Project Linus Blanket #2

As crocheting goes, this blanket was easy to work on as long as I kept count of my stitches. There were a few times that I miscounted and had to rip out what I had already done. I really enjoyed working on this one so much that I think I’m going to make a few more ripples.

This will make a good baby blanket, but that’s about it. I have another pattern that makes a larger blanket so I’m going to attempt that one next. I just have to decide what colors I want to use.

There was one more thing that I noticed after finishing this blanket:

Now on to blanket #3…
