Veterans Round Ripple Blanket

November 10, 2019 No comments yet

I just finished up this round ripple blanket for a local Veterans Outreach Program. I thought it would be timely to post about it in honor of Veterans Day. This 12-point round ripple is mostly crocheted with some scrap yarns and a few skeins of vintage yarn.

I just love crocheting round ripples as you just can’t go wrong with color combinations. It seems that no matter what mash-up I do with yarns, it always comes out looking good. The local Veterans facility gave me many of the skeins used in this project. And while I tried to keep colors coordinated, it all worked out nicely. This round ripple pattern is from Aggie May of Crochetville. If you have problems finding the pattern, just send me an email and I will help you out. Finished size of my round ripple is 47 inches wide which should make a nice throw or wheelchair lapghan.


So in honor of Veterans Day 2019, thank you Veterans, active military and those who gave all. We are forever in your debt for keeping our country safe and free.

Happy Memorial Day

As we celebrate Memorial Day, let’s not forgot the reason. Remember and honoring our Veterans and those who gave all.

On this Memorial Day 2019, thanks to all our Veterans here and gone. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

If you are looking to craft for a cause, may I suggest Warmth for Warriors. It is an organization who honors our troops and Veterans through crafting hats and mini stockings for Christmas. If you are looking for a crafting group such as this, please join us over at the Warmth for Warriors group on Ravelry.
