Rhythmic ripples

Crochet ripple patternThis work in progress is for a baby: a cot or pram blanket made from the Neat Ripple Pattern by Lucy at Attic24.  The pattern is mainly treble crochet stitches and Lucy rhapsodises about the rhythm of working with long rows of trebles.  I can see what she means! There is something very soothing about working only trebles even though I’ve made several mistakes that required ripping out a row or more.  I really love the colours that are going into this blanket.  The light isn’t great in this photo but the colours are a deep raspberry, teal and a sherberty yellow/green.  The rhythm of the ripples makes the colours sing together (as Lucy says).  I couldn’t describe them as harmonizing however; they are more like the interlocking melodies of the Pamela Verrall clarinet pieces played at the last Bradford Music Club session.
