The beginning of a crazy project

Good morning!

How are you? How was your weekend? Still in holiday mode Like myself? We are having now some really hot days but this did not stop me from beginning a very big crazy project – blanket which will become a bedspread :)

A crazy ripple blanket which (I hope so) will become a bedspread for one of the girl’s bed…


If you are a follower of my facebook page you already saw this pic above :)

I started this project with a thinner yarn than my usual Nako one. It is Mirage a 100% acrylic yarn which I crochet with a 3.5mm hook…


I really want to get rid of my old stash of this yarn so I can buy some new colours in october…

So I began this ripple…a very big one…each row with a different colour…

The pattern is here if you wish to make one too ;)


Each row is taking me half an hour to finish and I am a really fast crocheter ;)

So 30 minutes for only a row :) That’s why I’m calling it crazy ripple because it will make me crazy at the end I know…but I can’t help myself and I am totally addicted right now :D


I am loving so much the colors…

and I know that when it will become bigger it will be winter and cold days here and it will be the perfect project to crochet on cold evenings :) (Can’t wait!)

So, my lovelies, that was the beginning of the crazy ripple project I started on August8…

Now I’ve added some more rows… and I can exactly tell how many hours I crocheted already :) hahaha

Of course, I will have to crochet another bedspread for the second bed of my girl’s bedroom…another one with the same colors…

I will think about that second one later :) One crazy project at a time :)

I’m wishing you now a crazy happy week!

Stay cool and happy!

    I love the colours very much.

    I SO know the feeling: I made a blanket to my brother (thank you for the pattern!), and it really was an eternal project. And in the end it was very heavy to turn around and make a new row… And this looks like it’s still bigger than my blanket.

    Good luck! And again: love the colours. <3 As always.

    Angie, Que lindo los colores¡¡. Yo estuve tratando de tejer en telar, pero la verdad es que me equivoqué al urdir así que deberé comenzar todo nuevamente…..

    Very beautiful! What a great project, Angie! And the timing is good too. When you crocheted lots and lots of rows cooler days will be there, and it’s nice and comfortable to crochet with this blanket covering you already. Cheers, Sonja

    Hee,hee…I’m in the middle of a “crazy” project also. I am making a bobble blanket in queen size! Bobbles just “eat” yarn! I’m only on my third repeat of the sequence of 12 stripes and I have been working on it since May! MAYBE it will be done for Fall/Winter 2014! Enjoy the process…

    It’s very pretty so far :-) I love the bright colors. A big ripple blanket can be a bit daunting because it becomes tedious very fast, but I know you’ll have fun with it.
    Blessings :-)

    Dear Angie, Your new afghan to be reminds me of a beautiful summer time rainbow, gorgeous! Love your ideas. Much Love to you and yours.

  21. Darlene Lehman says:

    Yes, beautiful colors!! I know what you mean with the big blanket during the warm weather. I am now working on one with strips, all done in popcorns. They call it Mile-a-Minute, but it doesn’t feel very fast when you stop to close the popcorn after every 4 stitches! I chose it so I could complete the strips and sew them together in cooler times. Best to you and your family.
