Do you recognize this pattern?

How about now?


Here it is in its full glory!

Its the Chromium Star Blanket by Laura Hanks!

I had so much fun working on this. I have to say, I am definitely not a long-term project maker, and this was stretching it a bit for me. Those last few rows I wanted to call it quits. I love the versatility of this pattern though. Choose any colors you want, do as many rows of each that you want and it always comes out looking great! This was my color variation: 5 rows red, 1 white, 4 red, 2 white, 3 red, 3 white, 2 red, 4 white, 1 red, 5 white, 1 hdc red, crab stitch white.
I also added some tassles to the corners, but they look a little small in comparison with the rest of the blanket.... not sure I'm going to keep them on. They made for fun pics though!


  1. That looks great! I love how you did the colors.

  2. Clever pictures! :-)

    I think you should leave the tassles on. It is a baby blanket after all, and the tassles would be something for the baby to practice reaching out and grabbing.

  3. The colors are great! I like the way you used the pictures to keep us guessing. I was almost sure it was a star blanket by the 3rd pic. Leave the tassles. I like them alot!

  4. I agree with Ashley - The color spacing is really neat! I like the tassles, too. Leave 'em on!

  5. Thanks everyone :) I called this post ripples because I got the inspiration from the idea of how a stone makes ripples in the water, they get thinner the further out they go, you know? It would have been nothing without the pattern though :)

  6. LOVE IT and think the tassles are GREAT! (((((HUGS))))) sandi
