This week is all about ripple variations – how to make your ripples pointier, lacier, more or less textured, and so on. This week’s Ripple Mania PDF includes four stitch patterns and one project. Due to Hurricane Sandy, I didn’t take as many pictures as I would usually, but here are the patterns you will find this week.
I’m also very excited to announce two sponsors for the Ripple Mania prizes: Coats & Clark and Leisure Arts.
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 21, Ripple Mania will be converted to a “for sale” pattern ebook.
