My Zigzag blanket was the culmination of my brain touring a pattern for a ripple in treble crochet, converting it into double crochet and losing something in the translation. I love the result it's a spunky ripple!*
Ingredients :1 crochet hook, Yarns in as many colours as you can search the
haberdashery section for - I used Rowan pure wool DK
Make a pot of tea, pour yourself a cup. Put on the radio or a good film - I recommend ' A kid for two farthings'.
For U.S. readers, please note I'm using U.K. crochet terms, therefore where I say dc (double crochet) please read sc(single crochet). See here for stitch tutorials.
Using yarn a, work foundation chain in a multiple of ten plus one.
Row 1: 1dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc into each of next 3 chs, *insert hook into next ch, draw up a loop (2 loops on hook), insert hook into 2nd chain from hook, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn around the hook, draw through the 3 loops, 1dc into each of next 3 ch, 3dc into next chain, 1dc into each of next 3 chs, repeat from * to last ch, 2dc into last ch, turn.
Row 2: 1ch, 1dc into same st, 1dc into each of next 3dc, repeat as row 1 from* to last stitch, 2dc into beg skipped ch,turn. Fasten off yarn a.
Row 3: Using yarn b,as Row 2.
Cont. Using each yarn for 2 rows until big enough to cuddle under.
*Please note:I am not a professional crocheter and completely self taught, having said that I have made a couple of really nice blankets and a few pillows and they haven't fallen apart yet!
Have a happy crochet day!
