BLOG OF A CRAZY CROCHETING FOOL

I got this idea on Sunday night. I chained 16 then single crocheted in each stitch across chain one 1 turn (15 stitches)
I continued single crocheting until I got tired of the color then added a new one. I did this until I had 132 rows of single crochet. You can make one as long as you'd like. This one is about 5x5. I used a USA Susan Bates 'K' hook.
After I made 7 strips I then held two strips together and single crocheting through both pieces made 1 single crochet, chain 1, skip 1 row, 1 single crochet in next row down the sides. I did this with each piece. So it looks hand sewed on one side and different on the other. I then did a 1sc, ch1, skip 1 all around the edge making sure to put 3 single crochet stitches in each end. To complete the lapghan I did two rows of half double crochet all around. Hope you all like this one. It was fun creating it.

M or W ripple

Ripple with multicolored yarns
TADA!! Finally finished the ripple I started
1 row cream, 2 rows multicolored or solid color,
1 row cream or any colors you choose.
45 x 50 using a K hook
Pattern as follows:
foundation row chain 150 sc in 2nd chain from hook
and in next chain, *3 sc in next chain sc in next
two chains, skip 1 chain, sc in next two chains repeat
from* across to end.
(In case anyone is wondering why? in the foundation chain I usually only skip 1 because I don't like that big loopy chain it leaves it you skip 2 so when I do the regular row I skip two and it brings everything into a nice pattern.)
Row 1 ALWAYS Skip first stitch. Single crochet in next two stitches, *3 sc in next stitch, sc in next two stitches,
skip 2 stitches, sc in next two stitches repeat from * across, ending with one sc left uncrocheted at end. Chain 1 turn
Row 2 skip first stitch sc in next 2 stitches (up hill),
*3 sc in next stitch (top of mountain), sc in next two stitches (down hill), skip two stitches (in the valley), sc in next two stitches (up hill) repeat from * across leaving last stitch uncrocheted.
repeat row 2 until you reach the length you like.
