Diagram for the 18 plus 3 stitch ripple scarf from the previous post, hand drawn by yours truly so you have to bear with my poor limited drawing ablilities. Also I have omitted the cross line for the trebles for clarity so they look like half trebles BUT they are all TREBLES.
In the above I have indicated the 12 sts of a single repeat.
This is a blanket I nade a few years ago now, in pure merino wool and it's been in storage because it was put out on the sofa daily by my eldest- when I was always folding it away at night for the following evening- and the dogs chewed in during the day....Disaster!
It was quite bad, but it looks OK as I had forgotten that in the main I have already repaired the rips...
See? By some careful re-crocheting and sewing up of the half trebles.
And the wool ends that I had crocheted over, started to come out and the I thought I;d add a border to cover them but it looks awful so I'll have to try sewing them back in with sewing threads as they are too short now.
Another rip, this one in cream mended....
And this was my very FIRST blanket ever, in MARBLE CHUNKY and as you can see the dogs have made it their own....
It needs a wash and then I think I'll either leave it as a dog-bed blanket OR repair it.
What do you think?
P.S.: the diagram above seems to match up with the Marble ripple in terms of stitches but not the merino I think.
Hello and welcome to my homely world in a small Oxfordshire town in 2013.I am a full- time working mum.

This is to be my diary of events for a creative crafting sort of person with all the happenings that occur in this day and age in English family life.I am very much learning as I go along, my eldest is my first at all the things that occur in a young person's life as it's all very different from when I was a little girl and I did not grow up in England.

My passion is to make things with yarn or fabric or thread : any textile crafts or beads too.
