Build your own Ripple Blanket with Becky

This design-your-own ripple blanket will commence on Nov 7 during the crochet class.
Becky has come up with four basic ripple recipes, with instructions and examples for each. Each student should come to class with an idea of what yarn they would like to use and appropriate hook(s). In the first session, we would review the patterns (they are all easy) and hand out the instructions for swatches. After a week or two, each student should return with a swatch she likes and a target size for a blanket/afghan. We’d use the swatch to calculate yarn amounts and go from there. The project would be finished at their convenience.  Call to sign up.
