corner.


Gentle folds of color...

Cotton Candy All Laid Out

I love the feel and look of my ripple throw.   

I blogged about Cotton Candy here and here previously.  

It took a little practice to get Lucy's neat ripple pattern down so the "hills" and "valleys" lined up correctly.  But once you master the stitch it is so easy.  And you know when you miss a stitch and it happens but all you have to do is frog back to the error and fix it.   


Cotton Candy Throw

I may just leave it hanging here it looks so pretty!

Perhaps I may give this one away as a gift or maybe not.  

My Crocheted Throws


And here is Cotton Candy added to my pile of crocheted throws.  

I keep thinking about red and white ripple stripes and how Christmasy that would be....

  1. Lovely indeed, great border.
    I "got" the ripple once I worked out what the "row below" should look like as I went along, found I easily kept a check rather than needing to count.

    1. Thank you Anonymous! I don't have a tutorial but you can click on the link in this post to go to the ripple pattern. It's from Lucy at Attic24. She has a blog and shares most of her crochet patterns. This is her ripple pattern. Ripples aren't hard to do once you get the swing of it and they have a lovely feel to them.
