Hey there! I have a fun little project to share with you today! Over the weekend, I taught myself how to do the ripple crochet stitch. I can safely say I'm already addicted and will start on my first blanket soon!

I taught myself using the AWESOME tutorial from Attic 24. If you are a crocheter, you need to know about this blog. So much inspiration there!
Anyhow, she teaches you how to do a sample that's two rows. I got in the groove and wanted to keep going. Ripping out the stitches and starting a real project seemed sad sooooooo...I turned my practice sample into a ripply mug rug!
I kept repeating the pattern, changing colors as I went. I ended up with this fun little rainbow that I just love! It's 5 stripes total (10 rows). What a sweet little gift this would be with a favorite tea and cookie.
Here's a second pinnable image for you :)
So get to it! Teach yourself how to do the ripple stitch and turn your practice piece into a perfect little mug rug! Happy stitching friends!
