This week is all about squaring up a ripple – how to combine a ripple pattern with a straight edged stitch. This week’s Ripple Mania PDF includes a baby blanket project.
I’m also very excited to announce two more sponsors for the Ripple Mania prizes: Magique Enterprises and Lion Brand Yarn are joining Red Heart and Leisure Arts by contributing awesome prizes for participants! I’m gathering together pictures of the prizes and hope to share them next week.
The CAL is free to join. Each week, an updated PDF will be available to download on Ravelry, and Ravelry members can chat in the Ripple Mania CAL thread in the Underground Crafter group. (You do not have to be a Ravelry member to download the PDF.) Once the CAL ends on November 28, Ripple Mania will be converted to a “for sale” pattern ebook.
