Joseph Ripple Throw

Back in the spring, I took Mum to investigate a wool shop we had not visited before called Little Woolie - London, which is in Shortlands, near Bromley. I purchased two patterns - the tea cosy I knitted for Mum for mother's day and this Joseph Ripple Throw, both designed by people at the store.
The throw is worked in feather and fan stitch and quite simple once you know the stitches.

There were over three hundred stitches to the row in this blanket so I had it on a circular needle, it also became very heavy as work progressed. There are fifteen bands of colour, which are meant to be repeated eight times, but I stopped after five as I wanted it as a lap rug for my father when sitting in his chair and didn't want to to be too big. It also fitted over the top of the single bed when he was no longer well enough to get up. I gave it to Dad at Christmas, he had seen it in the making and admired it (please see yesterday's post).

In the making - early days 

Thanks for looking
