At last! It's finished.
I am so pleased because not only did I teach myself the stitches and figure out how crochet instructions read ( confirmed knitter for 35 years... patterns read differently!) but I also destashed tons of Patons 100% cotton DK left over from the mitered square afghan I completed! Double result!

Hope this is the correct thread.. aplologies if it's not!

What wonderful colours and pattern, you did a great job.
I am an ammature knitter, and I have dabbled in crochet, I still haven't grasped the patterns.

You did a great job! Teaching yourself to crochet can be tricky. My grandmother had to teach me, and it was even worse because I'm left handed. She sat directly in front of me and I would mirror what she did. Anyway, back to your rainbow ripples - very awesome and looks cozy.Smiley

So pretty! I taught myself to crochet about 21 years ago.
I love your beautiful blanket. It looks like the ripple that called a wave.
I've seen many patterns for it but don't have a link offhand.
