Simple Edging

 This week has been rippletastic
working with the most pretty ice cream colours!


My colour palette of
has been most popular
lemon, wisteria, candy floss, spring green, 
apricot, clematis, fondant and sherbet.


Oooooh how I love to ripple it is so therapeutic!
This pattern by Lucy from Attic 24 blog is called
 and I can highly recommend it.


I am always being asked how I edge my ripples and v stitch blankets
using this very simple narrow edge


First I make 1 round of dc (English) 
putting 1 dc in each stitch along the zigzag edges
with a decrease at the valley and an increase at the mountain
then 2 in each stitch along the straight sides.


Then for the 2nd round I make
1 dc, 3 chain, 1 dc in the same stitch
miss a stitch
repeat.
This forms a lovely little wavy edge
 which will follow the zig zag edge happily
 and also sit neatly on the straight sides.

I hope you enjoy using this free pattern and colour recipe.

I have just begun my first ever ripple blanket and I was surprised at how easy the pattern was once I got started. I'm on row four and it looks gorgeous already.
