I had some really really bad days, and I needed my brightest colors around me, so I made a little rainbow ripple to keep me company.



Here it is on the stool it was made to cover, brightening the room, and playing tricks with everyone's perception.


The pattern I used is the Neat Ripple Pattern from Attic24.
I think next time I would revert the colors of the second rainbow, but for this one, I liked the continuous color progression and I'm quite happy with the whole piece.

That is a cheerful afghan!  Ripple is a stitch that I've been meaning to try, either in crochet or knit.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

This looks great! I love that you had the color progression stay consistent, and it clearly pops out thanks to all the colors.

Its very pretty.  I have always wanted to make a rainbow ripple afghan.  Maybe after I finish the families Christmas gifts I will start one.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Wow, the colors are so lovely and bright!  I think wrapping up in something cozy and bright like this would be a great comfort.  Way to keep your spirits up with crafting, and great work!
