RWB Wavy Ripple Lapghan

September 1, 2018 1 comment

I just finished up a RWB (red, white & blue) wavy ripple lapghan for this year’s Warmth for Warriors blanket drive. In case you are not aware of the organization, Warmth for Warriors collects blankets, lapghans, hats, and mini Christmas stockings each year for our troops and Veterans. If you love to knit or crochet and would like to support our soldiers, come check out our group on Ravelry.

Here is my wavy ripple that I crocheted in a lapghan sized blanket. I used this wavy ripple blanket pattern and chained 107 stitches to start. I used an I (5.5 mm) crochet hook along with skeins of red, white, and blue Red Heart jumbo yarn. I probably only used about half the jumbo skeins for this project as I still had at least half a skein leftover in each color when I finished.

I did 10 rows of ripples in each color before changing

Lumberjack Flannelghan Lapghan

The lumberjack flannelghan is a beautiful blanket pattern and I just love the look of it. There are many different color combinations that can be crocheted to make this blanket. I used soft navy and white Red Heart yarn to crochet my blanket.

Here is the link to the original lumberjack flannelghan pattern. The original pattern makes a 5 x 7 foot blanket. I wanted to crochet a small blanket that would be a lapghan size.

My lapghan was crocheted using a N (9 mm) hook with two strands of yarn held together. I played around with the pattern to make the squares smaller so I could crochet a lapghan sized blanket. I chained 16 to start and did 8 rows of DC for the first block. There are 15 DC’s on each row counting the Ch-2 at the beginning of the row. I crocheted 8 rows for each color square with a total of 5 squares for each strip. Each strip is about 7 inches wide. There are a total of 5 strips in my lapghan blanket.

For the border, I crocheted

Wavy Ripple Lapghan Pattern

July 24, 2013 7 comments

This is my first wavy ripple project. I was inspired by Attic24 who did one of her beautiful colorful afghans using this stitch design. Here is a closeup of my wavy ripple pattern after I crocheted the stripes for one side of my lapghan.

I set out to crochet my lapghan to fit a person in a wheelchair. I wasn’t sure about the starting chain number of stitches I would need for the lapghan so I ended up doing a chain of 145 stitches for my base row. Well it’s a lot wide than I would have liked at 44 inches so I ended up doing this as a long lapghan that goes down and covers a person’s legs. I crocheted this lapghan working it in rows vertically for a total of 48 rows. I used a Bernat 14 oz pounder-style worst weight yarn in a clay color along with some scrap brown yarn for stripes.

Here is the finished photo of my wheelchair wavy ripple lapghan.
