The Ugly Blanket

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Zig-Zag Afghan Link to website or photo www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2758 What are you most proud of? The balance of colors, and the even stitches turned out better than I expected. It looks so uniform! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is pretty mindless, but I made some odd mistakes because of it. Just make sure you look it over every couple of rows to be sure you haven't added waves where there shouldn't be any.

I used to make this 'Ripple" Afghan often. It is easy to make & after seeing the picture, it makes me want to make another one, Thanks for sharing.
hanolalaith answered:
I couldn't believe how WARM this blanket was. I need to make one for myself.
SouthernCynthia asked:
The unexpected touch of green seems to bring it all together...very well balanced.

Thank you!

I've used the Project Linus ripple pattern alot. I found it helps just to keep counting to make sure you are staying in pattern and aren't adding or decreasing. I've made the pattern more than a dozen times and I still count. Saves ripping out. Your's came out looking great! Laura
