Lacy Ripples Blanket

lacy ripples blanket
This lacy ripples blanket measures 122 x 131 cm using 4 ply medium wool and a 5.5 mm crochet hook. Our completed blanket measures about 150 cm by 140 cm, as it depends on the type of wool and the tension. We can use any combination of wool, I used 2 balls of each of these three colour. The wool I used was the Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo 14 oz 744 yards. This design is from Bernat yarn.

  6. Since I don't know anything about crocheting, this looks very complicated. I wonder if I could learn to do it?
