Another Serving of Raspberry Ripple!

I first released the pattern for the Raspberry Ripple bag in 2013, it’s one of my favourites, but I didn’t do it full justice at the time because I used *whispers* acrylic yarn...I wasn’t too impressed with the original pic either, so a new one was taken in 2016…

Well there is now a new improved version I’m much happier with, the pattern didn’t need any alteration, but I tweaked a few things, like crocheting in the round rather than joining rows. And here is the new cotton version…

Cotton is so much nicer don’t you think?!

    1. If you use mercerised cotton you get a lovely crisp stitch definition, normal cotton is much softer, and some of the chunky cottons are very wool like…I’m turning into a cotton geek lol 😀

      1. Yes, I’ve used the mercerised for making amigurumi specifically because of the definition it brings, and I use the softer cottons when I make summer outfits for my daughter 🙂
        I do prefer it to the acrylics, but tend to use them when making blankets, etc, purely through cost, unfortunately – though I’d use a soft cotton for a baby blanket 🙂
        Do you like the cotton/silk mixes? I’ve used a few of them for garments for my girl 🙂


        1. I used a cotton/silk mix for my pig bag design, it was quite nice to use, but generally I stick to plain cotton…as I’m posting this, Chris is stood next to me knitting with Acrylic LOL!!
