After yesterday’s post, Intimidated I was going through my yarn to find colors for the June and July squares I have planned for the Granny Square Project. I really have got to get caught up on that. (Now that it’s almost August.)
As I was searching through skeins I found one of many unfinished projects in my stash. This Ripple Baby Afghan was one of my early favorites when I first started crocheting as I have mentioned in a previous post; and it gave me a great idea. I can use this pattern for my first parasol! (With thread instead of yarn of course.)
This is an eight-pointed ripple afghan and I think would be perfect to use as a very simple first attempt. I can add a slight modification with rows of open stitches (dc, chain 2, skip 2 sts, dc) in place of the white rows shown here to open the pattern up and highlight the ripple effect.
Once I get this one done, I think I’ll have more confidence to try something like this beauty.
But first I have got to get caught up on The Granny Square Project! Once I finish the total of 4 squares for June and July I will start right up on this lovely. I really hope it works as I’m expecting it to. Very excited!
