PLEASE NOTE - This item is for the PDF pattern and NOT the actual afghan/blanket.
I’ve wanted to make a ripple blanket, but struggle with crocheting straight rows, they involve counting stitches, which I never get right however hard I try, so I decided to make a ripple with motifs. The blanket is named after The Rising Sun pub (my “local”), at the bottom of the hill where I live, which faces east over the harbour wall in Lynmouth. If you get up early enough in the morning you can see the sun rising over Countisbury Hill. Rising Sun has waves of green and blue symbolising the sea, nestled in the bright pink and orange sun rise.
